I’m considering buying a general purpose Woodworker II 10 inch standard kerf blade for my table saw. Anyone know of the best place to get one price-wise?

Maybe Amazon if you have prime.

They call it a general purpose but it’ll crosscut like a champ.

I think after some research I’m going to go with the Freud fusion thin kerf since my saw only has 1.5hp and its half the cost

I have purchased a few forrest blades from silvers mill or slavers mill. whatever, they are in NY. Usually sale price for WWII 40 tooth is $105ish. free shipping and no sales tax. beat that, amazon! you cant!

get the thin kerf WWII. I loved that blade on my 1.5hp contractor saw.

it is slivers mill. $107 and free shipping for your 40tooth thin kerf blade. The rip blade is cheap cheap for $75. Im considering buying that one now… I am too lazy to switch blades though, so I rock a WWII 40 tooth blade. Only comes out for sharpening and cleaning.

I get them locally from Coastal Tool for the same price as all of the typical discounters.

However, I never have a problem paying slightly more from my two local guys, as I like having local guys to visit.

Not a bad move IMO. With the money saved, invest in a decent TK 24T ripper like the LU87.

I think that despite a lot of back and forth I’m going to try the Freud fusion TK. My saw only has 1.5hp so I’m drawn to the thin kerf blades and it’s half the cost. I can use the extra cash to get some other things I need around the shop.
