Professional-Grade Design for Accurate Glue Line Cuts
Offering fast, "glue line" precision cuts and an anti-kickback design, this heavy-duty rip saw blade handles tough industrial ripping tasks without requiring you to add any stabilizers to your setup. It's ideal for working with hard- or softwoods that are 3/4 to 2-3/4 inches thick, and it can be used in gang-rip operations. This versatile blade handles crosscuts with chipboard, plywood, or laminate, and can tackle thinner or thicker materials. However, some loss of surface finish may occur when it is used outside its ideal range. It has a 5/8-inch arbor and produces a 0.126 kerf.

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.

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.

Style Name: 10-Inch 24 Tooth FTG Ripping Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
This is an awesome blade as far as cutting performance goes. It is very sharp and cuts very well. The teflon coating really works to alleviate binding and helps it to run cooler. The teeth are nice and beefy for resharpening. The only thing I don't like is that the carbide is either ground too sharp or it's too brittle. I don't really know. What I do know is that I keep finding chips on the teeth when I know for a fact no foriegn material has been passed through. Nails, staples etc. This has happened with several Freud blades in my unisaw. I recommend the Forrest woodworker 2 for ripping. They don't have the teflon coating but they seem to hold up better over the long haul.

Style Name: 10-Inch 24 Tooth FTG Ripping Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating Verified Purchase
A lot of the projects I build require edge gluing boards to make wider panels. In the past my normal technique would be to rip the boards to a uniform width and the run them through the jointer to get a good enough edge for a nearly invisible glue line.

This blade is advertised to make glue line rip cuts and it does just that. I'm able to make rip cuts in thick hardwood that require no further preparation prior to glue up. That includes some 13/16 maple that I just used for a dovetailed blanket chest. That makes for a nice time saver.

Bottom line; If you do a lot of ripping, this blade is definitely worth the investment.

Style Name: 10-Inch 24 Tooth FTG Ripping Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
I bought this blade to rip white oak and it cut very well at first. After a couple hundred feet it slowed down so I took it to my sharpener and he couldn't sharpen it because of all the chipped teeth!! None of the teeth were missing, but al of them had chunks of carbide broken out. Not very impressed.....

Style Name: Industrial Heavy Duty Rip Saw Blade 10-Inch by 24t Flat Top 5/8-Inch arbor Ice Coated Verified Purchase
When I bought my first blade 2 years ago I chose a Forrest 40 tooth ATB. It was good choice considering I had no idea what I'd be cutting as a new hobbyist.

It's finally dull and I decided to buy a rip blade because I find myself ripping often. I wanted to buy another Forrest, but I only saw an 18 tooth and was worried that it might be too rough. So I gambled on the Freud, which is less than half the price. It was confusing, trying to decide between the red and the "ice", but in the end I decided that the surface of the blade shouldn't be touching anything anyway, so why on earth would I need a fancy coating?

This thing is amazing!

Running white oak through this was insanely smooth with no effort. Some of the blades are being marketed as "glue line" blades, but again, I don't buy it. This blades makes a silky smooth cut and sounds nice, too. This was a good purchase.

Style Name: Industrial Heavy Duty Rip Saw Blade 10-Inch by 24t Flat Top 5/8-Inch arbor Ice Coated Verified Purchase
This blade is awesome. Ripped boards are ready for glue up straight off the saw. Heavy construction, well balanced and quiet. Due to the flat grind on this blade I also use it to cut box joints on my table saw and it works perfectly. This is my second Freud blade and I am very impressed. Once you find a good thing I believe you should stick with it, Freud blades for me from now on.
Recommended to anyone who wants to make a glue line rip or make a cut with a flat bottom.

Style Name: 10-Inch 24 Tooth FTG Ripping Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
I rarely change the blades in my table saw and leave the 60 tooth plywood blade in, however, when I have to rip alot of lumber this is my blade. It provides a nice smooth cut at a nice pace. I have never had a tooth chip or miss carbide as some have mentioned.

Style Name: Industrial Heavy Duty Rip Saw Blade 10-Inch by 24t Flat Top 5/8-Inch arbor Ice Coated Verified Purchase
This is an excellent blade for ripping hardwoods and not bad for crosscutting either. Makes a much smoother cut that I would expect from a blade with only 24 teeth. And it's ability to cut a flat bottomed slot is nice too. Not for cutting plywood.

Good, clean cuts in both dry and green Douglas fir. So far I've ripped several hundred feet of fir and this blade has continued to do the job. I'd recommend it.
