Wondering what the opinions are on a table saw blade- teeth, brand, etc.

I use mine to cut hardwoods 90% of the time. Ripping mostly, and made a crosscut sled, so now some crosscuts.

Majority of the time I’m making cuts for cutting boards as I make and sell them. So I would like as smooth a cut I can get while being able to handle the rip cuts for milling down pieces.

So what are your suggestions?

Waiting for knotscott to pop in and give everyone the straight dope.

I got a Delta 35-7657 on his recommendation (for $30 shipped) and it’s been a fantastic value for the money.

Every “combination” blade you buy is going to be a compromise, no matter how much it cost. I use one (Freud Premium Fusion) a majority of the time convenience sake. If the crosscut has to be very smooth and with no splintering, I will put on one of my crosscut blades, depending on the material. If I am ripping lots of construction lumber, I will put on an aggressive rip blade for the enhanced performance. If I am ripping edges that are going to be glued up directly, I will use a glue line rip blade.

All the US made blades have a good reputation. The Italian blades used to be great but I’ve had issues with Freud. Taiwan makes some nice blades.

I use an Amana finish blade. Works great for me.

Freud LU83R010 50T combo works for me. $60 and gives glue line & polished cuts on jatoba.
