Hello LJs. I have been reading KnotScott’s great reviews of TS blades recently but I have a very specific request of the community. I recently attempted one of the Doug Stowe-type keyed miter boxes with my generally quite adequate Freud Fusion combination blade, but the ATB grind of this blade leaves a disappointing cut of the key slots.
That said, I know that there is a Forrest WWII out there with a FTG, but until I win the lottery, or it’s time to buy another go-to blade, I’d like your recommendation for a blade that is:
A buddy of mine gave me his stock (came with the saw) Delta ATBR and it was so evil sounding that I shut it down right away. To be fair it had not been stored adequately (thrown into a cat litter bucket filled with saved offcuts with no cover, at an angle etc). I truly don’t want to spend much here – just wanting a carbide toothed blade around 25 or so bucks. Any thoughts?
