    Hi Steve;
    Congratulations on your new saw. Hope you get many years of great sawing enjoyment with it.
    You previously asked
    When drilling a hole for interior cuts, why use holes that match the blade size? If the area to be cut out is large (let's say 1/4 to 1/2"), why not use a 1/16 or 1/8 bit? I see charts that give the various bit sizes to match blade sizes.
    Here is a good chart that shows what size drill bit should be used for different size blades.

    Hope that helps with your inquiry.

      Drill Bit Chart

      WY. I went to the site you mentioned to check out the chart for drill bit/blade sizes, but did not see it. Exactly where is it? Sometimes I have a problem with my present browser so while I'm waiting for your reply, I'll try a different one.
      Thanks

        hmmmm . . that's strange. When I click on it the chart comes up immediately even on dial up service. It says blade chart in red letters just above where it shows the size of drill bit to use all down the right side for the various sizes of blades.

          Chart

          Thanks W. Y. Just didn't see the blade size on the far right. Was looking for a different type of chart. This one is excellent!
