saw blade question


http://www.homedepot.com/p/202021690


does it look like this blade will make smooth cuts in plywood and crosscuts in 1x3 spruce/pine ?
I'm more concerned about getting smooth crosscuts in the pine.

That is a cross cutting blade so you should be fine with that---I assume that will be in a hand held circular saw----if so---set the soul plate for a cut only 1/4" deeper than the wood to be cut--

Leaving the blade all the way down causes more tear out----

It appears the hook angle may be about 10° and for smooth cross cutting I'd rather see that angle closer to 0° , but for that price I doubt you'll find a zero hook blade.

So go ahead and try it and if it doesn't work out you aren't out much money and can use it to cut old barn wood etc.

I just love spending other people's money.

Do you have a miter saw? If not, now might be the time to buy one if you have a lot of 1 x 3 to cut. I have a Makita LS1013 Slide Compound, and I absolutely love it.

saw blade question


that blade will work fine.. just dont rush your cuts through the material or it will splinter.

i use a 40 tooth freud diablo blade on my circ saw for breaking down sheets of good two side plywood all the time without issue.

Buy a Swanson speed square while you are there. The small one. You will love it.

Here is a video on some of the uses of a speed square.

Using it as a saw guide will give you much better cuts.

Hey! Had a stroke a little over a year ago, and the doctor said to stay away from forums. That's good advice for the frustrating Contractor Talk forum, but this one keeps drawing me back.
