We have a lot of common blades then we got a WW-II. It is the only quality
blade we have and we love it. So much so that we bought a second one just
to have on hand, then a 12" for the miter saw and the dado set.
We're completely satisfied with these blades and their sharpening service.
There may be others just as good, but we're as happy as we can be with
these. We make custom kitchen and rec. room cabinets and restore classic
mahogany boats. The blades serve us well.
I have had a WWII for about 6-8 months now and have to say, I am one of
the ones that think this is an ok blade, but certainly not the best. For
the best, get a fine crosscut blade and a good rip blade. I think I have
gone off the 'combo' design.
I just bought a thin kerf WWII combo blade to replace a regular kerf
Ridge Carbide, and the WWII does an even better job than the RC, and
the RC was really, really good.
I have the Ridgid TS3100 portable table saw, and the difference
between the two may simply be that the saw works better with a thin
kerf blade. I don't know. However, the WWII seems to burn the wood
It's a great blade.
Yes, Leon, I thought of this, and this is what the standard reply has
been to my type of comment, but I can assure you that I have double
checked my setup, and I do not believe it is my saw. Could be wrong, but
I get better results with other blades.
I'LL second that, not that impressed with my WWII as compared to a Freud
Combo from Lowes for 35.00. My Powermatic PM2000 was dialed in using a
dial indicator setup on the miter slot to blade,dial mag base to arbor,
miter slot to fence with the prescribed -.005" toe out on the trailing
edge of the fence. Maybe Amazon is selling seconds!
