In this video, I downgrade my table saw blade from a 10 inch blade to a 7 1/4 Inch framing blade. This was something I learned from Bob Chase on the Master Woodworker Channel.
Bob often reiterates through his video that table saws made for the home woodworking shop should not be equipped with a 10 inch blade. He mentions several benefits including a cleaner cut, greater stability in the cut,less dust and reduced noise. I was pleased at the quality of the cut and even more pleased with having less dust to deal with. I am converted and so far, happier for it. Now this downgrade may not work with all table saws. Some models and manufacturers may have features integrated that only work with 10 inch blades. On my Rigid work site table saw, I was able to make some minor adjustments and downgrade successfully. The most beautiful thing about this downgrade is that the 7 1/4 inch framing blade costs only $20 as opposed to a 10 inch blade from the same manufacturer at $86.
