    Biscuit joiner blades

    Last time I was using my Dewalt biscuit joiner I noticed it was getting a little harder to plunge. It dawned on me that I have the original blade in it after 8 years. Looking on Amazon, it looks like CMT and Freud both make replacement blades, which are half the price of the Dewalt. Anyone used either of these blades or want to recommend another?

    Thanks

    I bought a Freud replacement blade for my DW plate joiner a couple of years ago. Cuts like buttah! I'd say it's even better than the original blade when it was new, but I can't remember that far back anymore!

    Cool, Thanks! Did you get a 6 or 8 tooth blade, just wondering what the difference would be too.

    I have the Freud also and I believe the slots are a much better fit than the stock De Walt blade
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Straight from my order history, this is the one I got. I went with the 8-tooth, figuring it would be a little smoother and it was only a couple bucks more than the 6-tooth.
