This blade's specially designed triple chip tooth design produces extremely smooth, true surfaces for gluing and finish work. There is no need for sanding or jointing after the cut. The ideal working range is from 1/8"" to 1"" thick. This blade also features laser cut anti-vibration slots, practically eliminating the vibration that resonates in standard blades. With this ultimate ripping blade, there is no need for stabilizers.The Perma-SHIELDA (R) coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELDA (R) blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.Also available with the economical Silver I.C.E (TM) coating.
