Description

The LU80 saw blade provides flawless, chipfree edges in veneered plywoods, fine moldings, melamine, laminates, and crosscuts in solid woods. Using advanced technology, Freud developed this line of saw blades that features laser-cut, anti-vibration slots that practically eliminate the vibrations that resonate in standard blades. The combination of High ATB tooth design and anti-vibration slots makes these blades the ultimate finish blades. The result is a cut so smooth it eliminates the need for stabilizer or a scoring blade. Also available in 12" for full kerf, and in thin kerf in 7-1/4", 10", and 12".

WOOD magazine review

Splinter-free cuts in sheet goods

Review Summary

Few materials prove as finicky or frustrating to cut as splinter-prone hardwood-veneered plywood or melamine-coated particleboard. Rather than sand, patch, or hide tear-out, pick up a Freud Ultimate Plywood & Melamine Blade (thin and standard kerf models available). The 40° alternate top bevel (ATB) angle on the teeth—twice as steep as most crosscutting blades—shears the wood cleanly, leaving splinter-free cuts.
And the high tooth count (96 teeth for 12"-diameter blades, 80 for 10", and 60 for 7-1/4") means each tooth takes a tiny bite. This blade is a must-have for anyone who demands splinter-free cuts in sheet goods.
