I very rarely take the time to review products I purchase but this one is worthy of my time. For the last few years I have used exclusively Freud blades and this one exceeds all others. I installed this on my 3hp cabinet saw because the combination blade I normally use was struggling to rip 6/4+ thick hardwoods. I elected for the thin kerf blade primarily to cut down on material waste. In combination with a well aligned fence and well waxed table, this blade cuts like a laser. There is absolutely no resistance to feeding and it is whisper quiet. Productivity is greatly increased because the finish is superb even at high feed speeds. The cut edge looks every bit as good as a jointed edge, even if you break a cardinal rule of woodworking and pause feeding momentarily to adjust your grip (no burn marks or witness marks from the blade). If i could give this product 10 stars I would.

Both of my old combination blades had begun to leave burn marks and it was becoming harder to push hardwood through the blade. I decided, after some research, to try the Freud LM75R010 30 tooth Glue Line Rip blade. I wanted cleaner cuts, fewer burn marks, and I wanted hardwood to go through the blade with less effort. I got all that and more, there are no burn marks, my cuts are smooth as glass, and the wood slides through the blade "like butter." Now my rip cuts are as clean and easy as the cross cuts I make with my miter saw and an 80 tooth, high-quality, carbide tipped blade. The price was less than I expected to pay and Amazon delivered sooner than I expected.Freud LM75R010 10-Inch by 30t TCG 5/8-Inch Arbor Glue Line Rip Saw Blade

I typically use a combination blade for ripping. I had noticed some slight burning with a very expensive blade. Amazon had the Freud LM75R010 for under $50 so I got one to try out. I should have done this years ago. Several glue-ups of boards ripped with this blade are indistinguishable from boards that have been jointed and glued. The thin kerf is nice if you are trying to squeeze out a little more width from your stock. I would not hesitate to purchase this blade again.

Yes, this blade is top of the line and does indeed leave a no mark and no burn edge, completely ready for glue ups, or just for assembly and finishing. I recently bought a new Delta DW744 and thought to myself "for maximum performance, I need a new blade." Well, this is what I selected, and after ripping several pieces of walnut, I could not be happier. So far I've used it on 3/8", 3/4", 15/16" and 1 1/2" walnut and yep, I am a pleased camper. Cuts like a hot knife through butter - try it, you will like it!

I am retired and have started woodworking for my main hobby. Because of limited funds and space I don't have a jointer. I make tables and needed a good smooth joint for gluing the tops. After "wasting" money on several cheaper blades, I bought a FREUD GLUE LINE. This blade truly lives up to the positive reviews. The cut is exceptionally smooth. I am making "farmhouse" tables that are between 6' and 10' in length and I have learned to resaw the joint between two adjacent boards to get a perfectly matching joint. With the bottom side up, I screw a scrap board pendicular across each end of the two boards. Line up the joint so that you take a cut down the middle of the joint. This method produces a joint that is equal or superior to a joint made on a "jointer machine". Because of the geometry, the board edges match perfectly even if the blade is not at 90 degrees. Amazon has a good price and service as usual.

I have used nothing but Forrest blades for many years, but, having been given a job that will require a lot of ripping on 8/4, 6/4, and 4/4 very dry Red Oak, I decided to try out this blade. Other reviews and a recent article in a magazine gave me some comfort, but I remained skeptical. Forrest is a tough act to follow.

Having now ripped all of the 8/4 RO, I can easily reccomend this blade. The cut is not quite as smooth as a Forrest, but is easily acceptable. There is no burning or marking, and I suspect that I will be able to glue up tops right from the saw without having to run the boards through a jointer.

The blade is almost half price of the Forrest, the plate is .0050 thinner, but the carbide is the same width . The carbide tip is considerably smaller, so the blade will not give the number of sharpenings of the Forrest, therefore, over the long haul, the money will probably be similar.

I will continue to use the Forrest blade as my "go to" blade because I don't have to switch it out between ripping and crosscutting, but for a big rippping job, this blade just makes sense.

This blade keeps giving better cuts. Been working with some hard white maple and it rips 36 in boards with no problem. Not sure if there is a slight break in for blades, but at first I was getting a few burn marks on my rips. Then after making several rips the edges are like glass. They really match up perfect for edge glue ups on panels. I made a 20" wide panel and the lines are almost invisible they fit so well. You won't even need a jointer if you rip with this blade.

Does a fine job ripping for glue line. I use it with a one HP motor and it cuts 2 inch thick maple just fine. This blade makes all my glue lines for edge gluing.

Generally, I buy combination blades and the more teeth the better. I read an article in one of the woodworking magazines about glue line rip saw blades. I have several Freud blades and I am completely satisfied with them. The Freud LM75R010 30 tooth is a good blade. It performs as advertised, rips a cut ready for glue up, and is the blade I keep on my table saw. The highest tooth count on all these blades, regardless of maker)is 30 or 36. So, for exposed edges you have to do some more work to make it presentable. For a slick crosscut I use a Freud combination 10" 60 tooth blade on my radial arm saw. If you only have a table saw you have the dilemma of switching out blades for rips or crosscuts. Or you can buy a chop saw or radial to have a dedicated crosscut saw. In the end, this blade makes ripping faster, safer, and with less heat build-up with little scorching of the wood. The Freud, I felt, was the best value for the money.
