You may have heard or read about Final Cut’s 10” and 12” saw blades that feature adhesive-backed sandpaper on both faces. The thickness of the abrasive disks extends slightly beyond the kerf, so the blades both cut and sand workpieces in the same operation. The company says that each cut produces a fine finish on both the offcut and the workpiece, which eliminates the need for further sanding.
Given the popularity of these sawing/sanding blades, Final Cut has now extended their product line to include a new 7-1/4″ size designed to fit standard circular saws. It sells for $19.95. The 24-tooth blade is carbide-tipped, and it comes with two 100-grit sanding disks applied. The sandpaper has a pressure-sensitive backing and, like the other Final Cut blades, the sanding disks are replaceable.
