Jordan Explains The Features of Freud’s Ultimate Cutoff Blade
Watch how our Product Specialist explains the features and benefits of the LU85 Ultimate Cutoff Blade for Cross-Cutting in the woodworking industry. This blade gives smooth, fast cuts without blowout. Freud, is an industry leader for more than 50 years. Freud is also one of the few manufacturers of woodworking tools in the world that produces its own MicroGrain Carbide with Titanium. TiCo, a high-density combination of Titanium and Cobalt formulated to help the blade maintain a sharp cutting edge for crosscutting applications. Freud has the unique ability to formulate each tool for each specific application, thereby maximizing the cutting life and performance of the tool.
ATB Teeth with Side-Grinding for Clean Workable Finishes
This cut-off blade’s Alternating-top-bevel (ATB) –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.
Balanced Anti-Vibration Design
This Freud blade is precision balanced and pretension 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
By producing their own carbide, that is extra hard — due to including more high-density tungsten carbide while still offering the full mix of improved heat resistance, corrosion resistance, impact resistance that you would expect from a TiCo. This cut-off saw blade’s – 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 Benefits
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, which reduces blade warp. This coating helps prevent debris collection and resin or “pitch” buildup. It also means less downtime for cleaning your blade.
