    Colt router is on my radar. Lots of piggies still to go.
    I needed a new 10″ blade for my Unisaw so I pulled the trigger this week. 50T full kerf combination blade sold by Popular Tools out of San Antonio. My sharpening guy recommended it. $78 CDN
    Mounted it last night and did a couple of test cuts; I like it a lot! Zero tear out crosscutting oak and smooth rips.

    I had never heard of the brand before. Anyone have any experience with it?

    BE the change you want to see.

    No, the saw was a gift. Ron got it at an incredible price and gave it to me for helping him on his building. So I redeemed some points and got the L-boxx for it.

    Well put an order in for the GCM12SD and a new 10″ blade for my tired table saw.

    Nice redemption Frank. What blade did you request?

    @RonW,
    I redeemed for <strong class=”d4pbbc-bold”>DCB1060 10 In. 60 Tooth Daredevil™ Table and Miter Saw Blade Fine Finish.

    Not sure yet if I will put it on my table saw or my miter.

    i was looking at Bosch’s Table Saw Blades today because my current one is not the sharpest anymore. struggles to rip 2x4s.

    im thinking about getting 2x 10″ 24T blades.

    does anyone know if they last long or if they are compatible to Freud?

    They both have the same parent company but I’m sure you knew that. My guess they are made at the same plant.

    Yes Sir.
    Just saying because when i looked at the 24T & 40T blades. freud is 4-5 bucks more than a bosch blade.

    Peter,
    I took a quick look around the site. I like the spec sheets on the saws, shows all pertinent info one would need.

    ThanX @smallerstick

    I hate to say it, Kevin, but about the time I was restoring the Unisaw, I bought a Dewalt 2 pack fo chop saw blades; one went in the chop saw and the other went into the Unisaw. I had some other blades sharpened recently but just didn’t bother to change out the Dewalt blade.

    I wish I had now but hindsight = 20-20

    Working with some clear pine this morning and it is a thing of beauty! Effortless rips! Clean crosscuts! Push it through as fast as I like.

    All this talk about routers has got me thinking of the MRC23EVSK with the RA1181.
    Be a while for me to reach that goal.

    I think if your going to put one in a table I would want the 1617 over the 23.

    @RonW,
    Why the 1617? Is there that much of a difference between them?

    The MR23 has switch on the handle of base, so wouldn’t work in your own router lift (but you could jerry rig something up, there’s a video of a guy doing it somewhere).

    I agree for the table use only the 1617 is the option to choose. You will not notice the slight loss in power. Then use the point difference to add a router bit

    Bad Peter! Not supposed to use the same blades in TS as Miter saws. Naughty Peter! 😉

    Alright, I’m starting to get a better handle on the two differences and where each would be best suited.

    ahh i’ve been debating on getting a jessem router table lift and was thinking of which router would fit in it the best. I’ve been jumping from either the bosch router table or should i just build one with the jessem lift.

    If you can adjust cutter depth on the Bosch table with the 1617 router, why spend a few hundred on a Jessem?

    Bang bang! I just pulled the trigger on 1617 router kit and the dust chute for it!!! Can’t wait to use it after all the positive reviews. I plan on getting the table ASAP. 🙂
