Choosing the Best Table Saw Blades: Woodworking for Beginners #30

Choosing the Best Table Saw Blades: Woodworking for Beginners #30

In this video I review how to choose the Best Table Saw Blade for your woodworking projects.
In most workshops the table saw is the most important woodworking tool so selecting saw blades for the table saw is crucial in getting good results in your furniture making and DIY projects whether it’s ripping blades, crosscut blades or trimming baldes. These saw blades can also be used on the mitre saw.

    this video made choosing the right blade for my table saw (the ripping blade WITH 24 TEETH ITEM D1024X) and for my miter saw (a cross cut blade with many teeth, like 90). EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FO. THANK YOU.
    QUESTION? ARE THESE BLADES SHAPENABLE?



  3. Shahrooz Shadbakht on May 16, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    I wish you did a ripping cut using the 90 tooth blade.



  4. Mike Staroschak on May 16, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Nicely presented … very helpful

    Excellent infotmation foundation… thanks.



  6. John Vaccher on May 16, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    What about hook angle, triple chip. Really important!!



  7. Ron Z Photography on May 16, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Great video. I learned a lot, and I took notes.
    Thanks!!!



  8. Jacob Anderson on May 16, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Sounds like I need a ripping blade for my table saw and a cross cutting blade for my miter saw



  9. Codigitty on May 16, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    I’m just wondering if the underside is the telltale side or not?



  10. Geoff Schulz on May 16, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    The one thing I was interested in, you didn’t show. You showed every combination except ripping with a cross-cut blade. Helpful information, but not complete.



  11. Mark Murdocca on May 16, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Thanks! this is great info. I’m a slave to the combo blade and your video gives me the kick to make the smart dedicated blade choice.



  12. Fake Profiles on May 16, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Thank you



  13. crankyboiy on May 16, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Can you use cross cut blade for long sheets 8 foot plywood for cleaner cut since there are more blades?



  14. Old Man Patriot on May 16, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    This was very helpful. Thank you..



  15. velvetsmack on May 16, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Awesome video. Right to the point with examples. Much appreciated



  16. cwd 123 on May 16, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Great info!!



  17. George Ireton on May 16, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    I bought a 7 1/4 in. thin kerf but the wood can’t get past the full kerf riving knife now. I took it off but am not liking that. Thoughts?



  18. roger gagne on May 16, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Thank you for sharing this wisdom . love learning about woodworking



  19. Nate Harris on May 16, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    So a multi tooth cross cut blade would be a pretty good choice for almost any wood?



  20. micah gawin on May 16, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Wow, I just learned so much so fast, thanks for sharing!



  21. Robert Spina on May 16, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    I get burn marks when cutting hardwood what causes this thanks



  22. Creatively Molly on May 16, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Anyone else’s anxiety kick up when people touch the blade teeth? 😂



  23. Noneya Frigginbezwax on May 16, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    I would have liked to have seen the wood pushed through the blades at different speeds to see if that changed the amount of tear out, and a low tooth count versus a higher tooth count on the blade types. I don’t expect the poster to run out and buy all these blades for the test (I don’t want to waste his money on blades he won’t really use), but I’m curious.



  24. Stephen Waite on May 16, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    With that cross cutting blade, how well does it do for rip cuts? Are you saying that a better all around blade to have if you’re only going to use one is a cross cut?



  25. taumax on May 16, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    What if I just using a cross cut blade for everything? What’s the downside to using a high tooth count blade for ripping?



  26. Jed on May 16, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Great video. As they say in that cooking show; You nailed it!



  27. Kelly O'Mera on May 16, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Thank you for this video, it is excellent and really helped me choose a couple blades.



  28. Alain Mehani on May 16, 2022 at 8:06 pm

  29. donald naymon on May 16, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Great info. Thank you for sharing.



  30. Kyle Kaker on May 16, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    A Gain



  31. Cool Dude on May 16, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Dear sir, is this also applied to hand held circular saw?



  32. Nik on May 16, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Awesome video exactly what I was looking for. Thanks again!



  33. A K RAGHAVENDRAN on May 16, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    excellent



  34. Chatty Monkey Don on May 16, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Great video. And your accent makes you sound like Joel from Mystery Science Theater 3000. You need a couple of snarky robot sidekicks.



  35. Casey Turner on May 16, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    This may be the most educational video I’ve ever watched. Thank you.



  36. brianlynchmsb on May 16, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Thank you so much Colin!



  37. nick muffin on May 16, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Sometimes I have to cut hardwoods like Purple Heart. The thing that confuses me is that when I look at the back of the saw blade packaging, there is a table that has a range of no. of teeth vs type of materials. For example the table says the 10" x24T rip blade is not the best to cut hardwood vs a 10" x 60T saw blade is better. With seeing this on the blade packaging I bought the latter. So now you are saying its best to use a 24T blade to make a cut on any wood type hardwood or soft wood. I am now even more confused.

    I understand that using a higher teeth blade is best for crosscutting and the low teeth blade is best for ripping and removing more material along the length of the board.

    What is the best blade to use for ripping hardwoods?



  38. Bill Giles on May 16, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    Excellent, thanks.



  39. 31kilo on May 16, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Thank you..



  40. Rafael C on May 16, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Great explanation. Thank you.



  41. Grumpy718 on May 16, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Using one of those blades. Will I be able to pass it thru plywood to make 1/4 dados with out passing it more then once



  42. Rey Malaret on May 16, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Thank you



  43. 5Shoez on May 16, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    this is great. each time you switch out blades, do you have to do a realignment each time?



  44. Kevin Dd on May 16, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    now I’m thoroughly confused. Just gonna buy that 50T combo blade at HD for my new skil table saw. Cuts great but dulls fast vs. cuts ok but lasts long..



  45. Danny N I Dabeesing on May 16, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I need to cut 4 inch thick 100 years old mahogany wood. Which blade would you recommend ?



  46. Jerry Dempsey on May 16, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    It great to review the basics from time to time. Thanks.



  47. Oliver Claffey on May 16, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Found out that by mistake. Cross cut blade was gunned up from ripping. so used another blade (ripping) and hey presto great rips. Thank you, Now I know which to use.



  48. Jivanildo Miranda on May 16, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Thank you, Colin. Cheers from Brazil!



  49. Blackgold67 on May 16, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Hi Colin.. In your opinion, what is the best table saw blade for ripping hardwoods?



  50. Kenny Homer on May 16, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    So crosscut blades work well on melamine. That’s good to know. Melamine blades are expensive
