659Re: [sawsmith] 1 inch arbor blades
- May 30, 2008Any Decent saw shop is able to punch arbor holes out.
Im a little lost here, My sawsmith is awaiting my attention in building a base for it. It is my understanding that these things use shopsmith accessories? Why not go onto ebay and get a 5/8" arbor adapter and be able to run whatever blade you want to?

Some manufacturer' s will bore them for you to your spec.
The best RAS blade is a Mr. Sawdust from Forrest. You won't find it on their
website. You'll have to call someone there to order it. If you're interested
let me know and I'll find the contact info for you.
Oldham makes a great RAS blade for about half what the Forrest Mr.
for. I have an 8" for my DeWalt GS as I think it's a little under powered and
that blade will cut most of what I need to. I bought one locally and took it
to the machine shop a local sharpening service uses to re-bore blades. The
re-bore cost me about $13 if memory serves.
