Can a Miter-Saw Blade Be Used on a Tablesaw?
I have a 10-in. miter saw with a thin-kerf, 60-tooth blade. Can I use that blade to cut shop-made inlay on my tablesaw?

Yes, you can. However, since your miter-saw blade is thin-kerf, you might need to change the tablesaw’s splitter. If the splitter is thicker than the blade, the workpiece will get caught on it and you’ll be unable to feed it through.
Also, some miter-saw blades have a negative hook angle on their teeth. Used in a miter saw, this geometry forces the workpiece down onto the table and against the fence. On a tablesaw, it tends to lift the workpiece. Use a long push board and apply downward force to overcome it.
