Buying a Miter Saw Blade
posted on June 12, 2014 by Rockler

Aside from getting the correct size blade, the main consideration when choosing a crosscut blade for your miter saw is whether the saw is a stationary or sliding miter saw. On sliding miter saws, regular crosscut blades can tend to take a deeper bite and "climb" the material, posing a possible danger. To reduce "climbing," manufacturers designed blades with teeth set at a negative hook angle that won't bite so aggressively. If you're using a sliding miter saw, these sliding miter saw blades are your best – and safest – bet.
