Amana AGE Saw Blades Make Crosscuts and ArmorMAX Coating Prevents Rust
posted on by
Amana Saw Blades Amana's A.G.E. Blade Line comes in eight different varieties, covering most shop need and all featuring the ArmorMax coating.

Amana Tool’s expanded A.G.E line of German-made blades, introduced in the fall of 2010, features the company’s “ArmorMAX” formulation of PTFE coatings (polytetrafluoroethylene, for those who like big words) for a smooth, nonstick surface. PTFE coatings are seeing increased use in the woodworking world; their low friction characteristics make for smoother cutting, help prevent rust and allow for easier removal of pitch and other deposits. Amana notes that the laser-cut blade construction helps reduce vibration and noise.

Amana Saw Blade Amana's A.G.E. Saw Blades are coated with ArmorMax non-stick coating, which makes removing pitch easier than most other blades.

There are eight blades in the line: a 10" 50-tooth combination blade in both regular and thin-kerf versions, 10" 50-tooth cutoff/crosscut blade, 10" 60-tooth plywood/laminate blade, 10" 60-tooth thin-kerf miter saw blade and a 12" 96-tooth blade made especially for use in large sliding compound miter saws. Rounding out the line are two fine-cut crosscut/cutoffs in the A.G.E. “Finito” series, featuring a 10" 80-tooth and a 12" 96-tooth blade.

2011 prices for the regular A.G.E. ArmorMAX blades start at around $60, while the Finito blades start at about $72.
