A friend of mine gave me (for the price of two lunches) his old
craftsman 10" RAS. I squared it up, put in a new work surface and cut
some 3/4 inch baltic birch. I had problems with making the cuts. I
tried a steady slow pull, but the blade would self feed, make a lot of
ringing noise and leave an ugly ruffled kerf.
I read some previous posts and found that is a symptom of a dull blade.
So, I'm thinking of buying a new blade and have identified the Frued
TK806. Is that the ultimate RAS Crosscut blade? or is there something
I found the TK806 on sale for around $60 including shipping, but I
could go up to $80 or so. I have a crowbar handy.
