Synopsis: We tested nine 40-tooth combination blades with 1⁄8-in.(standard) kerfs, using them to make crosscuts and rips in pine, cherry, and plywood to determine how smoothly and cleanly they cut.We also ripped 8/4 hard maple to discover how they managed challenging ripcuts.
In the end, there is a tradeoff to be made between quality of ripcuts and speed.Because of their geometry, teeth ground to cut cleanly and smoothly do not rip quickly.So, when picking a combination blade, you must decide what you prefer: super-clean cuts or faster ripping.
