    One other thing is to change blades often. Cutting materials like that you effective blade life is 15 minutes or less....

    On some scrap, experiment with your blades.
    Sometimes changing the speed of the saw makes a world of difference.
    And how fast or slow you are pushing into the blade is big too.
    It's all friction and the heat can kill blades fast.
    Dull blades still cut, but burn wood and slow...

    If you like FD blades, FD Polar may be the way to go for thick hard maple. FD UR and Polar are my blade choice.

    I called the folks at PS today, and ordered a sample pack. Hopefully they will come tomorrow. I believe they cost much more than FD. I will post how the work for me....

    I have found that Pegas Blades are very brittle, or at least that is my opinion. I work with mostly 3/4 boards for my fret work and I have been using Sawtooth, Pegas, and FD #5 reverse tooth blades on Poplar, Red Oak, Cedar and Walnut. I alternate blades every time I change one out. Sawtooth starts...

    I agree that the Pegas blades seem to cut straight and not off to one side. Seems that a lot of folks prefer a lot of different blades. Tells me that they all must be pretty good and it is what you get used to.

    1.25" Maple is asking a lot from just about any blade. One thing that might HELP prevent burning is to double wrap the project with packing tape. Most folks seem to think the lubricant that keeps the tape from sticking helps lubricate the blade and slow down burning.

    1-1/4 maple is a hard cut no mater what blade you use. We all have our blade preferences mine is Olson and for this I would use an Olson PGT 5 or maybe even a 7. They cut straight and clean.
    You did not say what size FDUR blade you are using. I buy my blades from Sloans.

    I always use PS Wood Blades They are precision ground and fairly aggressive blade that works well on hard woods. I have used a #2 blade on projects where the wood is 1 inch & over. A sharp blade doesn't leave fuzzies and the only wood that I have ever burned is cherry. Here is their website:...

    Dan,

    First of all I used the FDUR for about 6 years and loved them Recently after reading Steve Goods Blog, I tried the Pegas Modified Geometry Blades and rarely use the FDUR blades. With the FDUR blades to stay on the line you must saw a degree or two to the left of straight. With the...
