saw blades

My wife bought me some new saw blades for fathers day. She got me a 7-1/4" and a 10" for a circular saw. The 10" was supposed to be for my table saw. So my question is can the 10" circular saw blade be used in my table saw. Or should I take it back.

Kind of depends on your table saw. In short, I'd say it's likely just fine. read more on the subject / your table saw / google some stuff

10" circular saw blade? .... unlikely

A 10" blade would be very unusual on a circular saw, but Milwaukee makes one for sure. The number and type of teeth should be written on the blade. It may be something like 28 T, 40 T or 60T... Is the blade made for ripping or general purpose? http://www.ebay.com/itm/48-40-4170-M...item46071522d8
The blade above is a 10 1/4" diameter. This may not fit on a standard table saw which may be limited to 10" blades only. The extra 1/8" measured on the radius, could rub on the mechanism at some point, so be very careful.


Some woodworkers routinely use the smaller 7 1/4" blades because they are so much cheaper, and will still cut 3/4" and 1" thick material on the table saw. Wood is still wood and the blade don't care where it's being used....circ saw or table saw. The only factor would be the RPMs may be greater on a circ saw, but it will still work OK on the table saw.

Can you post a photo of the blade or package?

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)

Oh Oh

You have the worst possible blade, as far as modern, fast cutting, carbide tipped blades go. That blade is NOT carbide tipped, and is meant for plywood only. It will need sharpening much sooner since it is just high speed steel.
I would return it and get a carbide tipped blade with either 40 or 50 teeth, not 200.
A good blade at a reasonable price is the Freud Diablo from Home Depot or Amazon, about $30.00. http://www.amazon.com/D1040X-Diablo-10-Inch-40-Tooth-PermaShield/dp/B00008WQ2X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372578214&sr=8-1&keywords=Freud+Diablo+1040

I do have the Diablo blades I use in the table saw and chop saw. I have 2 40 tooth and 2 60 tooth. I just wasn't too sure about the blade my wife got. Thanks for the assistance.

Nice of her to buy them for you, but this is why I do not buy my wifes makeup, lol. Tell her to get you a certificate next time. I would definitely return that 10" and get a carbide suitable for your cutting needs.

Bless her kind heart she is trying and I see it no different than a shirt that doesn't fit and it's exchanged for one that does fit.

It's a great gesture on her part, but is a pretty poor blade. If it wasn't a lot of money, I'd consider keeping it around to give her the illusion that you're using it....maybe put it on a CMS or keep it for junk ply cuts. Then I'd try to a sneak in a $30 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00008WQ2X/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p60_d1_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=03QCK0VZNSWDBKJPTDJP&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846 or http://www.ebay.com/itm/110964839674?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 blade for my TS, or just tell it that you need different blades for different materials.
