Hi, i'm a heavy duty DIYer... a few years ago i bought a table saw and a dewalt compound mitre saw....my question is ... when is my saw blade blunt?
My saws get (for a DIYer) quite heavy use....most weekends, cutting rebates, rough timber, all sorts of board etc...
when is it right to get a new blade, and what sort should i get.... oh and what should i do with the old one?

thanks guys

In answer to your question you will notice the difference when you fit the new one. If no difference then keep the existing blade. icon_cool.gif
