FWIW, just checked my main miter box, it's a Dewalt with a Dewalt blade, blade is stamped that it's for a power miter box, it has a 7° hook. It's possible that recommendations have changed. Doctors and governments do it all the time.

Some miter blades do have a low positive hook Jack but the better ones have a negative hook. The gative hook pushes the workpiece down towards the table where the positive hook wants to lift it., the safer part. The negative hook usually cuts a little smoother without tearing fiber as easily but they do tend to cut a little slower. Melamine blades often have a negative hook. I managed to pick up some Onsrud blades on ebay that I think they were dumping to get rid of because I don't see them on their website anymore. They are marked for use on a miter saw and have negative hook angles and I've never had any blade cut as smoothly as they do.

“…Freud is a good brand, but Sears Craftsman also delivers good quality with their tools.”

Dunno ‘bout that.

Craftsman is famous (or is that infamous??) for discontinuing tools and not having/stocking replacement parts. Heard it said: “Buy Craftsman? Buy two: one to use; one for parts.”

And from what I read and hear, Delta is now just as bad.

To assist those looking for parts I believe there was a thread on this site linking Sears model numbers with the manufacturer’s codes in locating spare/replacement parts.

It all depends on who Sears had make something and to what specifications. I know that some Sears blades were made by Vermont American which is a kind of middle of the road quality but there may have been others also that were of better quality. Delta was the same. They offered blades and bits. I bought a 1/4 roundover and was told that it was a CMT with gray paint instead of orange. It turned out to be a very good bit. I also bought a Delta branded miter saw blade and it turned out to be so-so. The Delta rip blade I supplied a link to was made by Leitz in Germany so I would expect it to be of top quality. So unless you're buying a blade that was actually made by the name on it then it can be a bit of crap shoot but that doesn't mean you can't luck out and get something very good.

I have bought mostly Craftsman tools sets form Sears, some have been discontinued/upgraded. The only thing I have actually had to take back was a couple of broken 1/2" drive ratchets & a 25 ft. tape measure that the spring broke inside. Each time they replaced it with the current model. May be different with power tools.

The sockets and ratchets did and may still have lifetime warranties, the power tools usually only one and I think occasionally two year warranties. Shortly after that repair parts start getting hard to find. Blades and bits would only be warrantied against defects. Once I got a blade that still had a raw chunk of carbide for a tooth. It got missed in the grinding sharpening process. You can't imagine what rough is unless you've had it happen. That would be an instant replacement. If a blade or bit vibrated so bad you couldn't use it it would be an instant replacement. Prematurely wearing out would probably be your problem unless a lot of people had it happen and made a big stink about it. So there are at least 3 levels of warranty. Lifetime, limited, and barely out the door.
