What Should I Look For In Table Saw Blades?

There are a few things to pay attention to when selecting table saw blades. The number of teeth is important, as well as the quality of the carbide tips. The flatness of the blade also factors in. Table saw blades that are considered "fine-toothed" will give you smooth cuts. You have the choice to buy "hook-toothed" blades which cut faster, but you will sacrifice some smoothness for the speed. Some people buy large pieces of wood or logs for re-cutting at home. If you like to re-cut, some woodworkers prefer the "skip-toothed" blade, where the teeth are spaced farther apart, and won't clog as quickly.
