Always use a negative hook saw blade for sawing on a radial saw. Table saw blades have a positive tooth hook angle. On a radial saw this can cause the saw to grab and shoot forward. Unsafe! What s a negative angle? If you draw a line from the center to the tooth, a positive has the tooth leaning forward from the line. A negative leans backward.

Thanks for sharing Harryn! I’m already aware of that fact and have my saw set up accordingly. Thank you for sharing, as then anyone else who views this thread will be made aware. Thanks for looking out for my safety! :-)
