I bought some 22mm laminated MDF sheets cheap on ebay over the weekend to build into storage cabinets for the workshop. I tend just to keep a 40T combo blade on the saw for most of my work. I was concerned however the blade would chip the laminate surface so I had a look at my blade collection. I have an 8” thin kerf 60 T blade so I slotted it onto the saw, figuring more teeth would provide a finer finish. Lo-and-behold the blade gave a perfect cut. I’m not sure what sort of blade it is because it came as a job lot with an old saw I bought years ago and never used.
I would like to ask, what is the best saw blade for cutting laminate boards/veneered plywood etc? How many teeth should I be looking at and do I need to consider rake angle? does this make a difference?
Is there a preferred brand and what sort of money is involved in such a blade, I know they don’t come cheap but I guess it will last a lifetime if looked after.
