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.
No announcement yet.
