I’m surprised to be placing a negative review since Freud has a great reputation, but my own experience with this pricey blade has been disappointing. It has struggled to rip both cherry and especially hard maple on my Ridgid table saw, either burning the wood if I feed too slow or stopping altogether If I feed too quickly. Taking breaks between cuts to allow the blade to cool doesn’t help much. On the plus side, it does make very thin and often smooth - if burned - cuts. I just went back to a Ridgid blade which eats more wood but at least cuts with little or no burning and never choking the motor.
Great blade and great customer service
The claims in the ads and the reviews of this blade are all true. With a properly tuned saw this blade leaves a polished kerf that you only sand because that is what you are supposed to do. All that said, the next best thing is the Freud company and their outstanding customer service. My three year old blade, purchased at Woodcraft in Raleigh NC, developed a chipped tooth with a crack. I called their Customer Service unit in High Point NC and was told to send in my blade and they would take care of it. I sent in my blade and was expecting a repaired blade to be returned. Yesterday, I received a brand-new-in-the-package blade. Other companies could learn a lesson here. These people have a great product and back it up with the same in Customer Service.
New level of work
This blade has made the biggest impact on my work of all the tools I use. I have an old contractor Rockwell Delta saw I installed a Delta/Bessmeyer fence. Correctly alligned, this combination allows perfect polished edges for jointing rip or cross cut. I use my jointer far less now. Quiet, clean, polished cut surfaces its still performing well after some hard use in oak, walnut, plywood, and hardboard. I did clean the blade as it had started to burn some in long rip cuts much over 3/4 inch which returned it to its original performance. Inspecting the teeth while cleaning - they look like brand new yet.
Really disappointed. Requested as xmas gift, since I don't normally spend this much for a blade. Rips fine with little or no tearout. Cross cutting in soft wood leaves a damaged edge. Replaced with $29.95 blade half way through current side table project.
Added to my Freud collection
Clean consistent cuts ready for glue-up. Made laminated cutting board. Ready to step into re-sawing- will precut before band sawing.
I never thought I would purchase a blade for this price but I should have done this years ago. As listed, "a thin kerf, less weight, and less strain on low horsepowered machine," they were right. I have a Shopsmith and this was ideal for this machine. This blade cut right through the pieces like it was warm butter. I plan to order another for my radial arm saw. A truely great saw blade!!!
