if you had to pick one table saw blade, what would it be? Freud industrial? Forrest WWII? Infinity? Other options? I have several different ones for different purposes obviously but just seeing what other people think!

If I had to use just one, it would be a 30 tooth combo blade. Probably a WW2, but I’m not convinced there aren’t other brands that would be just as good. This blade would not do well cross grain on plywood, but it would making rip cuts in 1”+ hardwoods a lot easier.

If it had to be one – Like Fred, I’d probably go with the 30T WWII for its versatility in thicker ripping, but it really depends on your saw and what you do. The Infinity Combomax is a solid easy to use all around performer at ~ $70 too, but the Infinity Super General would be better for finer crosscuts and ply than either. I tried…best I could do was 3 blades!

If I had to use one blade I’d probably just quit woodworking. There nothing worse that looking at a finished project and seeing chip out on the cuts. I don’t believe they is one blade that can do it all with some chip out some where.

- WhyMe

The TS2000 is extremely competitive with the 40T WWII, and can often be had for ~ $95. Not an inexpensive blade by any means, but is less than the Forrest.
