Saw blade swap

Is there any reason I can't move my 70T 10" TS blade to a compound mitre saw for cross cuts? I'm borrowing a friends saw to make cuts for my first set of drawers and I don't have a good enough TS set up to ensure they are square.

thanks

As long as it's not a 8" Miter Saw ... Yeah that would work fine. I suppose the arbor diameters would have to match also.

I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks.

If your friend has a sliding compound miter saw then it probably wouldn't be a good idea. If on the other hand it's a regular miter saw then swap away.

sure you can swap them out. I have swapped myTS blade out to my Bosch 10 inch slider with excellent results.

What is the difference?

I have not noticed any of the blades in the store being marked for different types of saws.

George - A sliding CMS and a RAS should really have a blade with a low to negative hook angle to prevent self feeding of the piece. Not as big a deal with a non-sliding CMS, and actually desirable with a TS.

Steep positive hook:


Here's a link to DeKalb Saw that shows and explains positive and negative hook angle.

Knotscott,I've never thought about tooth angle before,and I haven't seen a supplier label a blade for a specific type of saw.What you said certainly makes sense.But I've always swapped blades from my RAS and TS some times the RAS would self feed if I wasn't offering more resistance I never considered tooth angle.We do learn something every day. Thanks for posting that tip, Rick
