George Vondriska introduces you to the various types of table saw blades in the line of DeWalt Precision Trim Saw Blades that you can utilize on a table saw for your woodworking projects. He talks about a crosscutting blade with 60-80 teeth in an alternate top bevel pattern that is optimal for end grain and sheet good cuts, a ripping blade with 24-40 teeth with a flat top grind good for ripping stock, and a general purpose 40-tooth blade with an alternating top bevel pattern AND deep gullets that you can use to both rip and crosscut wood.

    What about pitch angle on blades and triple chip grinds? Both are not mentioned in video. Also what do you think of combination blades?

      TCG (triple chip grind) blades are great to have you work with abrasive materials like MDF. Hook angle on most rip blades will be around 12-degrees. On crosscut blades it can be from 5-degrees to negative 5-degrees. Today’s combination blades are 40-tooth alternate top bevel blades, and they do a pretty good job with most cuts.

    George, on the Red Oak Cross Cut at 8:40 in the video you stack the just cut pcs and show us the edge that was not cut by the 40 tooth blade.

      Looks like you’re right. Brain bubble on my part. Good news is that at 8:44, where you can clearly both edges of the top piece, the right edge (that was cut) looks good too.
