The Fence. One crucial component of every table saw along with the engine and blade is the fence. In fact, making a precise rip cut would be impossible without it. There is basically one type of fence most table saw manufacturers tend to use, but before we get into that let's go over the main characteristics a good fence should have. First of all the fence should allow for easy and hassle-free adjustment both horizontally and vertically. The fence should also sit on the rails firmly, and there should be NO “wiggle” room apart from the sliding.
For instance, the teeth on blades that cut through wood are made out of steel or carbon steel, which ensures their durability. Then there are masonry blades, which have diamond-tipped teeth, and you can also find blades that are made to cut through aluminum and steel. Such blades have teeth that are treated with hardened metal or tungsten carbide. Finally, there are blades designed to cut through PVC and acrylic materials, which have teeth made out of low-temperature tungsten carbide.
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!
