Which circular saw blade?


Recommended Posts

I have a Ryobi One+ R18CS circular saw (standard blade - 165mm, thin kerf, 16mm bore, 24 tooth blade) I am intending to cut quite a lot of melamine faced board (wardrobe doors and drawer faces). I have been told that for a good finish I need to get a 60-72 tooth cross cut blade. Ryobi do not seem to do one. Can you advise me who's blade is best and would fit? [There seem to be many blade suppliers, but I am assuming many will be poor quality/short life, but do not know which are not!]. Thank for any advice.

Welcome to the forum.


For both my 7¼" circular saw and my 10" table saw I have a Freud Ultimate Plywood and Melamine blade, LU79R007 for the 7¼" and LU80R010 for the 10".


For your Ryobi 165mm blade diameter w/ a 16mm arbor, unfortunately the Freud Ultimate Plywood and Melamine blades LU79R006M20 or the LU96R006M20, both 160mm diameter but w/ a 20mm arbor won't work.


All these are rated by the manufacturer as excellent for melamine.


A correct application carbide blade will have the best results / life.
