Advise for TS 75 blades used upside down in CMS module
« on: March 20, 2020, 08:33 AM »
As title says, I’m looking for advise regarding blade choice for the TS 75 used in TS 75 CMS module.

Key points:
1. Will be used most for: Ripping soft wood
2. Cross cut in most wood types including plywood - not critical quality; have Precisio CS for that.
3. Festool blades are first choice, but considering (lack of alternatives..?) other makes.

I’ve noticed that the Panther blade is receiving many good words, but there is the universal blade, and the standard blade, 18 tooth.
DeWalt has some 210mm blades that fit, but they are thinner than the 2,6mm Festool Standard.

Even that this is for the TS 75 I imagine it will be quite equal to the choices for TS 55 as well.

Thanks,
Stig

For ripping I use the panther blade. Very easy fast cut but not perfectly smooth.

I have used all three blades, standard, 36 tooth? , and panther blade in module.

For ripping I would suggest 36 tooth? or panther. If you use 36 tooth?, slow down your feed rate.
Cuts I have gotten from panther are not glue ready, 36 tooth? are glue ready or very close with a slower feed rate.
My opinion only.
