Is This The BEST Saw Blade Ever? / Freud Premier Fusion

Getting good quality table saw cuts is significant to woodworkers who consider themselves to be serious about their woodworking and what they are making which is often boxes, picture frames, and quality furniture like chairs, tables, cabinets, and benches. We have often relied on high-quality dedicated cross-cutting and ripping blades for these purposes. Still, anyone who has seen the quality of cuts you can get from the Freud Premier Fusion, General Purpose blade can quickly change their mind. If you are constantly swapping blades in your table saw, you will definitely want to look at this blade. Imagine a blade that is good as the best ripping and crossing blades, but you never have to change the Freud blade, that’s the kind of quality you can expect, clean saw blade cuts with virtually no tear-out, chipping of wood fiber loss, truly the next generation in saw blades from Freud tools.

    great presentation video – thx a lot.
    This Steve you are talking about, is that Steve Ramsey? You missed to put the channel into your descriptions, I am afraid.
    Greetings and blessings from Germany!



  2. Ryan Anthony ™ on July 16, 2023 at 2:46 pm

    I thought you get a better cut with the blade higher, because of the angle the tooth hits the stock…..

    I am a youtuber mere youtube channel se aapko help mil sakta hai ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️



  4. Paul Champagne on July 16, 2023 at 2:48 pm

    Will the freud 40t innovative 10 inch blade be good to rip or cross cut purple heart and tiger woods?



  5. O T on July 16, 2023 at 2:51 pm

    Jack, Steve, Jill and Arthur happily lived ever after, Mo, Ahmad and Fatima suffered for the rest of their lives. Ha!



  6. Brad Bale on July 16, 2023 at 2:52 pm

    How does the thin kerf compare, equally as impressive? Or just the full kerf stands out



  7. Frédéric J. on July 16, 2023 at 2:52 pm

    I own this blade but still prefer my glue line blade and ultimate cut off blade. I find the result to be a little better.



  8. Ryan Anthony ™ on July 16, 2023 at 2:53 pm

    I’ve been trying out the Spider Tarantula blades… they’re probably all from the same factory lol with different paint



  9. AKATONA1953 on July 16, 2023 at 2:54 pm

    Thankx for your enchantingly sincere, wise and pro videos. Greetings from Hungary.



  10. Joe Nativio on July 16, 2023 at 2:57 pm

    Love that blade. It’s been my go-to for many years. Just bought my second after several resharpenings of the original. An absolute bargain as well.



  11. jimcastino on July 16, 2023 at 2:57 pm

    I only have one caution on this blade. The alternating teeth will leave a slot that is slightly rounded; not flat. That has been my experience.



  12. rod potts on July 16, 2023 at 2:58 pm

    i just sent some blades in for sharpining and my dioblo they said over half the carbides were cracked and i had just taken it off my saw.
    Ridge Carbide does a great job resharpening btw.



  13. Hassan Al-Mosawi on July 16, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    Thanks for sharing those tips!



  14. Christopher Marentette on July 16, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    I cut melamine every day with Freud blades on a table saw and on a chop saw, and I can say that the blade will always do well at first, however within a short time it will be dull enough to chip out the "bottom" melamine, and only with a sacrificial board can you be assured of a clean cut. This is why most cabinets are cut on CNC router tables with sacrificial MDF sheets under the melamine. When I need a clean cut on both sides I might use a sacrificial piece or sometimes I use a track saw since that can also get pretty good clean cuts on both sides. Melamine is tough on saw blades and the glues and resins they bind the wood together with aren’t great either. Just my two cents.



  15. Randall Burgess on July 16, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    Very informative and much appreciated. That being said, I don’t understand the constant harping on the cost. If it were $650, sure. If you can’t afford $65 then woodworking probably isn’t for you. If people are complaining to you about high prices it’s time for them to grow up. The price of goods isn’t on you. 😀



  16. Edmund Hayes on July 16, 2023 at 3:00 pm

    I tripped my Sawstop break yesterday by hitting a piece of metal (not a finger). I may give this blade a try after the new break arrives.



  17. jim packard on July 16, 2023 at 3:01 pm

    I imagine that this blade is great for DIY. High production companies often use Stehle , Leitz or Leuco.



