Amazon.com The 10-inch Freud LU85R010 Ultimate Cut-Off Saw Blade delivers fast, accurate crosscuts and leaves glass-smooth finishes that eliminate the need for sanding. Featuring 80 teeth with alternating bevels and TiCo high-density carbide tips, a unique side-grind setup that polishes material as you cut through it, and Freud's insulating, Perma-SHIELD coating, this blade is built to deliver top results over the long haul.LU85R010 Ultimate Cut-Off Saw BladeAt a Glance:Ideal for smooth crosscuts in materials that are 1/4 to 1-5/8 inches thickHeavy-duty plate with laser-cut, anti-vibration slotsTough Perma-Shield coating reduces friction and heat buildupTechnical Specs:CoatingPerma-SHIELDDiameter10"Teeth80 ATBArbor5/8"Kerf (K).116Plate (P).098Depth of CutUnique Side Grind polishes the material to produce a superior finishLaser-Cut Anti-Vibration Slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut extending blade life, and giving a crisp, flawless finishATB Teeth with Side-Grinding for Glass-Smooth FinishesThis cut-off blade's 80-tooth alternating-top-bevel (ATB) configuration features teeth that face both left and right--a versatile setup that's ideal for crosscuts in hard- and softwood, as well as general use. And thanks to the unique side-grind on each tooth, the blade smoothes work surfaces as it cuts through them. This leaves you with a super-smooth, high-quality finish that doesn't need to be sanded down.This blade is designed for optimal performance when crosscutting wood that is 1/4 to 1-5/8 inches thick or when cutting chipboard and plywood that is less than 1-inch thick. The blade can also handle ripping wood and working with laminate, and it can tackle thinner or thicker materials. However, some loss of surface finish may occur when it is used outside its ideal range. It has a 5/8-inch arbor and produces a 0.116 kerf.Well-Balanced, Anti-Vibration DesignThis Freud blade is precision balanced and pretensioned for truer cuts under heavy loads. It also features laser-cut, anti-vibration slots that reduce chatter for a cleaner finish, longer blade life, and reduced noise while you work. And because the entire blade is laser cut from high-strength steel, you can trust that it will stay stable, flat, and true, even after prolonged use. Furthermore, this well-balanced, anti-vibration design means there's no need to use add-on stabilizers with this blade.High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting PerformanceThis cut-off saw blade's 80 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud's application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "crosscut blend." Formulated to help the blade maintain a sharp cutting edge in the face of demanding crosscut applications, this blend is extra hard--due to including more high-density tungsten carbide than other TiCo blends--and it still offers the full mix of improved corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and impact resistance that you expect from TiCo.With teeth that start out sharper and deliver improved edge retention, the blade can go longer between sharpening. and will hold up longer--saving you time and money.Perma-SHIELD Coating Reduces Friction and Heat BuildupBuilt to withstand tough use in less-than-ideal conditions, this blade is finished with Freud's red Perma-SHIELD--a non-stick coating that reduces friction and nearly eliminates the heat buildup that excess friction can cause. By providing complete thermal insulation, this coating protects your tools and your work surface. And it resists binding when the blade is used for large-volume cutting applications, which reduces blade warp.As a lubricating feature, Perma-SHIELD allows the blade to spin freely while reducing stress on the motor and carriage of your saw. In addition, this coating helps prevent debris collection and resin or "pitch" buildup. Since gummy pitch buildup causes extra drag on the motor of your saw, less buildup is another little convenience that translates into longer tool life and longer blade life.
