Assuming that I could only own one blade for my table saw (10" Delta
contractor saw w/52" Beissemer fence), what would be the best one to own?
What make and model? How many TPI? Could I get away with using the same
blade on hardwood, softwood, plywood, MDF, melanine...?
Providing your saw is properly "tuned up".
Forrest WoodWorker II, 40 tooth "REGULAR KERF"
30 tooth if you will more often cut 2" or thicker stock than not.
As long as you take care of the blade and let only Forrest to the sharpening
you can use it for all with out question except the melamine. BUT with
extra care it will cut melamine nicely also.
Look to Spend about $100.00. You will never look back.
I just bought a WWII... Haven't gotten it on the saw, mostly because I
simply forgot it was sitting out there after I mowed the grass. Damn
this wreck for eating up some of my time. :)
A couple nights ago, after I had already ordered the WWII, I was running
some walnut through the TS. First time that I've worked with walnut. I
had a CMT blade in there, not sure how many teeth, but it was a combo
blade. The walnut came out nice and smooth. I started wondering if I
didn't just waste some money. Next I ran some pine, milled 2x4, through
the saw and started praying that the WWII does a better job. I haven't
been too terribly upset with the CMT, but after getting the Chopmaster
blade I thought the WWII might eliminate sanding for me. I'll find out
