I guess this is almost a silly question, but what do you use if youre cutting something you dont want to run your “good” blade through?
A friend of mine recently bought a house and tore apart a deck in the back yard. He wants to repurpose the wood into garage shelves/work bench. He cant even identify what the wood is, but its pressure treated im sure, and on an older home. I can only imagine the condition the wood is in: nails, staples, dirt, who knows. He asked that I come help him. I figure it could be fun, and I can drag my bosch saw over to his house without any trouble.
I dont think I want to use my fusion for this. I could obviously use the blade that came with the saw (a 24t rip), or go grab a marathon(no), or even a dewalt construction. Should I take a step up and grab a 24t diablo? Bosch daredevil? I dont require great cuts, and dont want to spend $40 dollars on something I wont use again, but I also dont want to feel like im using a hatchet on it.
Is it the no brainer to just toss the blade that came with it on it and not even worry about spending money?
I also think theres a good possibility we will wind up running down to HD and grabbing 2×4s. But ill atleast humor his idea and make an afternoon out of it.
