BSP Blue sawblade review

A review of the BSP Blue combination panel and solid timber blade from John Gallagher of Piece Contemporary Furniture

I recently received a BSP Blue 72 Teeth Fine cross cut blade from

Out of the box the blade looks much like any other. It has a good amount of carbide on it so I should get plenty of sharpening from it during the course of its life. I mainly work with solid timber and veneered board and put it straight to use on my MiniMax SC2 Classic table saw

The first week we were working with a lot 18mm birch ply with oak veneer on each side. The cut results were excellent leaving minimal sanding on the ply edges. Although I always use the scribing blade with veneer we tested it without and still got virtually no break out on the underside of the cut.

The next couple of weeks the blade mainly cut solid wood in various dimensions. Cutting through 50mm Tallow wood and 70mm Euro Beech gave an excellent finish on the end grain. Everything else we cut posed no problem, and it runs very quietly and vibration free.

I have used mainly Freud blades for many years and must say I would rate the BSP as every bit as well.
