Have been looking on line for a carbide, the Borg's, called Rockler, they
don't have one. Lowe's shows a Dewalt non carbide. Will have to look at
Lowe's tomorrow when I'm there to see if maybe they have something not on

Thanks, that's one place I didn't go to. Just got the Dewalt at Lowe's. Made

gotta figure a way to square everything up, beings these pieces are too big
to rip on my TS.
I have a Freud Diablo also, from Chase Pitkin. I think that's a pretty
local chain to New York/PA area, but Amazon.com has them too. This
blade has produced extremely smooth cuts in both plywood and solid
hardwood on my almost-antique Skil saw, as long as I use a good
