    Re: what blade

    if you are just doing general stuff at the moment i would go back to home depot and grab the "2pack" of dewalt blades it has a 30 and 60 tooth blade i belive and i think the price is about $40-50 (u.s. of couse) but it is a real nice starter blade set.

        Re: what blade

        On the advice of some othere here I purchased the Freud LU84R011 combo blade and have been quite happy with it. I unfortunately was too lazy to take it out when trying to rip a bevel down a cuple of 2x6 for my neighbor to frame his roof and it threw some teeth. Mostly due to his inexperience with the saw, not holding the wood straight and going too fast I believe. I have already bought another and think it is a great combo blade.
        Still enjoying all 10 fingers!

                Hell must have frozen over today because I didn't think I'd see the day when I would say, the OEM blade that came with your saw will do just fine for general construction type work. When the end result cut quality doesn't really matter or come into play the OEM blade is what I usually use. It also puts my mind a little bit at ease knowing that I don't have to worry about trashing my more expensive blades on something hidden in the wood.

                When you do get around to making some quality pieces a better quality blade will be a must. The Freud LU84 as others mentioned is one, Forrest WWII, Ridge Carbide(no relation to Ridgid), and CMT are a few more.

                I don't mean to steal his thunder but here is a blade rating chart that was compiled by Hewood, who is a member of this forum who really knows his stuff when it comes to blades.

                  Thanks BadgerDave & Hewood! That's a very useful chart. It's a keeper for me!

                    If I were in your shoes, I'd get a Leitz 24T TK ripper (or 2), and a Freud LU88R010. Great compliment to each other and a great match for your saw. Use the stock blade for construction grade stuff and questionable lumber, use the LU88 for most hardwood cuts, and use your ripper when doing bulk or thick rips.

                    The Leitz deal is smokin...$10 each plus ~ $7-$9 shipping, add a 2nd one and the shipping goes up very little. The blade is great, cheap, and his service is excellent. 10" z24 FLAT TOP fast rip thin kerf #011 $ $10 each (figure 1 for ~ $18 and 2 for ~ $26 shipped)
                    Leitz clearance

                    The Frued LU88R010 is a really nice blade for all around use in furniture grade cuts. I realize it's listed as a crosscut blade, which it'll do nicely, but it has a steep 15 degree hook angle that allows it to rip well to ~ 6/4" in most materials. It'll hang with the best of them in cut quality and versatility for about half the cost....~ $36 shipped after 20% instant rebate. Enter promotional code 2OOFFMAY at checkout to get an extra 20% discount LU88 from Amazon

                    Sorry Smelly...forgot you were in Canada, so scratch the Amazon deal but you might find one locally in the $50 range. Holbren has some great prices on the Tenryu and Ridge Carbide blades and I believe he'll ship up north...he's got the Tenryu RS25540 for $30 US...great value, nice blade. Lowes is now carrying the Delta 36-7657, which is the famed DeWalt DW7657 40 toofer with a Delta wrapper on it...$40 here, but is only available in full kerf. You might find the Ridgid Titanium R1050C at HD up there...shoud be a decent blade for the money....made by Freud to similar standards as their Diablo and Avanti lines. You can also add the Infinity ComboMax TK to my recommended list....top shelf blades that sometimes go on sale. I'd still get ahold of Mike Jackson for a Leitz ripper....limited supply type offer.

                      I've only tried three blades on my 3650: The original was great when sharp but only held an edge moderately well. The Rigid 60 tooth was a step up from the original blade - no complaints. The Freud 60 and 40 tooth models are great and have held up the best. I had the 60 tooth model (sorry, no # in my head) throw a tooth and I e-mailed them to warn that that model had an issue. They wrote back quickly and had me send it back for a replacement. Darn good service and polite. I know that's not much help but every little bit helps - especially the chart above.
                      Later,
