Product Description & Reviews
Using advanced technology, Freud developed the LU79 thin kerf line of saw blades provides flawless, chip-free edges in veneered plywoods, fine moldings, melamine, laminates, and crosscuts in solid woods. Using advanced technology, Freud developed the LU79 thin kerf line of saw blades that features laser-cut, anti-vibration slots that practically eliminate the vibrations that resonate in standard blades. This blade provides flawless, chip-free edges in veneered plywoods, fine moldings, melamine, laminates, and crosscuts in solid woods. The combination of Hi-ATB tooth design and anti-vibration slots makes these thin kerf blades the ultimate finish blades. The result is a cut so smooth it eliminates the need for a stabilizer or a scoring blade! The 12-inch Freud LU79R012 Thin Kerf Ultimate Plywood and Melamine Saw Blade is a heavy-duty blade that delivers a precise, chip-free finish when cutting through everything from veneered plywood to melamine countertops and hardwood molding. Featuring 96 teeth with TiCo high-density carbide tips and Perma-SHIELD, which helps reduce heat buildup and friction, this durable thin-kerf blade is built to stay true, delivering accurate cuts over the long haul.LU79R012 Thin Kerf Ultimate Plywood and Melamine Saw BladeAt a Glance:Ideal for melamine, laminates, plywood, and crosscutting hardwood; handles materials 1/4 to 1-5/8 inches thickHeavy-duty plate with laser-cut, anti-vibration slotsTough Perma-SHIELD coating reduces friction and heat buildupTechnical Specs:CoatingPerma-SHIELDDiameter12"Teeth96 Hi-ATBArbor1"Kerf (K).098Plate (P).071Wall ThicknessThin Kerf allows for faster feed rate and reduced wasteFreud-Made TiCo Carbide specifically designed to cut nonferrous metals extends tooth lifeHi-ATB Teeth offer Versatility and Clean FinishesThis thin-kerf blade's 96-tooth, high-alternating-top-bevel (Hi-ATB) configuration features a large number of small teeth that face both left and right--a setup that ensures clean crosscuts and splinter-free finishes, even when working with hard-to-handle materials like laminates. This setup paired with Freud's anti-vibration technology results in cuts so smooth that they eliminate the need for a stabilizer or a scoring blade.This blade is designed for optimal performance when cutting materials that are 1/4 to 1-5/8 inches thick, including hard- and softwood, chipboard, plywood, laminates, and melamine. The blade can also handle ripping wood, and it can tackle thinner or thicker materials. However, some loss of surface finish may occur when it is used outside its ideal range. It has a 1-inch arbor and produces a 0.098 kerf.Well-Balanced, Anti-Vibration DesignThis Freud blade is precision balanced and pretensioned for truer cuts under heavy loads. It also features laser-cut, anti-vibration slots that reduce chatter for a cleaner finish, longer blade life, and reduced noise while you work--a feature that's especially important when working with plywood or laminates. And because the entire blade is laser cut from high-strength steel, you can trust that it will stay stable, flat, and true, even after prolonged use.High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting PerformanceThis thin-kerf saw blade's 96 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud's application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "crosscut blend." Formulated to help the blade maintain a sharp cutting edge in the face of demanding crosscut applications, this blend is extra hard--due to including more high-density tungsten carbide than other TiCo blends--and it still offers the full mix of improved corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and impact resistance that you expect from TiCo.With teeth that start out sharper and deliver improved edge retention, the blade can go longer between sharpening, and will hold up longer--saving you time and money.Perma-SHIELD Coating Reduces Friction and Heat BuildupBuilt to withstand tough use in less-than-ideal conditions, this blade is finished with Freud's red Perma-SHIELD--a non-stick coating that reduces friction and nearly eliminates the heat buildup that excess friction can cause. By providing complete thermal insulation, this coating protects your tools and your work surface. And it resists binding when the blade is used for large-volume cutting applications, which reduces blade warp.As a lubricating feature, Perma-SHIELD allows the blade to spin freely while reducing stress on the motor and carriage of your saw. In addition, this coating helps prevent debris collection and resin or "pitch" buildup. Since gummy pitch buildup causes extra drag on the motor of your saw, less buildup is another little convenience that translates into longer tool life and longer blade life. It also means less downtime for blade cleaning, so you get jobs done faster.This industrial saw blade is backed by Freud's limited lifetime warranty.About Freud: A History of Innovative ManufacturingAn industry leader for more than 50 years, Freud America, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of superior carbide cutting tools for the woodworking industry.
