Being a Covid new carpenter and small projects and minor repairs I needed to fine trim a table project. Popped this blade on and cuts smooth as advertised. Went straight out and bought a 12” for my mitre saw. Great product.
Replaced my blades on my Miter saw and Table saw. A definite upgrade from the blades that come with the equipment. These are for general perpose cutting, if I wanted a better cut I should have gone for the fine cutting blade, but these are still good.
I used this saw blade with my 10” miter saw mainly to cut vinyl flooring and was able to floor a 2000 square foot area without having to change the blade. Cutting was smooth and easy from the first to the last cut. I feel like in general this brand of blades last longer then most other brands I have used
I bought this blade for the specific task of cutting down some cellular shades with aluminum head and foot rails. We replaced some bow windows and they were slightly smaller that the originals. Since the eight shades - 4 per window - were a couple of grand I thought I'd try and resize them before spending another pile of dough. I wasn't too sure about how it would turn out but I had nothing to lose since I would have to buy new ones anyway if this little project went south.
I ended up taking about an inch off each shade. The blade cut the metal and blinds beautifully. What I didn't know was the footers had two 1/4 steel rods hidden in them to add weight to the footer. I missed hitting them on the first shade but was unpleasantly surprised when the blade kicked back on the second one when it hit the rods. It did cut through them with no damage to the blade, but if you're ever going to try something like this take a look to be sure there's nothing hiding in the aluminum channels.
So the bottom line is the blade worked great and cut through some steel it wasn't designed to with no damage. I'm also planning on putting some laminate flooring in my office soon and this should prove ideal for that project too.
For this price, you can get a much cleaner cut. I'm sure glad I got it. See my pictures of the stock 24T cut vs this blade's cut. Almost gives the end grain a new life! There was a little bit of red paint sticking to the wood but it was the first cut out of the box with this blade. Did not happen again for me.

I have been using Diablo Saw Blades for a long time I really like the super narrow kerf it just cuts faster and cuts away less wood. The perma- shield non stick coating on the blade works great well at least my blade is always clean never gummed up The Blade cuts through any hard wood that I use for my cutting boards like Purple Heart, Padouk, brazilian cherry , Zebrawood with ease. The blade really does stay sharp for a long time.This is a Great General purpose Blade and I have Diablo blades on all my saws. A Great Product
Wife bought a very thick countertop, and it needed ripped the whole length and trimmed on the shorter dimension. This blade was flawless! I used a cutting guide and put painters tape on surface to help avoid chipping. Worked great.
