I don’t know if this blade would be useful or even safe in my table saw. I can’t seem to find any information about it online. It was provided when I purchased the 10” Jet Contractor saw along with several circular saw blades. Any information would be appreciated. Sorry for the rotated image. Not sure how to fix that and I am leaving for work in few minutes so no time to mess with it.

Thanks,
John

Looks like a fine toothed blade. Should work just fine in the TS for crosscut work if the arbor hole and blade is true.
Don’t use it for rip work. You’ll get a less than acceptable cut.

Looks fine….has a positive hook, large carbide teeth, probably made in the US….one of Oldham’s better blades (far better than the junk they’re selling at HD these days). From what I can tell in the pic, it looks to be an ATB grind with a fairly top steep bevel…maybe even steep enough to be considered a “Hi-ATB” grind (> 25°), which would be excellent in fine crosscuts, ply, veeners, etc. If it’s clean, give it a try…if not, clean it first. Looks to be worth having sharpened if necessary.
