The Jointer will be Lonely
on January 13, 2012
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.
