Haven’t used a thin kerf blade before so I purchased the 7 1/4” Freud Diablo Demo Demon Circular Saw blade for $15 from Home Depot just to see what all the hype is about thin kerf blades. What a difference and the price is right.

Noticed that my saw sounds different and stops faster. There is significantly less dust.

The saw feels more powerful when I’m cutting. The kerf is about 1/16” and the wood is ash.
The blade stands at 1 3/4” when raised at it’s highest.

Got an L bracket from Home Depot that I will use as a splitter.
It is about the same thickess as the blade.

Hope to get a good 10” thin kerf blade someday.

I would be a little careful when using this item on the tablesaw. This one is designed for demolition work for contractors using a handheld circular saw. It can cut through non-ferrous metals and nails the thin metals that usually destroy wood blades. The difference in sound you hear is probably attributed to the RPM change due to the blade being smaller than the usual 10 inch model. From what I read on the HD website, this would be a great blade for framing work and cutting out new openings for doors and windows. When you get one of the thin kerfs designed for the larger saw, you will definitely have an awesome demolition blade for your circular
