  • New Saw Blades Needed

    i havent bought saw blades in two decades but my old freuds are just about past being sharpened

    who is the best place for new blades, not afraid to buy quality and im looking for a rip blade and a crosscut

    i do lots of very high precision small work rather long production runs and they will be used on my delta tilty 10 inch, 2hp

    the old blades are thin kerf rip 24 t and the crosscuts are ultrafine crosscut, 80t i believe, got 5 altogether all freuds

    im not particularly stuck on freuds though!

            Have a look at Hill Country Tools, sold through sharpening services. I bought from Sonny's in Waterloo. I have a 10 x 60 ATB full kerf and am loving it. Big solid carbides, holds an edge very well and smooth cutting. About $80

              Hi Steve, FS Tools or Royce Ayr would be my choice......And definitely not thin kerf........Regards, Rod

                  Steve, a 2HP saw would have no problem with a standard kerf rip blade.

                  I had a 1.25 HP saw that had no problem with a standard kerf rip blade in 2 inch hardwood.......Regards, Rod

                    Another vote for FS Tools. Their 24Tooth 'Glue Line Rip' and 60T Crosscut 10" blades work very well for me.

                      i know that! the thin kerfs are left over from a cheap and nasty modern delta that i had before the beaver 8 inch saw

                        I'm just a hobbiest but I'm surprised no one recommends CMT blades. I have a 10" CMT crosscut blade on my RAS and I'm pleased with it, the rest of my blades are Freud.

                              What tooth arrangement on your Dimar? I have a 100t Dimar for particle board. It's a TCG and when sharp it doesn't need a scoring blade ahead.

                              Two good blades for that price including shipping and taxes is plenty good. I wouldn't sneeze at it.
