Default Negative Rake on a table saw?

Looking to the future I've seen a good deal on a 250mm blade that will fit my TS. I know what negative rake is but am unsure if it can be used on a TS. It's -5* and I read somewhere that these blades were for mitre saws (no good to me in that respect) but other places mention TS blade.

Can it be used in a table saw or is it only for mitre saws?

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

if you cut plastics and aluminum...
some of the very hard woods that are prone to quickly dull cutters cut better w/ a negative hook angle.....

One of the reasons for negative rake on a mitre saw is that it helps push down on the board during the cut. A high positive angle would tend to lift it and could be dangerous. Negative on a table saw will tend to lift the board but a 5* angle shouldn't make much difference. It's just something to be aware of while you are cutting. I would have to reference it to be sure but I think melamine and veneer cutting blades have zero or negative hook.

You can go to some of the blade manufacturer sites and look at the tables they have for what each of their blades are best at and the specs will sometimes include grind type and tooth angle. I think Forrest's site has a chart like that.

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.

Thanks guys. I did read it's good for veneered and melamine covered boards so it sounds good.

Just the info I needed.
