Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw ftg blade

Quick post, I need a Flat Top Grind Table saw blade. For miter splines and such. Suggestions on a specific blade please, (I know Freud makes a good blade) which one? Is there a combination blade with a FTG? How about 60 tooth cross-cut with a FTG? Thanks

I have a Freud 24-tooth rip blade that’s FTG, but it’s thin-kerf. The full thickness may be cut the same way as well.

The vast majority of FTG blades are 20T or 24T rippers…good full kerf examples: Freud LM72, Infinity 010-024, CMT 201.024.10, Amana RB1020, Forrest, Delta 35-7642/35-7124, etc. Thin kerf examples: Freud LU87, Infinity 010-124, CMT 202.024.10, DeWalt DW7124PT, etc.

Bosch makes a 60T TK FTG CB1060L, but I haven’t tried it, and haven’t been overly impressed with this particular line….the good news is that you don’t need stellar performance for splines.

Any of the combination blades that have FTG teeth will also either alternate with ATB teeth or TCG teeth that will protrude above the FTG teeth so the bottom won’t be perfectly flat.

Good information. Thanks for the leg work. The Bosch is interesting in that maybe I wouldn’t have to swap back and forth so often. Probably will just go with the LM72.
