Essential Information on Table Saw Blades. On this website, I repeatedly maintain how useful table saws are and how much work you can get done if you learn to use them properly. At this point, we're going to assume you've done your homework and decided on a particular type of table saw, or maybe even a particular model, but your work is not quite done yet. Depending on your projects, sooner or later you are going to have to change the blade from the original one that comes with the table saw when you buy it. The choice of the right blade is crucial, and you will need to consider the type of material you will be cutting as well as its thickness.
Blade Sizing. Blade Sizes there are two ways table saw blades are sized: their outside diameter, and the diameter of the mounting hole. Most standard blades for table saws are 8, 10 or 12 inches in diameter, but there are blades as small as 3 3/8 inches in diameter and as large as 30 inches in diameter. The bigger ones are designed for specific commercial purposes, of course, but man, that's a big blade!
If finer cuts are what you have set out to achieve, a crosscut blade is the better option. The resulting cut is much smoother, but because the teeth have less space for chip removal and because there are more teeth to cut through the wood, the feed rate is much slower. If you need both speed and smooth finish, there are combination blades, which attempt to do both. Also, you may come across special cut blades. These are either designed to cut through certain materials like plywood, hardwood, metal, plastic, or even brick, or they are designed to make specialized cuts for the purpose of joint making. This includes sets of dado blades.
