Cutting Melamine

Page 2 of 2  


This may be true sometimes, but considering that blade is about 14 years old by now, and has had lots of abuse heaped on it, it's certainly not a factor with this one.
Not so with the Stanley wobble dado I bought. Lost three teeth in almost the first use. Mind you, that was probably only 24T.

Forrest makes blades to cut just about everything. If you have enough, buy a blade that is meant for it.

I use a Freud Diablo 80T blade. Good finish, cuts both easily.

Melamine itself won't hurt the saw blade, but the particle board behind it is very rough on them. It's loaded with glue.
