Rip cuts with high TPI blade? Answered
I was ripping a 2x4x8 stud with a 60 or 80 TPI Diablo blade in a single pass. It really took a long time and felt like the saw had to grind on the material much longer than my previous cuts.
Is that because I'm using a high TPI blade or because the blade is not a rip cut blade? (the Diablo blades don't specify whether they are cross cut or combo or rip, but the package indicates using them in Miter, Table and Handheld tools).
How would I be able to know if it's a true cross-cut blade or a combo blade?
What would happen if you attempt a rip cut with a cross-cut blade, or a rip cut with a cross-cut blade?
