Woodworkers looking for a premium blade to cut veneered plywood and melamine board should give Freud’s new Cabinetmaker’s Crosscut Blades a closer look. Now updated with a new 38-degree high ATB (alternate top bevel) tooth grind and the addition of Freud’s Perma-SHIELD® non-stick coating, these blades are designed for making clean cuts in double-sided veneered plywood and melamine, plus hardwood and softwood. The teeth have a 10-degree positive hook angle for fast cutting and easy feeding, and their laser-cut blade bodies are precision tensioned with computer controlled equipment, in order to ensure that they will spin flat and true. Freud also provides its proprietary blend of TiCo™ Hi-Density Carbide for maximum performance.
The new Cabinetmaker’s Crosscut Blades are available in two sizes: the 10-in.-diameter, 60-tooth LU73R010 ($49.50) and the 12-in. LU73R012 ($69.49), which has 72 teeth. Arbor holes on these blades are 5/8-in. and 1-in., respectively. The blades are designed for use in miter saws, radial arm saws and table saws.
