Although I've had a table saw for a while, I'm not quite up to amateur
status yet, so be gentle if this is a dumb question. :)
I have a DeWalt DW706 miter saw, and the 60 tooth blade that came with
it. That's fine for trim work, but I need another blade, and I'm
looking for suggestions. I would like to get a 12" blade that will be
good for general woodworking, *and* construction, without breaking the
bank. For construction work, I will mostly be cutting 2X4s, and an
occasional 4X4. Is this asking too much from a blade? Any suggestions?
I have the red Diablo blade (from HD, 80-tooth) and it's
fine for woodworking and fine trim work. I kept and use
the OEM DW706 blade for construction work
(2x4's, etc), it only take a few minutes to swap blades.

I had one better than this last year. I had JUST picked up a
pair of pants from a local retailer, and, was wearing them when I
walked into a Pep Boy's auto parts store. I did hear the sensor
chirp when I walked in, but, did not think anything of it, as folks
were leaving at the same time. Well, after getting the oil I needed,
I started to head out the door, and, the blasted alarm went off.
The clerk asked me to hang on for a minute, I assume so the manager
could review tapes or something. The manager showed up a couple
of minutes later, and said I could take off.
As it turned out, there was a tuned circuit glued in the back
pocket of the pants, apparently an antitheft thing. I took it out
and had no further problems.
I suppose the thing that annoys me the most about this is
the same reason I am angered by the airport searches. It simply
says that EVERYONE is a criminal, and should be treated so. Now,
if this is true, then America is further along the path of self-
destruction than I thought. If it is false, then, it is punishing
the majority because of the actions of a minority...which is also
Off the soap box now.
A couple of years ago I bought a pair of pants (or whatever they call them)
at Macy's (Paramus Park). When I got home the antitheft thing was still
attached, complete with warning how the pants would get stained/painted if
I tried to remove the thing. I had to go back to the store and complain.
I got another discount (I believe $10 on an already discounted el cheapo
pair) in part because I was "righteously indignated" because of the trouble
to drive back and forth.
Actually, it's worse than that. A criminal has more rights than you
do in an airport search. Probable cause must be shown before you can
simply ask somebody to strip for a search, not so in the airport.
Happened to a guy in front of me, who had another card, so I never got the
option. It does teach you to keep clear of the little swiper, though.
