I have been trying to find a table saw blade to cut finger joints and need a 10 inch blade with .125 kerf with an FTG. Having no luck.

I was also looking quite awhile ago, couldn’t find what I wanted in anything other than a 24 tooth rip blade – not the best if you want a really flat surface.

Good luck!

I’m on my 2nd (Still have to send the first out for sharpening)

These things are incredible for the price. They cut extremely well, leave a perfectly flat bottom and they seem to last forever in terms of sharpness.

After many hours of use, I don’t see me switching to another blade.

There’s also the Ridge Carbide TS2000, which is a combo blade with every 5th tooth having a FTG. I use that as my every day blade, and quickly becoming my never change out blade, because it seems to do everything really well.

i highly recommend the lm72 for single blade box joints and its great for ripping. also a combo blade with some flat teeth wont give you the cut you want, the atb teeth are wider than the ftg teeth. good luck

The TS2000 is an ATB/R design. It does have some FTG teeth, but the ATB teeth protrude slightly above it to reduce tearout on cross grain cuts. The end result is that it doesn’t leave a truly flat bottom.

Here is a Freud that is a 60 tooth TCG combination blade. The extra teeth should give you a cleaner cut and it’s pretty doggone cheap for a Freud Industrial blade!

I believe the carbides are offset to make the two sizes so the blades can’t be used for a 1/8” cut.

Several years ago I was at a woodworking show and Forrest was there. The company, not the dude. Anyway, I bought a blade which was essentially a WWII but had a custom #1 grind. If I remember correctly, it was just a WWII that had the devil ears ground flat to produce a flat bottomed kerf. That was before they had special box joint blades, or blade sets.
