SCMS blade recommendations


Recommended Posts

Hey gang,

Well, I've gone and done it. I ordered a new Makita LS1016L SCMS! It will be my first miter saw, and I'd like to outfit it with a decent blade.

From what I understand, I should probably be looking for a 10" with 60-80 teeth. I also am aware that with a slider, a small positive tooth angle, or even negative angle, is preferred. I a few Diablo makes one for a SCMS, D1060S. I believe it has a 7 degree positive angle.

That's way too many teeth IMO unless you're building cabinet grade projects. I run 44T Diablo's in my 12", if tear out is a concern when running door casing or the like, I just put a piece of sacrificial material against the fence...flawless cuts for less than half the cost.
