Many of my tablesaw blades are made by Carbide Processors. Years ago I kinda fell in love with the longevity of the cermet II tips and I have them ground to .125" for my own reasons. One exception is a Freud P410 general purpose blade I picked up for general work. I clean my blades regularly and on the first cleaning of this Freud blade I saw this.

I cleaned the blade the way I have been cleaning blades for years; nothing special. I was fairly confident the blade was fine. If it was going to toss that tooth it would have done it by now. Still I contacted Freud just to confirm that I could put the blade back into service. After a few photos supplied per their request they deemed the blade good to go. They stated that the flaw was below their expected QA level and so offered me a new blade.

Beats a poke in the eye with a hot stick.

When I need a router bit in short order and can't get a Whiteside I grab a Freud.  Although a massive producer of various cutters they have always served me well.

Wow never seen that! Glad they took care of you. Freud is my go to TS blade.

I've got a handful of impact-rated drill bits. They're handy for quick pilot holes and house stuff where I don't really need to lug along a second tool. The hammer usually doesn't even kick in when drilling drywall or softwoods. Don't make the mistake of using a non-impact rated bit though... Learned that lesson the hard way.

I just use the drill when I don’t want to carry both. If I’m already drilling, the impact isn’t typically needed.

I guess i don't run many big screws 1-3/4" is the largest i use on any regular basis. Just tested the 12v impact. It's quick faster than my ancient 18v dewalt impact. The irony is the 18v 3 speed drill sunk a 3" #10 screw in pine the fastest out of the bunch.

Running 3 3" screws in and out the 12v impact dropped 1 battery bar.

It was either already right on the line or it will settle in and give better readings. My 12v milwaukees last a long time between charges.

Interesting must be a fluke because it just came off the charger earlier today.

Also interesting the 12v drill with these high output batteries is indistinguishable in speed on the #10 3"screw. I should find a lag and time them.
