Includes 160mm 14T Thin Kerf Rip Saw Blade - LU87R006M20

Amazon.com

The 160-millimeter Freud LU87R006M20 Thin Kerf Rip Saw Blade makes quick work of ripping operations in hard- and softwood. It features 14 oversized teeth with alternating bevels and thick TiCo high-density carbide tips designed to last, in addition to Freud's Perma-SHIELD coating, which reduces friction to prevent heat buildup. Plus, since it's a thin-kerf blade, it wastes less material and continues to cut cleanly when used with underpowered saws.

Large-Tooth, Thin-Kerf Blade Ideal for Low-Horsepower Saws
This rip saw blade is ideally suited to ripping hard- and softwoods, and it also delivers strong results when crosscutting wood or working with plywood. Ideal for Festool and other track saws. It has a 20-millimeter arbor and produces a 0.098 kerf.

In addition to offering faster cuts through tough materials, its large tooth design allows the blade to be safely sharpened more times, prolonging the life of the blade and saving you money. Plus, the large gullets between these teeth ensure easy chip removal.

Well-Balanced, Anti-Vibration Design
This Freud blade is pretensioned for truer cuts under heavy loads. It also features an anti-vibration design that reduces chatter for a cleaner finish, longer blade life, and reduced noise while you work. And because the 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 thin-kerf rip saw blade's 14 teeth are finished with tips made from an application-specific TiCo high-density carbide "ripping blend" that offers improved density, hardness, corrosion resistance, and heat resistance.

Ideal for the demands of ripping large quantities of thick, hard wood, this carbide blend includes extra cobalt for increased impact resistance. Plus, it delivers increased sharpness and edge retention, which means the blade will hold up longer--saving you 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.

This ripping blade works beautifully.

I've been using the festool for a renovation job and this blade holds up much better than the festool blades under thes conditions.

Blade cuts good on Festool TS55 but being only 12 tooth it leaves some rough edges. Great for general ripping but not for glue line rips.

I mill my own wood but using a circular saw to edge and straighten the planks was too time consuming and the clean up was even worse so I began using my track saw. The problem with the Festool TS55 is the standard blade has a hard time going through my freshly milled stack of lumber so I had to make multiple passes, which led to lost time and extra wear on the saw's motor. I decided to change out the blade to a special ripping one and this made all of the difference. I am able to rip through 2" Elm and Ash with a single pass and not bog the saw down. Along with using the track saw, I am able to quickly cut my planks down to the desired widths.

I've been using the festool for a renovation job and this blade holds up much better than the festool blades under thes conditions. I've cut a lot of old flooring out and the blade zips right through old nails. it also makes clean rips and fairly clean cross cuts in pine and oak.

When ripping it's good to use a ripping blade. What else? I find it useful when I need a long straight piece of dimensional lumber. Trying to cut out the bow on a table saw means extra work with a long guide. Using the track saw with this blade is a lot easier.

Just took this blade off my Festool TS55 saw and all I can say is 'wow.' I cut out nearly 1200 sq. ft. of particle board sub-flooring and did numerous oak and maple
hardwood flooring repairs on just one blade. That being the case, the blade was recycled in the metal bin afterwards. Finally a cost effective replacement for the Festool
saw. Thank you Freud!

I'm using fossilized bamboo from calibamboo. It's rated 5000+ janka and is the hardest wood flooring in the world. I've tried a few regular blades for ripping the boards and they get nowhere. To rip a full length would take 2 min of cutting as the blades would slowly get through it. This blade is incredible and is ripping the boards in about 15-20 seconds. It melts them compared to other blades. I also haven't seen the blade get dull or damaged until I start hitting some nails in subflooring on another project. That said, the blade isn't rated well for metal (nails) so it's my fault, not the blade. All in all, incredible blade, the strongest you can find for ripping tough hardwood flooring planks.
