  • Suggestion on blade size

    Hello,

    Thus far I have been using 3/4 pine with a #5 skip tooth.
    Today I tried a 1 1/2 inch piece of poplar and the blade struggled.
    Any suggestions on a good size for this size and species of wood?

    I would bump it up to a #7 Ultra reverse or a polar blade. Share some pics of your projects we love pics here.

      You can find a lot of help here:
      What Blade Should I Use?
      Also go to Q & A many good tips.
      Have good tension on the blade, have good speed and low feed rate. If you push just a little too hard the blade will start cutting with a bevel. Most blades have a burr and will cut to the righ, you have to move the woos some degree to the right to stay on the line.

        If you have any questions about blades, I definately recommend Mike at FD Blades.

        Mike is right.
