yet another saw blade post
Ok, I think i'm ready to upgrade my Mak 10" SCMS blade- its the factory 70t. I was seriously considering a Forrest Duraline thin kerf. as you know, it has a 40 degree HiATB and a 5 degree hook. The Chopmaster has 30 Degree ATB+R and a negative 5 degree hook.
I like the hi atb part of the duraline, as i would be cutting melamine and such... but isn't 30 degree pretty high too? What is the normal angle on ATB blades? Which of these two blades is more versatile- I won't have the luxury of multiple blades for specific purposes- so, mainly trim work, shelves... hard woods, MDF...
What other brands/specific models are comparable or worth considering?
