Laser-Cut Anti-Vibration SlotsLaser-Cut Anti-Vibration Slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut extending blade life, and giving a crisp, flawless finish
Combination Tooth Design for Versatility and Accuracy
This thin-kerf blade's 50 teeth are arranged in groups of five, each of which includes one flat-top raker tooth for fast, accurate ripping. Each flat tooth is followed by four alternating-top-bevel (ATB) teeth that are particularly well suited to crosscutting, and large gullets between the teeth ensure effective chip clearance.

This blade is designed for optimal performance when crosscutting materials that are 3/4 to 3-1/2 inches thick, or ripping materials that are 3/8 to 1-1/2 inches thick. It makes quick work of hard- and softwood, plywood, and chipboard. It can also handle laminates or 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 .091 kerf.

And because thin-kerf blades remove less material than standard carbide blades, they allow for faster feed times, and they require less horsepower to produce smooth, accurate results when cutting.

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. Furthermore, this well-balanced, anti-vibration design means there's no need to use add-on stabilizers with this blade.

High-Density Carbide for Maximum Cutting Performance
This thin-kerf saw blade's 50 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud's application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "combination blend." Formulated to help the blade maintain a sharp cutting edge for longer when faced with a variety of applications, this blend includes just a little bit more high-density tungsten carbide than other TiCo blends. And it still offers the full mix of improved corrosion resistance, heat resistance, and impact resistance that you expect from TiCo.

With teeth that start out sharper and deliver improved edge retention, the blade can go longer between sharpening, and will hold up longer--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.

The blade is very quiet.

I bought this for my Delta Contractor to use saw while I had my TK WWII sharpened and the cuts are better than the Forrest. Rips are glass smooth and no splintering in crosscuts. And it is so quiet I can hardly tell there's a blade on the saw.

I agree this blade makes a smooth cut but it burns cherry while ripping too slow. Here are my initial findings. Pros: Cuts smooth and glass-like but only if you push through evenly and don't stop. Less tear-out and great crosscuts. Very quiet, very sharp and doesn't bog down. Cons: Burns if you rip without even speed. Must push harder woods faster to avoid burns. Produces very fine sawdust and more flys up above the blade (yes, in your face) than below. This is probably to be expected. It's probably the tradeoff to get a smooth, finish cut.

What would I do different? I would still buy a Freud as the quality is 2nd to none for the price but I would choose a wider kerf on the assumption that the thin kerf in this case appears to allow too much blade contact with the wood probably accelerating the burn. This I believe because the new blade leaves a red mark on the wood sometimes (easily removed) from the blade coating. You can also clearly see the carbide cutters are only slightly wider than the blade. I will try a featherboard next to eliminate the burn.

I would still buy this blade and deal with the occasional burn as most woodworkers need a thin kerf blade for one reason or another. Resawing is the best reason to need a thin-kerf blade in my humble opinion.

I have a Bosch 4000 Contractor's table saw. I replaced the factory blade with the Freud thin kerf as an upgrade i suspected would make a difference with an "underpowered saw." I was right. I've cut 3/4 oak and you cannot hear the motor change pitch. I suspect that the thin kerf helps. Cuts are ready for glue up. I used a couple of the Frued stablizer disks for good measure. That much inertia has got to be good for something, right? The rip blade is just as good. There might be better blades, but this one is good enough for me.

Before buying this blade, I have mostly used a Delta combination blade (1/8" kerf, 50 tooth) and a Freud 60 tooth blade (3/32" kerf) for the past few years. The former came with my saw, the latter I bought thinking I always wanted ultra-smooth cuts. The need for a new blade came when I chipped off a tooth from the Freud 60 (so now it's a 59) courtesy an 18-gauge brad.

This blade was recommended to me by a Freud rep at a Woodcraft store one weekend. He listened to what I mostly do (lots of plywood, some pine and some hardwood, some 2x4s) and said I should give the LU83 a try.

I'm really glad I listened to his advice.

The blade is very quiet. There is almost no additional noise when I feed 3/4" MDF, and no apparent resistance - I don't have to push any harder to keep the same feed speed, and the blade does not seem to slow at all. The tired cliche applies: like a hot knife through butter.

I think the 60-tooth Freud gave slightly smoother cuts, but not so much that I care about it. The 60-tooth blade also had more of a tendency to scorch the wood and leave burn marks, sometimes made smoke (especially in re-sawing), but it probably needs to be sharpened. The others who have advised keeping a constant feed rate to avoid them with this blade are correct, and I think it may be true for any blade.

Rockler had a twenty dollar off coupon for purchases over fifty, so it was a deal and a half at thirty five. It is still worth getting at the Amazon price. I am very happy with the performance of this blade.

A good complement to this blade is one especially well suited to smooth cuts through laminated material or hardwood plywood, without tear-out.

See also my review on the 60 tooth Freud, to be posted shortly.

FYI I am a "weekend warrior" woodworker of nearly intermediate experience. My table saw gets a lot of use but on an irregular basis.

Can't beat this ATB/Flat tooth combination blade for general every day use on the table saw. I use a zero clearance insert in the table and this blade excels at everything except the trickiest materials..(two sided melamines, ripping thick hard wood, etc.)It is also the safest combo blade I have used...will NOT kick back on you unlike several other well known brands because of the way the teeth are designed...whisper smooth, teflon coated, new laser cut expansion slots, thinner kerf with a lot of carbide to provide several sharpenings...a great investment. I also like the bright red color of these Freud blades. As a woodworker that experienced a bad accident when I was just learning the trade, the red color of the blades immediately make you pay attention when flipping that power switch....subtle but psychological trigger for added safety....Best price and qualified for free shipping from Amazon, how can you beat that?

Am a retired Mechanical Engineer & have been woodworking
for 14 years. Been thru two table saws & several blades.
Best prior blade was of German mfg & cost twice as much.
THIS blade is the BEST I have ever used.NO burning on Cherry, Walnut, Lyptus,Maple,Beech or Oak!!! Slick surface in ripping or crosscutting. 200 grit finish at LEAST. Held blade by hole in center with a nail; striking blade produced NO vibration!!! Apparently the red coating & laser cuts kill any vibration. Helps to explain beautifully cut surfaces. QUIET! A thin kerf & SUPER sharp teeth allow the 1.5 hp motor to keep running at full RPM. Prior blade "rang" when struck & was of yesterdays technology.
The Freud is as good as it gets using todays best engineering to get the BEST results. Do I sound impressed? YES !!!!!!! Don't wait. This is THEE one. As always, Amazons price & delivery were excellent !!
