I need a 12” for a compound miter saw. The blade on that is hopeless. I might like one for my 10” but the blade on that is tolerable.
I have three candidates:
-5° hook, 15° ATB, 60T, .090 kerf, .071 plate, ~$70 for 10”
-5° hook. 30° ATB/R with presumably a flat tooth every 5th tooth, 80T, .110 kerf, plate not specified, ~$75 for 10” (Infinity sale price)
-5° hook, 30° ATB/R (4 teeth plus flat rakeer), 80T, .125 kerf, plate not specified, ~$150
There is also the Chopmaster signature: -5° hook, 30° ATB/R (2 teeth plus flat rakeer), 90T, .110 kerf, plate not specified, ~$170
And the Miter Master: Similar to Chopmaster except for .105 kerf and ~$205 price
The similarities between the Infinity and Forrest would seem to make the Freud the odd man (blade?) out. It would also seem to indicate the Infinity is a good value.
