Hi
Has anyone had long term comprehensive experience with these thin blades in a table saw and slide compound mitre saw? Do they bend and deform if pushed too hard? What materials have you used them in ? Do they blunt quicker than thicker blades? What is your overall experience with them?

I used to use thin kerf, but I do a fair number of miter corners, and the thin kerf blades always deflected. I had to deal with cuts that slightly wandered, leaving small gaps that I had to fill. Now I only use full kerf blades and generally wind up using this one.

This is the industrial line, slightly more than the red one but it has more carbide in the tips and can be resharpened many time. Every fourth tooth has a flat top so it produces a flat channel when it cuts, which is nice for splines in corners. It is a rip blade, but it produces such clean cuts that I use it for cross cuts and even have one on my sliding miter because I can make quick dados with flat bottoms by making several passes. Also works a treat for making small box joints on something like a "cigar" box.
