I use a Freud 24t rip blade also and have no problems with Purple Heart 2”
A world of difference vs the Freud combo blade I had before. Would never buy a combo blade again.

I also have my blade trailing edge angled just very very slightly away from the fence so the wood does not contact the trailing edge and
Less chance of burn marks there.

Freud makes a 24 tooth Diablo rip blade that does a great job (D1024X). It s amazing how much difference that will make.
