I m going to be burned at the stake for saying this, but the BEST circular saw blade I have ever had over the past 55 years of using a table saw is the one I bought at Harbor Freight. This is it:

It is used on my $4,000 Austrian-made Hammer 48” x 48” sliding table saw (12” blade size). I had Forrest Blades special punch the arbor hole to fit). There is a 10” blade available. Its a long story how I came to use this blade, but this is for another time.

I have a HF dado set and it cuts just as well as my two other more expensive sets. It’s not the most expensive blades or tools that do the best work. It’s the skill of the person using the tools. Woodworking craftsmen a long time ago used pretty primitive tools. Some made their own from raw steel. They knew how to make them, how to sharpen them and how to use them. I sharpen my own blades because I know how. I learned how as part of my education.
