ripping blade

I usually buy Forrest blades but it seems like there's a long delay when ordering. What 10" TS blade do you use?

They also display "Dampeners-Stiffeners". Has anyone used these and are they productive?

Freud 24 tooth heavy duty ripping blade. 20 deg hook, positive rack. Note that the teeth chip easily. I've got 2 or 3 chipped teeth in mine. Not worried about it, still cuts excellently and vibrates even less that before.

I have the same one Redman uses, a 24 tooth Freud...the LU71. But I only put that one for heavy ripping. There are times when I'll use a Forrest WW2 with 30 teeth for ripping as well.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

I failed to say I use that 24T Freud for half full depth cuts when resawing dimension lumber, it just hums right along. I make 2 cuts to have the blade fully raised.

My personal choice is the Freud 10" x 24T Thin Kerf Rip Blade (LU87R010). I like the thin kerf because, besides not bogging down as  easily, there are times I can get that extra cut. Been reliable. No burn.

I’ve ran the same blade, along with its 80 tooth counterpart for cross cuts. I too like the idea of saving material with the thin kerf. Had good results with them both.

What da heck? It looks like most folks use that blade. I like mine and it's the one that came on the saw. I'm not sure how old it is but it works great for ripping.
I use other Freud blades for everything else.

CMT 24T rip blade for normal stuff.
Freud Glue Line rip 30T for "fine" stuff.
Freud combo blade for plywood and crosscut (with a sled).

It has worked well for me.
