10 inch Carbide-Tipped
Thin-Kerf Saw Blades
10-inch Carbide-Tipped Thin-Kerf Blades Slice Smoothly Through the
Hardest Woods and Require Less Frequent Sharpening than Steel Blades
Thin Kerfs Make the Difference
These carbide-tipped blades deliver a narrower 3/32" kerf... unlike many blades that take a kerf of 1/8" or more. As a result, Shopsmith blades cut quickly and efficiently and require less horsepower than many competitive blades.
These Shopsmith blades feature expansion slots to minimize vibration giving you a cleaner cut. They'll also reducing noise the blade produces.
The Trade-Off Between Rip, Crosscut and Combination Blade Types
Before making your blade selection, it's important to know that there are compromises. Although combination blades deliver excellent cuts in most situations, the best cuts are produced by job-specific blades.
Ripping's large chip size requires deep gullets that quickly remove lots of waste. With more space consumed by the gullets, ripping blades have fewer teeth. Smooth crosscuts make fine dust, so more teeth and shallower gullets produce the best results. If your projects frequently require a large volume of continuous crosscutting or ripping, it stands to reason that you'll enjoy faster cutting and smoother results by using a purpose-specific cross-cut or rip blade.
However, if most of your projects require that you frequently switch back-and-forth between crosscutting and ripping, the minimal trade-off in cut quality that comes with using a combination blade could quickly pay you back in terms of saved blade-changing time.
10-inch Carbide-Tipped Combination Blade
This 50-tooth blade delivers super-smooth cuts when cross-cutting or ripping. It's 40 alternate bevel ground teeth are designed for crosscutting. They slice through the wood fibers fast and are separated by shallow gullets for the optimal crosscutting efficiency.
The 10 flat top ground teeth handle your ripping tasks. They will chisel through the stock rapidly and are separated by long, deep gullets to eliminate the large amount of waste that's produced. This all-purpose blade will soon become your favorite. C-4 carbide. Use 1-1/4-inch arbor. Standard with Mark V since 1996.
