Saw blade 101 with Rockler

August 12, 20141 Comment

Are you ever confused about which saw blade is the right one for your table saw or miter saw? With all the different tooth configurations, hook angles, or thin kerf versus wide it gets confusing right out-of-the-gate.

Personally I’m a fan of a 40 tooth combo blade on my table saw and preferably a 60 to 80 tooth blade on my miter saw. But even after using those styles for years I still look at all the blades on the market and find myself wondering if I could be using something different?

Because understanding and then choosing the right saw blade can be so difficult if you’re not already familiar with them, the folks over at Rockler posted a nice tutorial earlier this year.

Saw Blades 101 is an easy to understand guide and glossary of the most frequent terms you’ll run into when looking for the right saw blade for the task and tool you have.

The folks at Rockler have done a great job of breaking down the basics and helping you understand the terms you’ll see and hopefully help you make the right decision with the least amount of confusion.

My only question is, where was this when I started woodworking?
