Favorite Blade For 10" Slidding Miter Saw?


I have been using a Freud LU91M010 for several years and am pretty happy with it. Its a 60 tooth, 5 degree negative hook and I use a Hitachi. I am always looking for something better and am curious as to what other guys favorite blades are.

I like the "Red" ones pretty good.
I also use a Freud both for my Hitachi's a 10" and the 8.5" slider
I use DeWalt blades for my DeWalt saws 12"

I like the thin cerf Diablo blades from freud, also use the avanti for readily available blades, but for my shop(the saws that dont see the field), cant go wrong with forrester

Re: Favorite Blade For 10" Slidding Miter Saw?


Depends on what i am doing
General purpose i use a diablo (which is a freud same as avanti)
Trim carpentry i use an amana, forrest, or ridge carbide (though i would stay away from the amanas, they dont last as long)

Freud ubber Allus :}:} Amana I like also, SADLY tho Freud was bought by Bosch :{:{:{ Now we have to see if they mess it up.
