Blade selection is critical to making the perfect cut and also taking care of your saw’s motor. Here are some facts from iQ Power Tools on proper saw blade selection:
Blade selection is critical. The bottom line is if your blade is not cutting, it doesn’t matter what the rest of the system is doing.
Putting the wrong blade on the machine. You want to make sure you are putting the right blade on your machine because if you don’t, you will start to overload the machine which will start to affect other components.
Developing blades. The way iQ Power Tools develops blades is by making cuts using one of their machines and tracking how well it cuts and how long it will last before it is completely worn out.
