What should I use to cut MDF wood?

Answer:
This video provides some info on table saw blades. A triple chip blade is best for mdf and other abrasive materials, like particle board.

    For other man made products like melamine and MDF are these the best blade for those products?

    Will a diamond blade (.023 kerf) cut 3/32 slits in walnut that are cross cut for guitar fret board. I have 5/8 arbor on 10 inch table saw. Will a 4″ blade fit on a 10 inch table saw (with proper arbor)?

      I have never tried either of these so I can’t comment from experience. If the arbor is the right size on the 4″ blade I don’t see any reason that it wouldn’t fit.
