Here's an indispensable table saw accessory for cutting tenons, bridle joints and spline slots. It allows workpieces to be held safely on end, and a micro-adjust feature ensures pinpoint blade accuracy. Best of all, you can build this jig from scrap and save more than $100 over the cost of buying a commercial tenoning jig.
This heavy-duty thin kerf blade is good for crosscutting thick hardwoods and softwoods and thinner stock materials. The ideal working range is from 3/4" to 3-1/2" thick for crosscutting, and 1/4" to 1" thick for ripping. Thinner or thicker material may be cut, but some loss of surface finish may occur.The Perma-SHIELD coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD 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.The LU86R006M20 blade is for Festool, DeWalt, and Makita track saws.
