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.
Blade Teeth. Blade teeth the more teeth on a blade, the smoother the cut. The majority of blades have between 24 and 80 teeth, expect for blades specifically designed to cut through certain materials. Why would you go with more or fewer teeth? More teeth ensures that the cut is smoother, but it also means the cutting will be done more slowly. Fewer teeth means faster cutting, but the cut will be rougher. A word to the wise: Do NOT EVER attempt to make the cutting faster by pushing the wood onto the blade. The only thing this will do is cause kickback, which will eject the wood back at you at a high rate of speed and potentially hurt you severely. So just be patient.
Basic Table Saw Features. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable when it comes to most power tools, but it took me a long time to “crack” table saws. There are so many things you need to consider it is insane! And I am just talking about the basics. If you want to look at non-standard features things get even more complicated.
Summary. I've kept this information relatively short and sweet, and you may have noticed I have neglected to mention some features which can be considered essential. However, fear not because I have plenty of other articles on my website designed to help you out with any question there might be in this respect. Of course, the best thing is you don't have to revert back to your main search engine because it's all here for you!
Elevation and Tilt Wheels. Elevations and tilt hand wheel The blade elevation hand wheel is usually located on the front of the saw and allows you to control the height of the blade, which effectively controls the depth of cut. In the case of 10-inch blades, the blade should be exposed around 3-5/8 inches at its maximum height which is sufficient to cut through a 4 x 4 in a single pass.
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.
Accessory Storage. On board storage space another handy thing to have on your table saw is some on board storage space which allows you to store all the necessary tools and accessories you might need while operating a saw. Some units can even store fences, miter gouges, blades, and plenty of other stuff.
