Any recommendations for a 12", 80T sliding miter saw blade?  Negative hook is still preferred, right?

I have this blade.  It is pretty good and fairly cheap:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C3H...UTF8&psc=1

I have a (I believe) a 96 tooth blade for my sliding table saw that cuts much smoother but cost over $200.00.  I don't know if the smoothness is a product of the saw or the blade however. 

But unless you are working with pre-finished moulding that level of smooth cut is not really required.  The sliding table saw that I have is a dedicated 45 degree miter saw built for the picture framing industry.  When I had my frame shop almost 100% of the mouldings were pre-finished. 

The Freud 100 tooth should work well for you.

I bought this 60 tooth a couple of weeks ago for 23 bucks on sale at Amazon
The reviews were good, so I said what the hay. I see the price has gone back up to 31.00 ... It is still worth it. It cuts really well.



If it can't kill you it probably ain't no good. Better living through chemicals.

I bought a Freud negative hook angle dado set for my radial arm saw.  It cut so much more cleanly than the Freud stacked dado set (positive hook angle) I had for my table saw that it is now the only one I use.  It does require a slower feed though.  But very clean edges on plywood.

My experience with 96 tooth blades was they are OK with softwoods and small cross section hardwoods, but they bog down and burn in really dense hardwood or large cross section hardwoods.  The 60 tooth Makita blade recommended above works really well for 95% of my needs and replaced the 60 tooth stock Bosch blade that came on my saw.  I never expected that blade to cut smooth enough for furniture work but it did.  Picture frame and similar work, sure, 80 teeth or higher.  For everything else, something around 60 teeth was a better choice for me.

I use a 10" blade on my 12" ras. Not sure if a 12" miter saw can use a 10" blade.
The best blade I have found is a Craftsman Titanium 10" 90 tooth.
Polished cuts. Love it.

As a finish carpenter / contractor I use the Diablo they’re reliable the quality is good and if they get messed up you don’t get too mad because the price isn’t through the roof. In my shop... I’ve always wanted to try a Forrest
