Ok I know its a minefield out there when looking for replacement blades, I am looking for a good 210mm x 30 blade for my Dw 7485 table saw, I don't mind swapping blades for ripping and crosscutting if that's what it takes, or a very good all rounder, I'm looking for a good finish to the cuts, any help of advice would be great, Oh one more thing can these blades be sharpened and if so is it worth it ?

Is it strictly 210 or 216 can be fitted?

I use a Freud 216mm combo blade for all my cuts. Rips are very good with the right feed rate, but cross cuts are amazing!
Cost me about mid £20ish I think. A year on and still going (Hobby use, of course, cutting mainly hardwood)

freud is a good shout, FFX do 210 x 30 by 40t, 30t and 16t all well priced (the 16 tooth is £15)

When you say combo blade do you mean 40 teeth Im in the market for exactly that and even though i watched the excellent axminster youtube on blades still a little bit confused as to what to get - at the moment Im generally cutting ply and ripping wood while i build my workshop-i have a 60t freud for close work??

I buy my blades from Cutting Solutions, not the cheapest but there is lots of carbide there to be re-sharpened.
Drop them an email very helpful, don't know how up to date the web-site is!!!

I would second the use of Cutting Solutions. I bough a Rip and Fine cross cut blade for my Startrite TA145 from them. Very high quality blades, both made in Germany and no problems.
