    Larry, any reason Freud only??? I know they are good blades, but there are others out there that are good also. I know of a ripper that is on sale for about $45.00 right now. Won't offer the brand if you are hard set on Freud only. Jim.

    edit: Well, looks like the sale price is off...normal price is 51.90

    well jim, i have got one coming now but i will still answer you and feel that if you have a good alternative then others may like to know.. i have had excellent luck with the freuds, i have two other blades that are quality blades and the ripping one i have has stood up the best of any blade i have used. i have used cmt blades and some others as well.. but if something works aswell as this blade has for me i am going to stay with it if i could have found one of those gold ones like alan bienlien uses then i would have got it i listen to those who have actually used a blade and put it threw it courses ...thats whats nice about the forum folk if it works they tell you, if not they tell you that as well

    Almost sounds like you don't have a local sharpener or they are real busy.

    I got a good deal on a Freud GLR blade a few years back. Sears was having a sale buy 1 get one free. So a buddy of mine & I split the cost on that and the same deal on a drawer lock corner joint bit. I still haven't totally figured out the drawer bit. But the blade is great.

    Fair enough. I agree, if I'm happy with a product, I tend to want to stay with it. How much did the blade cost, if you don't mind me asking? Jim.
