What are Thin Kerf Saw Blades?
Thin Kerf Saw Blades are specifically designed for battery operated machines. These blades are thinner at the tooth resulting in much less strain on the blade therefore less loss of power on the battery, making them much more suited for cutting Softwood, Hardwood, Particle Board, MDF, Hardboard and Plywood. Sizes range from 120mm to 190mm in diameter.
Machine: What Machine Are You Using?
If you are using a cordless machine such as Dewalt, Makita or Milwaukee power tools then the blade you will need is a thin kerf saw blade which range from 120mm to 190mm diameter and 10mm to 30mm bore sizes. 165mm x 20mm x 24T and 40T are by far the most common saw blades on the market.
For corded machines the sizes range from 150mm to 216mm in diameter with either a 20mm or 30mm bore size. Reducing rings are available to reduce the bore size down from 30mm to 20mm. The most common saw blade in this range would be the 190mm x 30mm x 28T.
For Mitre saws and Bench saws the sizes range from 216mm to 250mm diameters. These blades are laser cut from hardened steel, tempered and tensioned, complete with euro slots. The most common blades in this range are 216mm x 30mm x 40T and 60T
For industrial machines the sizes range from 250mm to 500mm diameters.
