    its not very detailed in the area i'm working so i'll give your suggestions a try. thanks.

    blade for ripping oak??

    is there a blade out there designed to cut with the grain? i'm currently using
    a FD-SR #7 and unless i use a brand new blade, the wood is laughing at me. i'm cutting 3/4" oak. what i have been doing for the cuts with the grain is using a new blade every 5-10 minutes of cutting. i'm saving those blades for later use when i'm cutting across the grain.
