DeWalt - DW7296PT 12 In. 96T Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Saw Blade (Rating: 5)

I was looking around for a new blade for my DW718 SCMS and I was wondering around Lowes and spotted this beaut. So I took it home and put it to the test. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was when cutting through the wood. It leaves an incredibly smooth and clean cut. It cut perfect miters on hard maple in the first pass. It says it cuts nonferrous metals so I cut some copper tubing and it made a nice smooth cut leaving little tear out but you better wear eye protection. Then I cut some Bloodwood, 1/4 oak ply, more maple, and poplar, all were left with a nice smooth cut and very little if any tear out.

So far it seems to be quite accurate and leaves a nice smooth finish. This is an excellent blade for woodworking purposes. It was about 66 bones so not cheep but well worth the damage to the wallet.
