    What is your favorite brand of Miter saw Blade? I hate my current blade and need some advice on selecting a new one.

    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.

    Mainly rough cutting 2×4. For finish work I change out the blade.

    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.

    I am also curious to see how well the daredevil miter blade will perform.

    Do any of you guys use 10″ blades on both your table saw and miter saw?

    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.

    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?

    How much does it cost on average to have someone sharpen them? And who would do it?

    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

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    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.

    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.

    Kurt, do you only sharpen the Freud blades? Or do you sharpen all of your blades?

    I like using Diablo blades from Freud, They are extremely sharp and last a very long time .
