iron wood up cut saw blade size ?10/29
hi wood workers this is frank
The difference between having a 14" vs an 18" dia. blade on an uncut saw is the width of the board it can cut , not on the quality of the cut.
The Ironwood literature should have that spelled out in their spec sheet on the machine.
The larger the blade the more deflection you might get, or blade wobble. I have a 16" blade and if I cut fast in thicker material, there is usually an uneven cut, slow the cutting or jump speed and the cut improves. Also I have found that material that is more than half of your blade cut capacity will have blow out on the top cut edge no matter the cut speed. With mine a 7" board will not have this where as a 10" one will. Spend the money on really good blades if you are going for finished cuts, I use mine for face frame, door and drawer box parts all the time. Dustin
If memory serves its a Freud blade.
