I got a Freud Diablo 1024 table saw rip blade for Christmas, as per my asking for it, and I cannot wait to try it. It looks like a normal, full kerf blade but the package says thin kerf on it. Looks like 1/8 to me. I put a Freud Diablo thin rip blade on my circular saw and it's so nice I can't even imagine a better one. It looks less than 1/16 wide. That's the reason I wanted the 1024 for my table saw. Aside from it being thicker than I thought it would have been, I'm looking forward to trying it.
EDIT -- I just measured its tooth width and the best I could see it looks about 7/64. I can clearly see it's over 3/32 by about 1/2 way to the full 1/8 mark. That doesn't seem to be thin kerf to me. If so, then I guess every saw I have has a thin kerf blade on it. My Kobalt miter saw has a 3/32 blade on it.
