NEW! Freud and Diablo Blade Does 75x the Cuts on Laminate Flooring
The great thing about Pergo and other brands of Laminate Flooring is the great look and the long lasting finish that you get with them; and, all without the hours of waxing floors like your mom used to do – bless her heart. But, with every great new invention there are always pro’s and con’s.
The aluminum oxide that is used in Laminate Flooring makes it last and last, that’s the good news. The bad news is that this same aluminum oxide is murder on carbide saw blades and other cutting tools. Yes, we’re talking about aluminum oxide, the same mineral used in sandpaper. No wonder saw blades don’t last cutting sandpaper.
The preferred way to cut this stuff is either on a table saw or with a slide miter. Still, most people are using a conventional miter or chop saw because this is a faster way to cut it. Unfortunately, carbide tipped blade life is typically only 20-50 cuts per blade, depending on the blade and, to some extent, the operator.
Good news! Freud and Diablo has a solution – a Diamond Tipped Blade designed just for cutting laminate flooring with 75 times the life over even their own carbide tipped blades.
The sound, speed and performance of this blade are light years apart from your typical flooring blade. One of the most impressive things to me in the videos is the speed and ease of cut with the new diamond blade as compared to the carbide tipped blade.
Here are just a few of the key points of this new blade:
- Ultra long cutting life; saves the PRO installer time, money and increases productivity;
- Only chop saw solution for laminate flooring, increases productivity for the PRO installer;
- Superior quality of finish for a ready to install edge;
- Test results for this blade have shown 1800 cuts per blade using a conventional miter saw.
This blade is available in 10″ D1012LF** and 12″ D1216LF** , with a 7-1/4″ D0708LF coming later this year. You’re going to want to add this new blade to your tool box today and you’ll be telling everyone..,
The Freud and Diablo blades** is the best blade available for cutting laminate floors.”
