A visitor to WoodNet asked a great question recently. He’s got a PM2000 sitting in his woodshop but no blade for it. Also… he’s only willing to budget enough money for buying a single HIGH QUALITY table saw blade.

His question:

I have this PM2000 sitting here with no blade. I would like a recommendation on a quality blade that I can use for most purposes. If need be, I could also get a cheap one for rough cutting. What would your recommend?

Woodnetters responded. I counted results. Here’s what I saw:

If you’re still not convinced about which blade to get for your table saw then you should definitely check out this blade comparison chart of 30 various blades by Sawmill Creeker Scott Spencer. Jumpin Jehosephat that’s A LOT of work he put in there to categorize and classify table saw blades!
