In many woodworking shops, one saw must serve multiple purposes. It must rip a piece of 4/4 oak and also crosscut a sheet of 3/4" plywood. The groups of five teeth include one flat tooth for ripping, followed by four alternate top bevel teeth for crosscutting and a large gullet for effective chip clearance. This blade also features laser cut anti-vibration slots, practically eliminating the vibration that resonates in standard blades. With this ultimate combination blade, there is no need for stabilizers. The Silver I.C.E. (Industrial Cooling Element) coating helps resist heat build-up up to two times longer than standard, polished steel blades. The extra protection from heat stress and pitch build-up helps reduce drag, extending the life of your blade and saw motor. Also available with the premium Perma-SHIELD coating.
