Posted on Never used a blade dampener before but interested. Can they be used on miter saws as well?

For years I have never needed a stiffner on carbide tooth blades as the width of the carbide teeth means the steel blade body never rubs against the wood causing it to generate heat and warp. However in the “olden” days before carbide teeth (I’m a old codger) the teeth of the steel blade were offset slightly to each side to widen the kerf to solve the blade rubbing problem (hand saws too). But you still could get enough of the problem to warrant a blade stiffner to control the problem. A stiffner does limit the depth of the cut though.
