Not sure what T3 is Chuck?
I am a little neglect sometimes for using the same blade "to make just one cut" over and over and over again, instead of changing to another blade.
Guess that is why they invented a combination blade for guys like me.
So to solve my problem I have a RA saw set up with a 60t, and one table saw set up with a 50 t combo , and the other table saw set up with the box cutter blade for rabbets and dadoes.

TightBond III glue...

here's the PR release...
Titebond III: Ultimate Wood Glue

but it does have it's limits and IS NOT the answer for everything...
do an experiment...
let you TB (any flavor) glue brush dry...
now go and run some hot water over the brush...
amazing!!!
the glue plasticizes and washes away...
and people wonder why their glue joints fail...
especially the projects that get a lot of sun...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....
Forget the primal scream, just ROAR!!!

A combination blade is the one I don't have one of Herb. To me it's a case of compromising in exchange for versatility. It's not as good at ripping than a rip blade or crosscutting as a crosscut blade. I know that there is some economics involved for many people but my opinion is that if you can manage it, you will be better off in the long run if you buy one of each and get blades that are the best for what you want to do. The buying "one size fits all" is a case of short term gain but long term pain to my thinking.

Stick covered the other question better than I could have.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I have had good luck with my local ace hardware. 6 kapex blades and 3 ts55 blades for $90.00. They send them out to a local guy but they are best i have found in my area.

Not my first rodeo.

Closest sharpener is about 35 miles away. We had one south of town but the sign has been gone for several years now.

It's a matter of perception.

A lot of the small shops went out of bussiness when everyone went to carbide tip blades. Also the throw away blades hurt them too. Most lumber yards still are a drop off point for saw blade sharpeners.
