I couldn’t find much info on sub 10’’ table saw blades, so i was hoping someone here had some experience. I’m tempted to try one or both of the following blades since I respect the freud name:
I’ve tried circ saw blades in my table saw and really like the noise reduction and thin kerf, though it seems that the kerf may be a bit too thin, causing deflection under stress. Also, the carbide teeth seem a bit lacking (to be expected for a $10 blade).
One final thought is that if the run-out on my arbor is significant (I dont have a dial indicator yet), then the greater the diameter of the blade, the greater the movement, and that a smaller blade would give smoother cuts. I don’t cut much material over 6/4, so i dont see this being a drawback.
Anyone have any thoughts/experience, i would appreciate all input.
