Blade Types. Rip vs. Crosscut blades the two basic types of table saw blades are rip and crosscut blades. Rip blades have a smaller number of teeth and larger gullets, which means there's more room to remove the shavings and dust. These blades are designed to cut along the grain of the material on the table, but although they cut faster, the resulting cuts are rougher.
Safety Considerations. When making cross-cuts avoid using the miter gouge and fence at the same time. Why? Because when you slide the board towards the saw using a miter gouge the board will most likely bind against the fence. At this point I should remind you this will most likely cause kickback which will throw the board back at you, and at high speed! This is something you definitely don't want to happen – ever. My advice would be to dismount the fence, or set it a decent distance away from the board.
Now, the most common type of fence found on table saws at the moment (especially the cabinet type) is the Biesenmeyer Commercial “T-square” fence, or in most cases manufacturer's copies and offshoots of that design. It's the most popular design because it is easy to adjust and operate, is made out of welded steel, accurate, and best of all there is not much that can go wrong with it.