  18. Stephen Donathan on July 16, 2023 at 3:04 pm

    I’ve been using Diablo forever but I might have to try this blade out



  19. Ferguson TO-20 on July 16, 2023 at 3:04 pm

    Where can I find Freud blades & what is best type blade for circular saw & miter saw ?



  20. Bill Boy on July 16, 2023 at 3:05 pm

    You should research how madden blades are designed to be raised to the bottom of the gullet and not 1/8” above the wood.
    Don’t buy these low cost blades. My Popular Tool blades or Amana or made to order cermet blades from Carbide Processors plus several other manufacturers are sharper and stay sharper. The company you’re recommending has become more of a basic consumer blade and not for the real user of the tool. Everyone should keep their blades clean.



  21. Bill Boy on July 16, 2023 at 3:05 pm

    To answer your title. NO



  22. Brian Flynn on July 16, 2023 at 3:06 pm

    Sorry Collin……Im sticking with CMT. Same quality and re-sharpen able also, at less cost.



  23. Henry Parrott on July 16, 2023 at 3:07 pm

    Good advice 👍 like you show 👏



  24. iBuild Things on July 16, 2023 at 3:07 pm

    I’m a big fan of my amana prestige 40t – heard good things about this Freud too



  25. Anthony Audain on July 16, 2023 at 3:09 pm

    Thanks for sharing that video I had one of those blade and yes I agree with you 100%. They are good blade I use it for over a few years eventually it get dull and I was a throw it away try to buy another one but it’s very cost too much money right now I never knew it cost that much today



  26. Mr Rick on July 16, 2023 at 3:10 pm

    Not many come close to the perfection of a Forrest blade. How does this Freud compare to blades like this?



  27. Larry Bloom on July 16, 2023 at 3:10 pm

    Impressive blade but I really would have liked to have seen a comparison with, say, the oft recommended (by you, too, I believe) Diablo 60 tooth combination blade.



  28. John Rice on July 16, 2023 at 3:11 pm

    Wow – wow. Excellent. Thank you.👍👍👊



  29. MagiusUSA on July 16, 2023 at 3:13 pm

    Nice thru-cuts for sure.
    Does this blade have any flat face ground raker teeth?
    I don’t really care for the grooves and bat ear cuts produced in dados by ATB blades without rakers.



  30. Stanley Smith on July 16, 2023 at 3:13 pm

    Sure, like your information. I do mostly high-end work, but on a small scale. My question is can a woodworker get just as good a cut with an 8.5-inch table saw. I need to get a new one and am curious to know if it is just as accurate as a 10-inch blade? Probably will get a contractors saw since I do not do a great amount of work. Thanks



  31. Pro1er on July 16, 2023 at 3:13 pm

    I haven’t had good luck with thin-kerf blades, even the Freuds, they tend to flex on me and leave somewhat of a very slightly wavy edge.



  32. Reno Holland on July 16, 2023 at 3:15 pm

    Thanks for the video Colin. I am looking for an affordable 10" flat kerf blade since I plan do do some box joints. Any suggestions?



  33. Trinidad Molina on July 16, 2023 at 3:15 pm

    Agreed on the comment as to needing some flat top raker teeth. Does look like a great blade. Like you, my two main blades are the Freud 90 TC Ross cut and their glue-line rip



  34. Robert Smith on July 16, 2023 at 3:15 pm

    If you slap a WEN blade from Amzn for $12,00 ,see just how well it cuts. When it’s toast ,toss it to the recycle bin . Mine lasted 5 months.



  35. Epeius Garage on July 16, 2023 at 3:16 pm

    I agree. I just bought the Freud dado stack. I’m going to do a video comparing it to the harbor freight stack.



  36. Clay Bowser on July 16, 2023 at 3:20 pm

    I like the Freud blades but on my Sawstop Industrial cabinet saw the Freud blades are shorter in height than the riving knife so if you are doing a cut that doesn’t pass through the piece and have the riving knife on, the knife hits the cut and lifts the board up. It’s kinda bull that you have to grind the riving knife down to do these kind of cuts. None of my other blades are like this.



  37. Richard Wiles on July 16, 2023 at 3:24 pm

    Don’t forget those juicy affiliate links folks. Kerching!



