One of my colleagues, Greenhorn Artisan, has a really nice cut-off saw with a really expensive blade on it for fine woodworking. It puts a very smooth professional edge on the end grain. I've seen how it looks on red cedar and black locust-- very very nice. I'm not sure what the name of the blade is, but I can find out.

Would definitely be interested in trying that blade. Thanks much

I'll have to look next time I go back to work. I called him just now, and he said he can't remember the brand or exactly what it is called. It is a fairly large diameter blade, at least 12", maybe more like 14 or 15. He said he bought it at Home Depot and it is just a nice high quality blade designed for cutting trim wood, moulding, etc. The saw he has it on is a big miter saw. Rigid, I think, though I could be wrong.

In one precise cut, the end grain is instantly cut smooth as a table top, or close.  ;D

I've been pleased with the cut of Forrest blades.  They have different blades for different uses.

Blades that leave a very nice finish are expensive

They are expensive, but it's all relative if you want that nice finish for your projects.

I use a Freud "glue line" blade on my sliding miter saw.  I also have a glue line ripping blade for my table saw.   Both are quite expensive.

I still haven't been able to confirm, but I think Greenhorn's blade may be a Freud. I will let you know as soon as I get back over there (and make it home) so maybe Wednesday or Thursday. I didn't manage to work today, too rainy for me to bother. Sawmill is probably surrounded by water.
