Makes Smooth, Razor-Sharp Finish Cuts in Wood
Achieving attractive results when constructing finish work such as decks, fences, and shelving is all about clean, accurate cuts. The Freud D0740A makes this process easy, fast, and precise. Offering a smoother edge than framing blades, this finishing blade is constructed for effective cutting speed and long life.

Trim carpenters, fine cabinetmakers, and avid do-it-yourselfers will want to keep this blade on hand for jobs that call for ripping or making finish crosscuts. Appropriate application materials include hardwood, softwood, plywood, and fascia board.

Produces Smooth, Quiet Cuts with Laser-Cut Kerf
The Freud D0740A's clean-cutting design means that you can enjoy the comfort of smooth performance. The thin 0.59-inch kerf between the blade's 40 ATB (alternate-top bevel) teeth is laser cut to provide ease of feed, so you have more control over the blade's position. This helps maximize both the accuracy of the cut and the efficiency of your work, so you can enjoy a job well done and the ability to complete more tasks in less time.

An added bonus, the blade's laser-cut stabilizer vents reduce noise and vibration during operation, keeping your work environment more relaxed and your hands more in control. This feature also reduces friction and warping, helping to extend the blade's cutting life.

Features Shock-Resistant Carbide for Long-Lasting Precision
So you can count on it over the long term, the Freud D0740A is designed for durability. The blade's hardy teeth are protected by Freud's exclusive shock-resistant TiCo Hi-Density Carbide formula, which helps fight wear and tear and maintains blade sharpness up to four times longer than standard carbide. And protecting the blade is Perma-Shield Non-Stick Coating that provides resistance to heat and corrosion.

Fits Circular Saws
The Freud D0724A is a great addition to your workshop because it's designed with the versatility to fit a variety of circular saws, including portable varieties.

By G. Conner TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 30, 2009
After reading several other reviews I thought this information would be helpful.

Some users report short-life from this blade. That may be true under certain circumstances, but it usually isn't the blade's fault. Here's how you can get cleaner, safer, smoother cuts and MUCH more life from this or any other good blade.

1- Keep it clean. "pitch" --- that gummy residue from wood--- increases friction and heat. There are several products marketed specifically for keeping blades clean. They work fine, but I have found that no product works better than rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is inexpensive and widely available at any pharmacy. I will assume anyone reading this is careful enough to UNPLUG THE SAW before cleaning the blade or making any other adjustment.

2- Material considerations... Cutting plywood is tough on any blade because plywood has multiple layers of glue. Glue heats up and gets sticky FAST. Long rips and multiple rips make the blade hot anyway, and a hot blade melts glue faster than a cool blade. So just be aware, ANY BLADE from any manufacturer will wear faster in plywood.

3- Lubrication... You can minimize friction with a light coat of paste-wax or paraffin. You don't need to be perfectly even in the application of either. A quick dab of wax or a few strokes with the paraffin stick will quickly spread itself in about one-second into the first cut. Lube both sides of the blade roughly equally to reduce warping, and don't forget to lube the teeth. Once you make the first cut, the wax or paraffin will spread evenly everywhere and the excess will disappear.

Again... please UNPLUG THE SAW when you lubricate the blade. I have seen some pros turn their saws upside down and hold a paraffin stick against the running blade.

I have had really good luck with Diablo 7.25" blades on my DeWalt circular saw. The thin kerf really seems to make a difference: these are really easy to push through the material. Nice clean cuts. And they clean up pretty easily, too. I've used the 40T and 24T blades with good results.

I have to say that the gentleman who gave the saw blade maintenance tips was very thourough and spot on. These blades do not dissapoint if you watch for the red flags. Red flag # 1, burning and smoking of the blade. The majority of the time this is caused from glue resin being melted onto the blade and in no way is evidence of the blade being dull unless you have used it for an extended period of time. A quick clean up of the blade with a rag and some rubbing alchohol takes care of the problem. As far as lubing the blade, I have found it cans be as simple as hitting it with a few drops of olive oil and you are in business. Red Flag # 2. I only recently discovered the importance of keeping a perfect 90 degree perpendicular to the cutting surface path. It takes a little extra time, but it is amazing how far off your saw can get tweaked without you even considering that could be a problem. Don't trust your saw, check it with a square and adjust accordingly. You will be amazed at what a difference it can make and how much better not only your blade life is, but quality of the cut. I was baffled when I checked my saw for square (which I always thought was perfect, because I am so awesome! Not.) These are things that I used to take for granted before. The design of these blades and the kerf design allows these blades to cut through just about any wood product with ease and negligible tear-out. For the price it is a no brainer. I have diablos in both my table saw and Mitre saw and now in my worm drive circular saw. (going on a straight year of continuous use of all blades) When you smell smoke and see shmagma on the blade do the simple fix and take 10 seconds to hit the blade with some rubbing alchohol, rub down for another 10 seconds with olive oil and your problem will be solved. Cheap simple fixes that 90 percent of us user's fail to consider. Happy cutting.

Fantastic blade! For ~$15 you can't go wrong on this- and it's not made in China.

While you can't beat these Diablo blades for cross cuts and short rips, if you plan on any long or repetitive ripping, LOOK ELSEWHERE. Specifically, as with all thin kerf blades I've tried, there is no escaping the warp and wander once it heats up. The only solution for long ripping duty is a heavy, WIDE blade. I've tried half a dozen brands, and regardless of the cute little heat dissapation cuts and grooves built in, they all fail the warp test. However, for the short haul, particularly circular saw use, vs. the table saw, it's a good cutting blade.

The thin kerf reduces the workload on the saw, but on a long cut, or several repetitive cuts, heat buildup can cause a small amount of wander, but it's very manageable. I have found the blades are "disposable" - they cost more to resharpen than to replace.

Very happy with cut smoothness and overall performance.
