This is the question that seems to come up many times. In carbide circular saw blades, there are so many options, so many designs and configurations that it can be overwhelming.
I’m going to try to clarify and simplify the selection process for you here. But first, I want to talk a little about the saw itself, since choosing the wrong saw can create real headaches when it comes to trying to buy replacement and specialty blades. Keep in mind not only the size of the saw, but the size of the arbor when selecting a new power saw.
