Topic tags/keywords: saw blade teeth

I just picked up three 10” – 120 tooth carbide blades for my saw for under $30.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemVersion&item=250565984270&view=all&tid=0

I ran a couple of test cuts and found the cut edges to be square and almost polished.

Does anyone have any experience with these blades? Are the teeth going to start flying off today? And, besides cutting speed, what might I be giving up with 120 teeth? It seems to me, in saw blades as in dentistry, the more teeth, the merrier.

Any advice would be appreciated as my education continues.

Thanks

Grettings lovin: More teeth on a saw blade is not always necessarily better, in my opinion. 120 teeth is a lot. The most I run on my RAS is 80 teeth, as with my miter saw…... never that many on a t.s. for me. I use Forrest saw blades on the t.s, which is 40 teeth, or 50 teeth. Even if you cut a lot of melamine, an 80 tooth blade is all you need, if it ’s a melamine blade. I think that 120 is over-kill on most saws, but that’s just me like I said. You’ve got them, so you might as well use them. Run them for awhile and see how they do….... I have NO experience with them. You’ll get good advice here on LJs from a lot of knowledgable wwers, and a lot of different opinions….... all good.
