    Got the dry graphite today and looked at blades. A new model of fine tooth carbide specifically for PVC, laminate plywood, wood and melamine (all the stuff I'm likely to want to cut) was $60 for a 10" blade. The 8"circular saw blades rated the same speed or higher with the same size mounting hole that can handle the same material are only like $20. The manual says I can use blades smaller than 10" but does this mean I can use an 8" one for the circular saw?

    not sure what you mean circular saw is this a diff saw than the table saw , and if yes then yes you can use your blades in different saws .
    wow 60.00 sounds very expensive , might check ebay .
    your very good at finding deals there , better than i, anyhoo.

    A circular saw is the hand held one that takes the round blades similar to a table saw:

    I got a 10" 36 tooth carbide tipped combination blade with the saw but the manual says a finer toothed blade will give smoother cuts and Home Depot had that one for those special materials, but I wonder how much better the cutting really is, $60 better worth? I will be sanding the cuts anyway....

    are there any blades , that have more teeth , and aren't as much, i would not waste my $'s on that blade .I know with some plastics they suggest turning the blade in reverse when you install it to make smoother cuts , if you try this be careful to keep the piece held firmly to the table, and go slow.

    The manual says to only install the blade in the proper rotating position indicated on the blade so I don't want to try anything I'm not supposed to.

    It just doesn't specify that the blade has to say "table saw" only that it has to be rated for 5400 RPM or higher and have the 5/8" arbor hole. Most blades I looked at today are 6000 - 10000 RPM some say table saw, miter and cross cut others just say miter and so on. I noticed the table saw blades are thicker/heavier than the others.

    There are 10" blades on ebay for $12 - 30 but I didn't get the name/model # of the one I was looking at so I'll have to go back.

    yea if your not comfortable dont turn in reverse ,i did it on my siding for my shed , but that was just vinyl so it was very thin, as compared to your PVC boards and such , just get as many teeth as possible , and personally i wouldnt pay more than 30 to 35 dollars,
    you'll find one. i use this blade for all my plywood cuts , and when i need a nice clean cut, and its the one i used in reverse on the vinyl siding. I've never treated it with anything, and have had it for several years , it has been kept inside though and has never gotten wet, im sure there are much nicer ones out there , but this is a fairly nice blade , it'll do the trick for you, the PVC isnt going to dull the blade anyway. not for a long long time.
    I'm not sure what i paid as I don't have the receipt anymore, but if it was 60 dollars it would not be here.LOL
    dont get caught up in the hype Josh ie t-5: , just buy something in the medium range price and quality , and you'll be happy

    Thanks Jimmy where did you find that blade? A local toolshop? I went to Home Depot and all they have is carbide blades. I'm going to go to the giant Menards where I got the saw and look at their blade selection, IIRC they had one side of a whole aisle with just round saw blades. HD across the highway from me only has a dozen or so and nothing under $49.99 in the table saw area.
