How is this blade cutting through 1-1/2" butcher block? Should I go with a 60 tooth instead?

Answer: 
Hi, Mike - You will get the best performance and finish from the D0740R. Given the thickness of the material being cut, the 60 tooth blade will cause minor burning or burnishing on the finished edge. The D0740R will have the correct amount of teeth working in the material to generate the best finish.

Answer: 
Hey Mike!
1 1/2" should be no problem for either of these blades. I was just in the 3402 store this weekend and the 40 tooth was on an end cap for a good price! The extra 5 bucks would get you the 60. It is just a question if you want the finer cut or not.

Answer: 
The 40 tooth will cut the Maple 1 1/2" Butcher Block just fine. A 60 tooth would be likely to heat up, and you could have some burnt edges to clean up. Go at a steady feed, but try to allow the blade to clean as you feed it (I always have my depth set up so I can see the bottom of the gullet at the bottom of the cut) HAPPY SAW DUST !!

Answer: 
Probably not. I use this blade for pressure treated wood, cedar lumber, PVC tubing, and polycarbonate panels. It does an excellent job for those. Melamine panels are typically a hard plastic coating on a particle board substrate. The plastic surface tends to chip badly and randomly when hit with the wrong
blade.

Answer: 
If the Melamine is a countertop I definitely wouldn't use this blade. I use this blade for framing lumber and ripping.

Hey Greg, I was just looking for a saw blade when I saw the 70 tooth D0770F non ferrous metal cutting. I first saw the D0756F 56 tooth non ferrous blade. Good Luck

Answer: 
Hi, Greg - We do not recommend using the D0740R for cutting light aluminum. The D0740R is not designed to cut non-ferrous materials. The D0756N is designed to cut non-ferrous material including aluminum, brass, and copper.

Hi, Casey - The Diablo D0740R will cut composite decking material. However, for life and quality of cut, we recommend using the Diablo D0744CD specially designed for composite decking boards.

No, The Diablo 40-tooth is a good blade for general cutting of wood, decking and all pressure treated wood. It makes a good finish cut with little or no Saw Kurf Swirls as in general purpose blades. It will eventually gum up after using on composite wood. When this happens the cuts on the composite wood looks like it melted because of the heat generated while cutting.

No, The Diablo 40-tooth is a good blade for general cutting of wood, decking and all pressure treated wood. It makes a good finish cut with little or no Saw Kurf Swirls as in general purpose blades. It will eventually gum up after using on composite wood. When this happens the cuts on the composite wood looks like it melted because of the heat generated while cutting. Composite woods products require a little higher tooth count and blade design. Diablo makes a blade, 7-1/4 in. x 44 Tooth Composite Material/Plastics TrexBlade that is idea for cutting composite woods. When you get to the composite part of your project just change out the blade and you are set to go for the professional look! Read Less

Hi Casey, The way I keep straight on blade selection is to go to the Home Depot site and punch in 7 1/4 Diablo Blade in the search bar. I have done it at home or used the kiosk in the store. There you will find a blade for just about any building material out there.
It saves me time by entering my zip code to check availability at my local store and gives the aisle and bay location!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 368 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Blades I was first exposed to Diablo circular saw blades over 10 years ago and have been running them ever since. High quality, durable, no vibration clean cutting, cuts thru wood smooth as silk. I was lucky enough to find this blade in the 2 pack promo set. I put one of these 40 tooth fine finish blades on my cordless 18 volt brushless Ridgid circular saw to cut some laminate while laying a floor and it did a great job, no chipping just nice clean smooth cuts. If your looking for a high quality blade look no further. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes my OK saw an awesome one I never thought a saw blade could make that much difference, but as I get into a little woodworking, it makes all the difference - even on my 20 year old Ryobi circular saw. Compared to buying 10" blades (for my table saw), these are not a bad deal at all. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent ripping saw blade Ripping sheets of anything with the blade that came with my plug in circular saw was a test of patience. The saw wanted to walk away from the straight edge and it was difficult for the saw to make the cut. Putting this blade on the same saw was like getting a completely different saw. Cut through materials with little effort and easy to keep on the straight edge. Made cutting 3/4" particle board like cutting butter. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase I bought this blade for a cut I needed to on a new countertop. I also added some blue tape so the finish wouldn't chip. The combo of the new blade and tape worked like a charm. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cuts like crazy I bought a new blade from Harbor Freight and it was so bad i thought my saw was just too old. Gave it one more try with this Diablo and cut like butter. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best blade on the market Long lasting, smooth and fast cutting. We use these everyday July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Needed a large blade for LP Smartside installation This blade worked well with LP Smartside and made clean cuts June 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't work on my circular saw This product seems to be high quality; however, it's kerf is too thin for my SKIL circular saw so it stops spinning soon after I engage it in a cut. I can't use it unless I shim it somehow, so I am now using the original blade that came with my saw again. June 28, 2016
