Freud, CMT, Forrest......
I have a few Diablo brand blades for my TS, and want to upgrade 3, maybe 4 of my blades.
I have a 24t rip blade, 50t combo, 60t finish, those are my most common use blades. Now I do have the Freud box joint dado set, and the Diablo dado set, I end up using the box joint dado for more common things like rabbits, and 1/2" or smaller dados.
Oh, saw is a ridgid r4512.
I've thought about full kerf blades, so when I upgrade to a "forever" saw I have the blades for it.
How is CMT?, which Forrest should I go with?, should I run all 3 of those common blades Forrest?.
Material I commonly cut.
Walnut, ash, oak, pecan, cherry, maple, hickory, cedar, mahogany
Average large cut is about 2"-2 1/2" depending on how thick of material o need to mill.
All I know is that it is time for me to upgrade my blades to "forever" blades. The 150.00 cost of a Forrest blade no longer scares my wife, she does understand that you do get what you pay for.

It's all fun and games until someone loses the Walnut.
