Warren,

I needed a blade in a pinch and sears had their craftsman "pro" blades on sale for $30. They cut great, are quiet, and a great GP blade. They're made in Italy, don't know by who. If you see them on sale, grab a couple.

Hi Warren - are you looking for an everyday cutting blade or a super nice finish blade?
I just put one of these on a couple of weeks ago for my table saw. Does a pretty decent job but I keep my Freud Fusion back for special projects.

Onsrud COM-10-098-50 10" Combination Saw Blade | eBay

Generally I prefer the Freud industrial blades, not the Diablos from Home Depot although they aren't bad either.
A lot less money than the Forrest but good enough for what I do. If your compound saw is a slider, make sure it has a very low, or, better yet, a negative hook angle.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

I use the AGE on the table saw, thinking about trying same on the Kapex and TS55 when need arises.

Quality is decent, pricing is middlin'
