Subject:
8" saw caution

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
It is dangerous to rip with a cross cut tooth profile. The blade resistance is high which could result in loss of control. Some 8" blades are for cross cutting. Some don't say what they are for. I tried a Freud "Diablo 40 tooth Finish" blade from some big box store that is 8". It could tell when ripping it was not for ripping. Instead of breezing through the wood I was having to push hard, a risky situation. I labeled it cross cut and reserved it for this only.
