I'm considering purchasing a jointer to use on a number of pending home
projects that will require jointing boards together. In the process of
reviewing my options I came across the Freud LM74R Glue Line Rip Blade. The
promotional info on the blade indicates that it eliminates the need for a
jointer and it cost about 1/7 the price of a good 6" jointer. I realize
that a table saw cannot true up a warped or cupped board. However, if a
board is reasonably flat to begin with it might work. Does anyone have any
personal experience this blade?

No personal experience with the blade, But other experiences tell me that any
decent blade will do the job. You've still got to have a straight edge along
the fence, and 90 degrees laying on the table, Just do a good job of cutting,
then glue it. Today's glues are phenomenal at their job. Tom

I have the (don't laugh!) set of clamps sold at Rockler that you can use on
your TS as a jointer. Used in combination with a good TS blade, I've made
several table tops with no problems. Not saying I wouldn't love a jointer,
but what I have works for me right now.

These work just fine. You have to have one reasonably straight edge for a
saw blade to be of any benefit and that little clamp set does the trick.
'Course I use the WW II blade.
