Just came across this through slickdeals.net. Is this a good blade to use in a miter saw?

Does your miter saw have a 1in arbor? I believe this blade is for that type of saw.

Just note what it’s good for. Looks like a good deal to me: http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-DCB1260-Daredevil-60-Tooth-Circular/dp/B008FYUUS0

It’s a decent price for that blade, but it’s a construction grade blade that’s not particularly well suited for woodworking. Should be fine for cutting 2×4’s.

Yep, I have a 12” miter saw and it has a 1” arbor. I bought the saw on a deal last year but never got a chance to put it to use. Have been wanting to upgrade the stock blade to a good quality blade.

Listen to whatever Knottscott writes, he knows most about blades.

I took knottscott’s advice and didn’t pull the trigger.

Thanks for your help guys.
