Fiskars Precision Handsaw

Fiskars Precision Handsaw

While shopping at Michael’s Craft Store for some resin tints, I found this little saw. Made by Fiskars, a brand I associate with good quality scissors, I bought the saw, it was only about $8 CDN. I got a chance to use it right away on some pegged joints, and it was crazy sharp!! A very slight set to the teeth made it not suitable for flush cuts, but when pre-cutting dowels it would only take a few strokes to go through. It has about 16 TPI, hardened like some typical toolbox saws...

Dado Master Stacks Up Against the Best (and Sawstop Approved)

Dado Master Stacks Up Against the Best (and Sawstop Approved)

I like to use a dado blade for cutting hardwood joinery like tenons and half-lap joints. Most dado blades I’ve used do a good job at cutting grooves in plywood. Likewise, this set does a great job in plywood and sheet goods. To me though, the true test of a dado blade is how it tackles hardwood joinery. With the Dado Master you get a crisp, clean shoulder with no exit tearout. Even in tricky woods like white oak it performed admirably. When cutting wide tenons that require multi...

My first experience with cutting dados was on an ancient table saw (no dust collection) using a cheap wobble blade. It scared me off dados for about five years. My second experience cutting dados was with a router and a cheap edge guide. They were mostly straight. I decided it was time to add some proper dado cutting ability to my shop. I had had very good experience with Forrest blades in the past so I purchased their Dado King. I purchased the 8 inch set only to find out it was not compatib...

I have been impressed and could not be happier with this blade’s performance and results. It cuts veneers with a very smooth finish.

When you need splinter-free cuts in plywood

When you need splinter-free cuts in plywood

I have finally outgrown my Diablo Combination blade and started purchasing more high-end saw blades. This is my second Ridge Carbide blade. I was very impressed with my first Ridge Carbide blade after a recommendation by Stumpy Nubs, that I gave this a shot without any reviews. This is an 80-tooth ATB blade with a full 1/8” kerf. So far I couldn’t be happier. I just finished created a stand/cabinet for my drill press, using oak Purebond plywood, so I’ve cut approximat...

First Try of Freud Premier Fusion General Purpose Blade

First Try of Freud Premier Fusion General Purpose Blade

03-13-2018 03:24 AM by BrockF | 11 comments »

For my ongoing house renovation project I have A LOT of custom trim to do, including all the door and window casings. I chose poplar instead of pine because it machines so well. Additionally I have a lot of cabinetry work to do using maple. The combination blade on my table saw is about ten years old and I started thinking about replacing it. While at my local Rockler store in Schaumburg, Illinois, I asked the associate his opinion on the new fusion blades. I never spent more than $40 o...

Amana PR1040C Exceeds All Expectations

Amana PR1040C Exceeds All Expectations

10-26-2017 03:50 PM by GraceAndDrew | 14 comments »

I have to ask for forgiveness…when I opened the package for my new Amana PR1040C saw blade I took the Lord’s name in vain and said several curse words. To the best of my memory I said something like, “Je$%^ H. Chr#$! Look at this big mo&$r fu#%r!” You need a little back story for this review. I hate to admit it in public but I use a jobsite table saw. There, I said it. But, with all sorts of jigs and a few Incra products I make it work for me and I usually don&#...

Best Miter Saw Blade?

Best Miter Saw Blade?

08-07-2017 07:15 PM by HassanMirza | 6 comments »

Hello Everyone, Couple of Months ago I had a chance to get to visit the W.D Quinn Blade Saw Co, Which I wrote a review about. Where I picked up two blades one for the table saw (10 inch) and one for the Miter saw (12 inch). This review is about the Miter saw Blade since I have been using this blade for a couple of months now I feel I can write and honest and proper review. First off the bat the blade has huge carbide teeth so that means it can be resharpened many times. But its not abo...

Review of TS2000 full kerf 40-tooth blade

Review of TS2000 full kerf 40-tooth blade

07-14-2017 11:23 PM by oldbrowndog | 10 comments »

I recently upgraded the saw blade on my table saw to the 40-tooth TS2000 full kerf blade from Ridge Carbide. The paragraphs below share my detailed review of this blade, but the TL;DR version is that it’s an excellent blade particularly for box joints because it has 8 raker teeth. This was the deciding factor for me in purchasing the TS2000 over the Forrest WWII. I later found out that there is an ATBR version of the WWII, but it sells for almost double what I paid for the TS2000. It ...
