Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m looking for a good full kerf (.126) FTG rip blade for my Homecraft 8” TS. Does anyone have experience with this and could recommend a blade?

I’ve been using Frued 7 1/4” blades on my 10” saw. they have a 1/16” kerf and cut beautifully. They are made for skill saws that are battery operated so the kerf is real small.

I got mine at Home Depot when they had a special buy 2 blades for $10.00 in a package. I’m using 24 tooth but they go up to 60 tooth for a higher price.

Great blades.
