Carbide-tipped metal cutting blades...

Man, I am so sick and tired of using my chop saw. It's messy, stinks, and a general PITA. Until I saw that there are these carbide tipped blades available....hmmm [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Yes, they are mass expensive but if they last as long as they say, they will be much cheaper in the long run. Plus no dealing with the smell, dust, and blade diameter shrinking. Anyone use one before? How do they work???? Here's a link to one of them:

Cheers!

Re: Carbide-tipped metal cutting blades...

They rule. You need a saw designed for them though. They are designed to run about 1500RPM's vs 5000RPM's of typical abrasive saw.

The blades would last a very long time for a weekend fabber. I go through one every 2-3 months which sucks, but I probably cut more in a week than most of you would in 6mo.

Re: Carbide-tipped metal cutting blades...

Ya these kind of blades are awesome. They cut so much faster then the abravsive blades too. The only thing they're not good for is cutting hard materials. Oh and one more thing, they actually cut straight down, not like the other ones the bow out toward the end of the cut.

Re: Carbide-tipped metal cutting blades...

We have a 10" hand held metal cutting blade on the rescue truck I drive at work. We can cut the entire top off a midsized car, windows and all, in less than 90 seconds with it. Yeah, they work!!! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

Re: Carbide-tipped metal cutting blades...

Has anyone used the metal blade on a chop saw with rpm from 3000-5000 when the blade max is 1500 rpm. If you have how long did it last. I use aprox 5 abrasive blades pre month.
I use a milwaukee 14" chop saw 3000 rpm. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Don't do it, your saw is 2x the rated speed of the blade. [img]images/graemlins/spank.gif[/img] It has a rated speed for a reason. [img]images/graemlins/deal.gif[/img]
You will be eating the chunks.
