ATB Teeth with Side-Grinding for Glass-Smooth Finishes
This cut-off blade's 64-tooth alternating-top-bevel (ATB) configuration features teeth that face both left and right--a versatile setup that's ideal for crosscuts in hard- and softwood, as well as general use. And thanks to the unique side-grind on each tooth, the blade smoothes work surfaces as it cuts through them. This leaves you with a super-smooth, high-quality finish that doesn't need to be sanded down.

This blade is designed for optimal performance when crosscutting wood that is 1/4 to 1-5/8 inches thick, or when cutting chipboard and plywood that is less than 1-inch thick. The blade can also handle ripping wood and working with laminate, and it 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 0.116 kerf.

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 cut-off saw blade's 64 teeth are finished with tips made from Freud's application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "crosscut blend." Formulated to help the blade maintain a sharp cutting edge in the face of demanding crosscut applications, this blend is extra hard--due to including 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.

Style Name: 10-Inch 80 Tooth ATB Ultimate Cut-Off Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
I thought it was a crock when I heard this blade cut wood as smooth as glass...but! I was wrong dead wrong...it is like someone buffed the piece of wood I just cut, it was so smooth it was shinning. A definite must in your shop.

Style Name: 12-Inch 96 Tooth ATB Crosscutting Saw Blade with 1-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating Verified Purchase
I purchased this blade for use on my compound miter saw. It cuts very well leaving a very smooth finish in all the woods I've tried: oak, maple, cherry, walnut. I espeCially like the teflon coating, all my other saw blades have developped rust over the years no matter how hard I try to keep them clean. This blade should keep cutting well and looking clean for a very long time.

Style Name: 12-Inch 96 Tooth ATB Crosscutting Saw Blade with 1-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
Among the finest blades I've seen yet. I'm remodeling an old house, and need to cut new base boards (oak). It isn't kidding when it says "Glass Smooth". This blade in my DeWalt 706 is an ideal setup.
Beware, even a blade of this quality is not a replacement for proper support of the wood. If you are doing fine work with good wood, invest the time to create a sacrifical backstop and throat plate for your mitre saw. The stock plates on my DeWalt are great for general work, but if you want 5-star results, put in the effort to set up your saw correctly.

Unbelievable smooth cuts. If you see any tooth marks on the cut, your saw must be out of adjustment! I keep the trailing edge of the blade about 0.002" tapered away from the cut piece and get perfect cuts everytime on my Jet 3Hp saw.

This blade lives up to it's billing. It does cut as smooth as glass. If I had not seen it with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it. Pair this blade with the Freud blade stabilizer and you have a cutting combo for your table saw that is hard to beat. (I would recommend cleaning the blade every now and then. Pitch build up does reduce the smoothness of the cut.) Chalk up another one for Freud!

Style Name: 10-Inch 80 Tooth ATB Ultimate Cut-Off Saw Blade with 5/8-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
I've owned this blade for about 2 years, and it's incredible. If you're cutting stock that will have exposed end-grain and you want it to look great, this is the blade to use. It produces a polished (literally) finish on the ends of the board -- meaning there is absolutely no need to sand the end grain. I've found that this finish also means less differential stain uptake between the end-grain and the regular grain. Just a light touch of shellac will solve that problem!

Don't use this blade if you need the end-grain to hold glue for a joint. It's simply too smooth.

I've also used the LU85 for cutting thin plywood. Freud's catalog says it's OK up to 1" thick, but I prefer to use it only for 3/8" or less.

Style Name: 12-Inch 96 Tooth ATB Crosscutting Saw Blade with 1-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating Verified Purchase
I bought this blade to assist with the installation of a hardwood floor, and it totally exceeded my expectations. I was installing prefinished 3/4" solid Hickory (3, 4, and 5" wide planks) and most cuts were at a 45 degree angle. This blade sliced through it flawlessly without chipping at all. It wasn't until it dulled and I bought a Freud Diablo (which was terrible for this job) and then a top-of-the-line CMT blade (decent, but not as nice, and oh the noise that cuts right through your earplugs) to tide me over while this one was being sharpened that I really appreciated it. It made it through about 400 square feet of hardwood before it needed sharpening, and wood doesn't get much tougher than Hickory. Had no problems at all with the blade bogging down, but it was attached to a heavy duty Dewalt DW716 miter saw (which I also highly recommend). It also doesn't have the very annoying high pitch "ring" that the CMT blade does when you finish the cut.

I wouldn't recommend anything else, it is well worth the money.

Style Name: 12-Inch 96 Tooth ATB Crosscutting Saw Blade with 1-Inch Arbor and PermaShield Coating
The title says it all, you can't beat this blade. I really don't think there is any room for improvement here. I don't know what I did without it before! If you've got a decent chopsaw and a stock blade, you are missing out. This blade supercharges your miter box with glass-smooth cuts, less tear-out, thick carbide for many resharpenings, no blade flex (that I noticed) and therefore, perfect finish grade crosscuts. Leaves the edges as sharp as can be. Be careful when you first take it out of the box, this blade is truly sharp. YOU NEED THIS BLADE! Now I'm looking for more Freud products. Way to go Freud!!
