Negative Hook Angle Miter Saw Blade
A blade specifically designed for use on a sliding miter saw will give you the best performance. The blade shown below is a 60 tooth, thin-kerf model. But whether you use a Freud blade or another brand, the most important feature is the negative 5° hook angle of the alternating top bevel teeth. This makes the blade much less likely to “grab” during a cut and will produce a smoother, chip-free edge.
