[Amazon.ca] Freud 10" Heavy Duty Rip Saw Blade 25% off - $44.95

I was looking for a flat top saw blade and found this Freud LM72M010 from Amazon. Looks like a good deal to me.

looks to have been this price since Dec 3

still a good price. It looks like it's a FTG vs a TCG (not sure how important that is in reality)

Useful for non-thru cuts. Cutting dados, splines, etc.

Decent price, wouldn't say it's hot though.

I actually bought one last week. Price is pretty good comparing to everywhere else but it's only good because of all the hyper inflation we've been experiencing. A blade with 24 teeth shouldn't be quite this much IMO.

I don't think I've ever seen a 24 tooth rip blade with TCG.

This is from Freud’s Industrial line. Compared to the (thin kerf) Freud Diablo seen in the box stores, it is thicker (more stable, but needs more HP on hardwoods). FTG (Flat Top Grind) is also power hungry vs other tooth profiles. Not recommended for portable saws; great for your 3HP Unisaw.

As others said, FTG gives nice cutouts for dadoes that do not need as much (or any) chisel cleanup vs. ATB or TCG blades.

This is a specialized blade designed for ripping (cutting with the grain). It’s a great price for this blade if you have a need for this.

Most people with table saws don’t need multiple blades and a single 40T or 50T combination blade is more useful. The 50T Freud Diablo from HD for example.

Here is the thin kerf version for lower powered saws:

Some people have gotten the ATB version, others have the FTG version. Freud seems to have both grinds for this blade. Same $45 price.

The D1050X is what I use as my default blade as well. Regularly goes for $40 (at least before the pandemic).

I don't believe they create FTG's with more than 24 tooth, however, so you're kinda stuck with a 24T if you need flat tooth.

I agree with everything you said, except for this. TCG blades will give clean, flat bottom in pretty much every wood, with the possible exception of soft woods. TCG exists because it is superior to FTG in chip clearing.

regardless of this nit-picking, this is still a good deal
