Can’t comment on the equipment , but you need to do something about all that sawdust! I see that much laying around, and all I see is a health risk.

It’s hard to really tell what’s going on through audio on the video. It’d be best to compare the 40T to 40T….the gullets size is very different going from 60T to 40T. The stabilizer adds weight and changes what your saw is dealing with too….remove the disc and compare similar number of teeth, and I think you’d have a better comparison. Right now it’s apples to oranges.

Yeah I see what you are sawing knotscott, I guess for me that would be a better blade to blade comparison, I guess I was mainly comparing before and after with my cuts from my tablesaw. Perhaps I was misleading and I apologize for that.

BTimmons, I appreciate the concern, although I am just finishing up a rather large project and it is difficult for me to keep my shop dust free. For short term I will usually sweep it up into piles out of my way so I am not always kicking it up. As you can see in my picture I normally wear a respirator. I also wish I had the area/ability to have a dust collection system but in my current living situation it is not permitted. Typically I work with the garage door open so that helps. I am in the medical imaging field and I am aware of what dust in your lungs (pneumoconiosis) can cause and everybody should really be cautious about it. I also hope that everyone takes wood dust and air control seriously.
