Heard a lot of good reviews of a saw blade called Diablo so I thought I would give one a try. As you can see my old blade gave up the ghost recently. I also got one of those metal beam holders to make it easier to cut long lumber. Both made short work of cutting 2x8x12s in half! The Diablo blade is so well balanced and vibration free i was hard to tell it was doing anything. It cut like butter with no drag on the engine. for being a rough lumber blade is cut super smooth! Ordered a fine cut blade to test out on finish lumber as I was so impressed.
Here is a link to the blade I used and the Plate Vice.
