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!
Freud has customized their LU79R blade especially for track saws, giving this blade extra hook angle. The 5° hook angle allows for a smooth, easy cut with a handheld saw. At 160mm in diameter, this blade will fit the Festool TS-55 saw family, the DeWalt DWS520 track saw, and Makita SP600K track saw.
The Perma-SHIELD® coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD® blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.
The LU79R blade is also available in standard blade diameters.