  38. Mike Bauer on July 16, 2023 at 3:25 pm

    OK, ordered mine, thank you



  39. Paul Booij on July 16, 2023 at 3:25 pm

    I got a high end industrial blade when I bought my table saw, it’s a great combo blade. Cost $300 canadian. It’s amazing.
    I use CMT blades as well. No more Freud for me.



  40. MC's Creations on July 16, 2023 at 3:26 pm

    Pretty impressive results indeed, Colin! Fantastic blade! 😃
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊



  41. LordHog on July 16, 2023 at 3:27 pm

    A blade many channels recommend are the CMT blades. How do those two compare? I have had some Diablo blades, same parent company owns them, and the issue I have with them is they can leave red marks on the wood.

    Also, how are these going to compare to blades like Forrest and other high end blades?



  42. Tom C on July 16, 2023 at 3:27 pm

    Thank you. Great blade review. Hate to see you work without a splitter, riving knife, push stick and over arm blade guard. I always use those safety devices even for demos.



  43. Midnightsun on July 16, 2023 at 3:27 pm

    Prestige electric blu. Only way to go 👍👍



  44. SLIM'S BOXING COMMENTARIES on July 16, 2023 at 3:31 pm

    U need to try these SAXTON BLADES Colin my friend.. They’re far cheaper and the cuts are fantastic. I have been very impressed by them so far. I have been using a 28T 250mm x 30mm Bore and 2.6mm Kerf.. I also bought their 40T 250mm x 30mm bore 2.6mm kerf.. There has been no tear out so far and I’ve been using the 28T for ripping Plywood, MDF, OSB board, hardwoods, softwoods, etc.. The cut from my 40T SAXTON blade is so clean as well Colin. I would like to ask u to give them a try if u have then cash to spend. They’re very inexpensive blades. I don’t know if they’re stamp pressed blades bcos I’m not in my shop atm but i will check tomorrow and let u know.. Thanks for the heads up on these FREUD blades..



  45. cctknight84 on July 16, 2023 at 3:32 pm

    I’m going to guess this is covered on your Choosing Blades video referenced at the end, but you probably should not use the full kerf blade if you have a lower hp saw. (I have a 3 hp Sawstop, and have used premier fusion for quite some time.) It is my understanding all the Diablo blades are think kerf. Also, why are you not using a riving knife when ripping those boards? (I would have said blade guard, but then the viewer would not be able to see the cut.) I think viewers newer to the use of a table saw should be instructed on some basic safety ideas, or at least told when you are not following them.



  46. Tom on July 16, 2023 at 3:32 pm

    Does anyone have eperience with the bosch expert for wood blades? They are made by the same manufacturers and therefore I’m wondering wich is the better blade.



  47. Robert Bamford on July 16, 2023 at 3:34 pm

    Going to give the thin-kerf version of the fusion a try.



  48. Joe Brown on July 16, 2023 at 3:37 pm

    I bought my first Freud blade 10 years ago & they’re all I use. Awesome quality & performance. Good video Colin.



  49. Alpha Force on July 16, 2023 at 3:40 pm

    I’ve been telling people about this blade whenever there is interest in woodworking and I will say it again: this is really the best single blade you can get. It’s literally an "upgrade" for any table saw that doesn’t have one. Forget about those boutique blades that keep getting recommended by youtubers trying to do a favor for their buddies who sell crappy blades… Freud Industrial makes good blades and other cutting tools in general but this Premier Fusion is really going to be the last blade you buy for your table saw. I use the P410T which is the thin-kerf version. You will be able to make precise cuts in any kind of wood. It stays crazy sharp for so long, that even though the initial price is higher it will keep going whereas cheaper blades would have had to have been replaced or resharpened…and there’s enough meat on the teeth to resharpen the P410T when it finally does need it (mine 5+ years still sharp as new and I’ve cut many feet of wood in that time).



  50. strrchristmas on July 16, 2023 at 3:41 pm

    One reason Diablo blades are so good is they ARE made by Freud. Actually Bosch owns both the Freud and Diablo brands. While Freud is normally rated as the best in price range, and rightfully so, Diablo is just a little bit lower in quality and price range. Keep in mind, BOTH are high quality tools and well worth the price. Comparing these two brands of the same type/style blades, will show the results are nearly identical.
    Thanks for another GREAT video. As always, you present a load of educational information.
