Default Older Freud Blades

I just purchased some clamps from a fella for a great deal. He told me he had some 12" blades he would sell me for a good deal, all brand new. They were all Freud made in the early to mid 1990's. They are all still in the packaging. What was Freud quality like at that time. The carbide looked great. None of them had the laser cut slots for silencing. Thanks for your time.

They are probably a little better now but there was nothing wrong with them then. I have a Freud 10"thin kerf that I've been using since about that time, shaprpened once and still going strong.

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.

Will your saw handle 12" blades? Most of us have 10" tablesaws with 5/8" arbors and most 12" blades that I've seen have 1" arbor holes. If your saw can use them they should work fine for you.

Mike, I think you should grab them if they are a good price. Worst case they will be great for cutting MDF which tears up blades. Unless of course you don't like saving money...

I have no problem saving money. I just bought twelve clamps from the guy.
8 Jorgensen 4' i-beam clamps and 4 Jorgensen #2 hand-screws. All were brand new, never used. They were probably 6 years old, but not even touched. The saw blades are older, but still, not used.
