The new Freud Fusion tablesaw blade, $99, provides a crosscut or rip cut, that's as smooth as a baby's… well, you know. Forty-tooth alternate top bevel (ATB) tablesaw blades like the Fusion aren't new, but the Freud blade provides a really outstanding performance. Regardless of whether you're cutting solid wood, veneered plywood or even melamine, there's no need to swap out blades each time you change operations. The Fusion provides crisp corners on the top and bottom of the material, and a silky-smooth edge.
