  1. Is this the blade [CMT P07540 7-1/4″ 40 Teeth 1/16″ kerf] you have used with your table saw to cut splines in boxes? I thought I saw one of your vids where you used this blade, or one like it, to cut splines. And as you have a SawStop table saw, did you need to disable the brake to use this blade?

    1. Hi Robert, That CMT 7-1/4 blade will not work in a SawStop. Even with a dado cartridge in there, it’s still too far away and cannot disable the mechanism. I use it on my Delta saw.

  2. With regard to use with a SawStop, are you saying that it will work on the SawStop but the brake won’t work? Or are you saying it won’t fit on the SawStop, period?
