What is your favorite brand of Miter saw Blade? I hate my current blade and need some advice on selecting a new one.August 25, 2013 at 8:08 pm #39153
a lot depends on the type of saw, I have several Freud that I like and also a couple of Bosch.
Hook angles make a lot of difference whether you are on a fixed or sliding saw.August 25, 2013 at 8:43 pm #39161
I run a 12″ fixed dual compound Hitachi C12FDHAugust 25, 2013 at 8:48 pm #39162
what are you using for a blade now?August 25, 2013 at 9:08 pm #39163
Mainly rough cutting 2×4. For finish work I change out the blade.August 26, 2013 at 7:37 am #39190
Anxious to try out the DareDevil blades that were recently posted up here. I imagine they will be better than the dewalt blades i have loaded up.August 26, 2013 at 7:48 am #39194
I am also curious to see how well the daredevil miter blade will perform.August 27, 2013 at 5:46 am #39295supimeisterPro
Do any of you guys use 10″ blades on both your table saw and miter saw?

Unfortunately I am still Table-saw-less.August 27, 2013 at 7:33 am #39310
Still havent pulled the trigger on a table saw yet but i would like to have a diff blade for each when the time comes.August 27, 2013 at 9:39 am #39555
To have the space for every tool I wanted I think I would have to build a pole barn. That’s why I just use a circ with a rip fence.August 27, 2013 at 1:30 pm #39623jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
8 years ago i had a 10 ” hitachi mitre saw. i would use the same 50 tooth blades on it and my table saw,
i hvent used a dewalt miter saw blade in quite some time.. their throw away blades anyway. once their dull they get tossed they cant be resharpened like the freud ones can
heres a tip, dont fart in a space suitAugust 27, 2013 at 2:32 pm #39636
I was not familiar with Freud blades until I joined this forum. They seem pretty excellent.
Jeff, would you actually sharpen your Freud of send it off to someone to do?August 27, 2013 at 2:40 pm #39639
How much does it cost on average to have someone sharpen them? And who would do it?August 27, 2013 at 3:12 pm #39642
I have no clue nick, I hope someone is able to shed some light on this murky topic.August 27, 2013 at 3:28 pm #39643jkirkModeratorhalifax, nova scotia
jason, i do have to get my blades sent out. carbide blades require special machinery to be sharpened. there is one shop in town that does it but they do a horrible job of it. i just take my blades to my lumberyard and they send them out of province

Thanks for the insight Jeff, I don’t know if I use my blades enough to warrant that but its a great option to have.August 27, 2013 at 5:19 pm #39648
We have all our10″ & 12″ blades sharpened. There is an old guy on town that does it and does a pretty good job of it. An 80 tooth carbide is about 20 bucks. They charge by the tooth.
Circular saw blades get so beat up they get thrown.August 28, 2013 at 9:46 am #39691
Kurt, do you only sharpen the Freud blades? Or do you sharpen all of your blades?August 28, 2013 at 10:28 am #39698cranbrook2ProBelgrave, Ontario , Canada
I like using Diablo blades from Freud, They are extremely sharp and last a very long time .
