Certainly worth a try but make sure you have a blade guard on. I was looking for reviews on Avanti blades, made in China and distributed through Freud, and one reviewer said that he had one that started loosing teeth. One or two hit him at which point he tossed it.

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.

Buy several for crosscutting only, they are throw aways when they get dull, carbide too small to re-sharpen. Would make good job site blades where several different people use the saw, One screw, nail, grain of sand they are done.

I know guys who use the metal in throwaway blades to make scrapers, knife blades, etc.

Would definitely give it a try if putting a laminated floor down. I did a few bedrooms and dining room with laminated (all wood) plank and 'pergo' style green MDF core, definitely dulled a decent miter saw blade.

I may be wrong but I don't think I would use one unless a lot of people tell me they are good.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I don't think I would buy one for making fine cuts on good material. But for general work like framing, and pallet material, or loaning the saw to the neighbor, cutting up scrap for fire wood or throw away. There are a lot of times I do a projct for the garden or yard that I don't want to risk an expensive blade doing.

Agreed, for $5 bucks, hard to go wrong. That's even a fraction of the HF price!

the higher the negative rake blade you use for these materials the better off you will be...

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

Sounds like a great buy. I am new to doing wood working of any kind. One of the things, I have learned so far is, if it is a super great buy and it is cheap, it is just cheap. Anymore, I stay away from any thing that is super cheap. However, having said that, looking on the the sight and then looking at the review chart, they rated a 4.5 out of five. That is a great rating for anything you buy. So this may be the real deal.

I agree that it's worth a try, but teeth flying off would be a real concern. Face shields are a real pain to use, but maybe worth the trouble until you find out if they're safe. Safety glasses would protect your eyes, but flying teeth could also do you some damage in the throat and neck area. On the bright side, you could have piercings for face jewelry. Like a lip or nose ring.
