Synopsis: Michael Standish's tests of 23 industrial-grade, carbide-tipped 10-in.sawblades persuaded him to reconsider using separate blades to rip and crosscut.His best bet, he says, is an all-purpose blade with an identical backup blade to avoid sharpening downtime.
In this article, he covers blade basics and shares his methods of testing, notes on each blade, and his comments on each.He found that good blades start with a good plate, and good tensioning helps it run true.
Blades have two possible tooth patterns, alternate top bevel and alternate top bevel and raker.And their geometry affects the cut.Thin-kerf blades use less power.Standish offers information on brazing and carbide.
A large chart details the blades' individual features and comparisons...
