Yesterday I watched a video by Chuck Bender Acantuscarver on making string inlays. He was using a Freud Diablo saw blade 7 1/4” on his 10” table saw.

Today I was walking through Big Orange and I spied the blades hanging on a display rack. Man, were they thin kerf. I checked their web site and they are less than 1/16” thick.

The blades were about 10-15 bucks depending on the blade that you bought.

Then I walked by the Tool Crib and they had a display of the 24 tooth blades. 2 blades for the price of 1. So I bought a set, price $9.95. I’m going to give them a try on cutting some wood at the Toy Workshop and see how smooth this blade cuts. I might even have to bring my Grizzly tablesaw out of storage to give them a try.

The blade is D0724P. Not found on Freud web site, but matches up to the D0724X on their site.

Chuck was using a 40 tooth blade, the ones that I bought on special were 24 tooth.

Outstanding tip, thank you! I usually buy two-packs, one for the table, one for the radial arm. I’ve got Forrests, but at my skill level, the Diablo is more than sufficient, and the price is right:)

I get super clean cuts with CS now!

Amazing blades! And a THIN Kerf too!

thanks for the tip Karson I always enjoy your post
I like these blades a lot, cant beat the price.

also i keep a 7 1\4” in my 10 table saw most of the time. and move up in size as the job calls for it
it dose every thing better then the 10” and i feel its safe
and it pulls less power.
I got this tip here at LJ’s. just passing it on.

I never thought of using it in the TS…

I’d have to make another zero clearance board… No problem… simple to do…

I’ve got to remember to try this… Sounds good!

Thank you.
