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 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.
Obviously, the easiest way to know which blade fits your table saw would be to consult the instruction manual. Also, use some common sense. There is a finite amount of space inside the arbor, so you can't use just any blade. The space is also limited with the presence of a blade guard. Speaking of the arbor, the central arbor hole on most table saw blades is 5/8 inches in diameter, but then again, there are exceptions to that rule. If the diameter and the arbor are supported by the saw, you are on the right track.
