You'll find when you manage to replace the blade that you may have to adjust the laser. If it wont adjust get rid of it and use the blade as your guide by lowering the blade prior to pulling the trigger to match the line you wish to cut.

It sounds like you have the same Mitre Saw as me. An excellent tool for the price once you change the blade and realsise the laser is not much use.

This is the blade I have been using for the past year or so.

Hi Gareth, welcome to the forum,

First the bad news;

A 210mm  24 tooth blade is for rip sawing and not cross cutting and should not IMHO be used in a mitre saw.
Why do they put one in? Because they are cheap Sad

I've had a look and can't find a blade the same size as the one you have.

Now the good news;

As it is in a mitre saw you could use a blade which is slightly smaller than supplied and Screwfix sell a 205mm 60 tooth blade with an 18mm bore for 21.99. Some Screwfix own brand is v poor so I can't recommend it but it is an option.

I would go for a saw blade reducing bush from Axminster power tools part no SBB018 for 1.88
http://www.axminster.co.uk/default.asp?part=SBB018

This will allow you to buy any blade sized between 200mm and 210mm with a 30mm bore.

For instance,

Perform 200mm 48tooth  11.52  Axminster
Freud    210mm 40tooth  26.95 Rutlands

Hi Gareth, If that's the one with the laser then I will have the same trouble getting a replacement blade.
I had no problems with mine. As with most saws you get breakout underneath so put a piece of scrap under the workpiece to support the cut as it comes through.
I have a few lengths of 6mm ply ripped down to suppport the work. Just feed it in slightly after each cut.
I hope this helps.

heellloo gareth and welcome

the more teeth the finer the cut

18 is an unusual size you just put a shims in
if you notice on some blades they say
for example 16 25 30 what this means is it
has a 30mm hole and shims[washers]to
reduce to 25 and 16
so its not a problem just wait till later today
for compus mentus answers

they will come thick and fast

Hi and welcome Gareth , its great to have you here Grin

Not to sure on the best blade to buy so won't offer any advice that will not benefit you.

There will be other joiners popping in all the time so hang around and they will give you the best advice.

Welcome again

Replacement Saw blade
Apr 12th, 2004, 12:06am
 
Hi All

Great idea this forum, I will be a regular viewer. I am an enthusiastic DIY'er with a passion for power tools. I was bought a Performance Pro Mitre saw from B&Q last year and it came with a 24tooth blade. I am finally getting round to using it on good quality timber (rather than rough stuff for garden fencing etc). The problem is the blade rips the crap out of the wood on cross cuts. I clearly need a better blade so what blade is best for cross cuts in softwood? Also the size seems to be non standard it is a 210mm blade with a 18mm hole. I cannot find anything but 16mm or 30mm. Help please.

Cheers

Gareth
