Blade "singing"

I bought 2 Dewalt 60 tooth blades, put one on the TS and one on the RAS..... They both sing, and in the same key, when running free....

Are these safe to use ?? They both cut very well....

Photo?

Some blades have the laser cut "?" mark to reduce noise. Does yours?

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

What tune do they sing? Some blades are just loud. The quietest blade I've ever used was a Freud teflon coated blade. The loudest was Avanti 32 tooth. As long as you wear some hearing protection they are safe to use.

Are they from the DW "Construction" series or the DW "Precision Trim" series? The two lines are very different, and very literally named, so if you're looking for a wwing blade, and have the Construction series, I'd return it regardless of the noise.

They are Construction series.... I have a 12 inch 80 tooth in my chop saw, and that's quiet....
Returning them isn't an option as I've used them for some time.....
What are the benefits of Precision Trim over this one....?? Other than noise.....

Yep

Some blades can sing, the others haven't learned how yet. Most are sopranos. Bandsaw blade have a deep bass when they're not tightened.

Much better cut quality, better carbide holds an edge longer, bigger teeth are worth having sharpened, and it should spin truer. It's just a better blade for woodworking all around...more on par with the Freud Diablo's, Irwin Marples, CMT ITK Plus, etc.

I use Diablos, and they are excellent. They're Italian, and they sing Sinatra all the time, though.

Cheers,
Roger

Before I knew any better I bought an avanti crosscut blade from home depot. It made such a high pitched sound when just running in the table saw that my dog who always just lays on the floor while im in the shop got up and left. I never even tried cutting anything with on the table saw. Took it to work and put it on my scms and all it did was burn it's way thru 2x6

pit bulls rock!
