Delta Full Kerf Melamine Saw Blade's Hollow-Ground Teeth Cuts Plastic Laminate and More
posted on April 1, 2011 by AJ Hamler
Delta's full kerf melamine blades have hollow grind teeth with clipped corners to make smoother cuts on difficult to saw materials.

If you don’t cut melamine-coated stock often, you probably just use the regular blade already in your table saw. Happy with the results? Nah, I didn’t think so. You probably got more chips than a bag of Fritos®.

Melamine cut with Delta blade Delta's melamine saw blade makes short work of cuts for not only melamine, but plastic laminate as well.

Blades dedicated for cutting melamine and laminates are designed to cut with a minimum of chipping and tearout. Delta’s new full-kerf melamine blade features 60 hollow-ground teeth — the teeth have a concave appearance on the face and tip — set at a low hook angle of 10°. The hollow grind, low hook angle, high tooth count, and the fact that the teeth have the corners cut off, all combine to give extremely clean cuts in chip-prone melamine. Be careful with this blade — it cuts so cleanly that fresh cuts can leave razor-sharp edges on the melamine.

The new line of blades comes in four versions: 10", 12", 220mm and 300mm. Prices start at about $85.
