  • Miter Saw Blades

    Anyone know of better blades, as I have just tried a Freud Dibold 96 tooth blade on my new Ridgid 12" sliding miter saw, and it died in less than 4 hours of use. I had paid $100.00 for the blade, as it was recommended on the label for what I was cutting. There has to be better blades out there ? I can't find any Ridgid blades recommended for Aluminum. I am only getting about 400 cuts before the blade losses its sharpness, this is in 1" x 3" x 1/8" tubing. At this rate I will make Freud a lot of money (2 blades a day). I have never had a blade sharpened that worked right after, as I need a good surface finish on the product.

        $100 is pretty expensive for a Diablo blade...Freud's Industrial series like Badger Dave suggested should serve a bit better. Check Amazon for a triple chip grind "non-ferrous" metal blade. Their "BLDPROMO" code will save 20% off a decent price to start with.

        Ebay may have some deals too. Get a couple and have them resharpened as needed.

          Is the blade dulling or is the aluminum galling onto the blade? If it is galling onto the blade, the lubricant is not sufficient or the feed speed is too high. A different blade will not solve either problem.

              Checked out the links, and either can't get them shipped to me (in Canada) or if they do they want over $40.00 for shipping ($35.00 + $5.00 per lb.).

              Anybody know a source for Freud Industrial blades in Canada. Thanks
