Topic tags/keywords: question resource tip miter saw blade tablesaw sharpening milling

Anybody have/use this blade? Rockler has them on sale for $49.99 normally $119.79. Rockler says it’s full kerf which is my preference but in the description it says Kerf: 0.087” and plate thickness 0.126”. That be a problem unless it’s reliefed, think they might have that backwards. Says ideal for miter saw but I’d be using it on my table saw since both my miter saw and RAS are 12”.

But for that price it be a good general purpose blade if nothing else. Might stop in and take a look at them, want to see how much carbide each tooth has. I’ve seen less expensive blades have notably less carbide and since I have my blades sharpened as needed more carbide is always better IMO.

Yeah, I think they definitely reversed those parameters! That’s a lot teeth for a general purpose blade on a TS, but should be excellent at fine crosscuts, ply, and other sheet goods. Ripping anything remotely thick (1/2” or more) would likely result in burning. Looks to be a nicely made blade, and the price is good. AFAIK, Stanley B&D morphed the former DeWalt Series 60 blades into the new Delta Industrial line.

Hm, thanks, ply and sheet good i.e. veneers would be a good use then. Leaning towards picking one up…

If the blade is intended for a miter saw, the teeth will have a negative rake, not the best for a table saw which uses positive rake blades.

Well it’s got a 10 degree hook, doesn’t say positive or negative but if I can believe the picture then definitely positive.

The little drawing on the blade shows it as a positive rake. See here. Why they show that little drawing going the opposite way that the teeth are going on the blade when your looking right at the blade is backa**wards. :-)

Stopped at Rockler, they didn’t have any, turns out online only, didn’t catch that from the email this morning. Manager’s gonna get me one to look at if I like it I’ll buy it. If it has as much carbide on it as the Delta 50 tooth they did have it’s a done deal. I’ll know Thursday.

A low to negative hook is strongly suggested for a sliding miter saw and a RAS, but is less critical for a regular compound miter saw. +10° shouldn’t be an issue on a CMS or a TS.

So now I had to look at the blade I have on my 12” RAS, it has a 2 degree positive rake. I bought it because I had one on my miter saw and it was rated for and did excellent crosscuts (Freud LU80R012). But now I’m hearing the RAS should have a negative rake. Can’t say I noticed that blade wanting to walk on the RAS, gonna havta make some test cuts and pay close attention.

Curt, this blade looks very similar to the Dewalt line of blades which have been getting positive reviews.

Curt – Sticking with a negative hook takes the guess work out, but it doesn’t have to be a strictly negative hook as long as its roughly +5° or lower for a RAS or SCMS….there are many excellent RAS and SCMS blades that have a slight positive hook. The LU80 is suggested for ”Miter/Chop Saws, Table Saws and Radial Arm Saws”

Thanks Sharon and Scott for the info. I’ve been using a RAS since I was a teenager and I do know what walking on one feels like when using it and I didn’t recall that happening when using the LU80. That explains it. Looking forward to getting this Delta blade.

Hey Scott, looking closer at that picture you posted I noticed it lists crosscuts as good and chip board as excellent, exactly opposite of what Freud shows here and what is printed on the blade. Weird.

A precision Hi-ATB high tooth count blade like the LU80 should give cleaner crosscuts than any other design available. I’d say Freud’s website has it right. It should also cut very cleanly in chipboard, but would likely wear faster than other grinds in that stuff, which might be why they’d only rate it as “good” for chipboard.
