|Depth of Cut|
The extra-large, flat teeth featured on this blade leave a smooth, splinter-free finish that eliminates the need for sanding and jointing. This large-tooth design also allows the blade to be safely sharpened more times, prolonging the life of the blade and saving you money. And the large gullets between these teeth ensure easy chip removal.
Well-Balanced, Anti-Vibration Design
This Freud blade is precision balanced and pretensioned for truer cuts under heavy loads. It also features laser-cut, anti-vibration slots that reduce chatter for a cleaner finish, longer blade life, and reduced noise while you work. And because the entire blade is laser cut from high-strength steel, you can trust that it will stay stable, flat, and true, even after prolonged use.
High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting Performance
This heavy-duty rip saw blade's 24 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud's application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "ripping blend." This blend offers a mix of improved density, hardness, corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and impact resistance that's ideally matched to the demands of ripping large quantities of thick, hard wood.
With teeth that start out sharper and deliver improved edge retention, the blade can go longer between sharpening, and will hold up longer--once again, saving you time and money.
Perma-SHIELD Coating Reduces Friction and Heat Buildup
Built to withstand tough use in less-than-ideal conditions, this blade is finished with Freud's red Perma-SHIELD--a non-stick coating that reduces friction and nearly eliminates the heat buildup that excess friction can cause. By providing complete thermal insulation, this coating protects your tools and your work surface. And it resists binding when the blade is used for large-volume cutting applications, which reduces blade warp.
As a lubricating feature, Perma-SHIELD allows the blade to spin freely while reducing stress on the motor and carriage of your saw. In addition, this coating helps prevent debris collection and resin or "pitch" buildup. Since gummy pitch buildup causes extra drag on the motor of your saw, less buildup is another little convenience that translates into longer tool life and longer blade life. It also means less downtime for blade cleaning, so you get jobs done faster.
This industrial saw blade is backed by Freud's limited lifetime warranty.
About Freud: A History of Innovative Manufacturing
An industry leader for more than 50 years, Freud America, Inc. is a manufacturer and marketer of superior carbide cutting tools for the woodworking industry. Freud is one of the few manufacturers of woodworking tools in the world that produces its own MicroGrain Carbide with Titanium, called TiCo, a high-density combination of Titanium and Cobalt.
By producing their own carbide, Freud has the unique ability to formulate each tool for each specific application, thereby maximizing the cutting life and performance of the tool. Freud's full line of high-quality, woodworking tools includes saw blades, router bits, shaper cutters, power tools, and more.
What's in the Box
Freud LM72R010 Heavy-Duty Rip Saw Blade with Perma-SHIELD--10-inch diameter, 5/8-inch arbor, 24-tooth design.
Freud's industrial saw blades are carefully crafted using the best materials, the most innovative designs, and the industry's most sophisticated manufacturing processes. Every blade is specifically designed for superior performance and maximum life. Select the best blade for your application from a wide variety of designs and sizes, all featuring Freud's unique coatings and TiCo Hi-Density Carbide.
TiCo Hi-Density carbide is a specially formulated, highly compact Titanium Cobalt Carbide engineered and manufactured by Freud to maximize performance on all Freud cutting tools. Designed in Freud research and development laboratories, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density carbide is scientifically developed using Titanium Carbide, Cobalt and Tungsten (as well as proprietary elements), to produce a supreme product. Carbide size is extremely important when it comes to sharpness as well as the rate at which an edge wears. The larger the carbide grain, the faster an edge will wear. While standard carbides measure as large as 5 microns, and an advanced micrograin carbide can measure 1 micron, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density Carbide is miniscule in comparison at .8 microns, with a laminate blend as small as .4 microns.
Finally a ftg saw blade that doesn't cost an arm and a hundred. Works great, and the price was right!Published 2 days ago by Elmer Palmer
I needed a blade to create flat bottomed grooves and 1/8 " kerfs, as opposed to the nearly now universal. 3/32 thin kerfs. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Sam Cochran
This blade is advertised as having Freud's I.C.E. coating. There is not indication on the package or blade that this is true. From looking at photos of other Freud I.C.E. Read morePublished 11 days ago by William Brandt Belknap
Excellent ripping blade for table saws requiring a full 1/8" kerf. I have only used the blade for about 50 linear feet of ripping oak, but it did the job well. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Senior Software Designer
Love it. Well build. Solid. Sharp. Leaves a nice square bottom cut. Just what I needed.Published 1 month ago by Rizz
