Recommend an circular saw blade for the perfect cut


HI can you guys please recommend what to look out for in a blade to made the perfect smooth cut? I am an end user so cutting speed or a lasting blade isnt important. Whats really important is a blade that can cut plywood + wood very smoothly. Also is it possible to cut laminate with it? I am having a 6" makita cutter with a 60 tooth ATB carbide tipped blade, looking for something that can cut nicer :) thanks in advance

you're going to have a limited choice of blades for that 6" machine and you'll pay more for what you do find. move up to 7-1/4" and the choices and prices are better
a good quality atb blade will make a smooth cut in ply and solids and last well doing it. use an edge guide and feed slowly.
for laminate, melamine and such, use a melamine blade, and don't use that blade for anything else.

A Forrest blade can take a bowed board and flatten it? I think not. --dave

My Forrest blades vacuum the shop, do the laundry, and walk on water, so I can't see why they can't flatten boards.
Your's don't?

But now YOU forgot wax the car, mow the lawn, and unclog toilets!
In fact, I'm getting rid of ALL of my other possessions, as I can do everything with Forrest blades.
I'll now head back into the shop to spray lacquer with a WWII.
