I’m not sure if this is a pee in the wind post or a warning to others that expect expensive track saws and their new thin-kerf fast rip blades to be perfect solution to their sheet ripping needs, but I have to say that these blades are a huge source of frustration. Blade drift is a nightmare (specifically in hardwood and birch ply). Splinter strips last several cuts before the cut line has moved at least 1/2mm and bevel cuts are not accurate. I have used many finishing and ripping blades for my Mafell mt55 and makita plunge saws and they both have the same woeful performance from new, driven at slow pace. Has anybody experienced this or found any nice thick 160mm blades for the Mafell?
