Amazon.com The 10-inch Freud LU87R010 Thin Kerf Rip Saw Blade makes quick work of ripping operations in hard- and softwood. It features 24 flat, oversized teeth with thick TiCo high-density carbide tips designed to last, in addition to Freud's Perma-SHIELD coating, which reduces friction to prevent heat buildup. Plus, since it's a thin-kerf blade, it wastes less material and continues to cut cleanly when used with underpowered saws.Large-Tooth, Thin-Kerf Blade Ideal for Low-Horsepower SawsThis rip saw blade is ideally suited to ripping hard- and softwoods, and it also delivers strong results when crosscutting wood or working with plywood. Ideal for working with materials that are 3/4 to 2-3/4 inches thick, the blade can also handle thinner or thicker materials, and it can be used to cut chipboard or laminates. 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 0.094 kerf.In addition to offering faster cuts through tough materials, its large tooth design allows the blade to be safely sharpened more times, prolonging the life of the blade and saving you money. Plus the large gullets between these teeth ensure easy chip removal.Well-Balanced, Anti-Vibration DesignThis Freud blade is pretensioned for truer cuts under heavy loads. It also features an anti-vibration design that reduces chatter for a cleaner finish, longer blade life, and reduced noise while you work. And because the blade is laser cut from high-strength steel, you can trust that it will stay stable, flat, and true, even after prolonged use.High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting PerformanceThis thin-kerf rip saw blade's 24 teeth are finished with tips made from an application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "ripping blend" that offers improved density, hardness, corrosion resistance, and heat resistance.Ideal for the demands of ripping large quantities of thick, hard wood, this carbide blend includes extra cobalt for increased impact resistance. Plus, it delivers increased sharpness and edge retention, which means the blade will hold up longer--saving you 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. It also means less downtime for blade cleaning, so you get jobs done faster.This industrial saw blade is backed by Freud's limited lifetime warranty.About Freud: A History of Innovative ManufacturingAn industry leader for more than 50 years, Freud America, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of superior carbide cutting tools for the woodworking industry.
