Thin sintered diamond saw blade
The extremely durable Hi-Tech Diamond thin sintered diamond saw blade is manufactured using premium diamond grit (325#/400#) that is secured into a metal bond, extending the full depth of the rim. This blade uses sintered technology, which increases their life span compared to notched rim saw blades because diamonds are continuously exposed as the edge of the blade wears away, cut after cut. Thin rims make these blades suitable for cutting and trimming material such as quartz, topaz, glass and fine agates.
All saw blades have 5/8" arbors and come with 1/2" bushings.
Important purchasing note: The 8" saw blade is black. This does not affect the performance of the blade.
Please note: These diamond saw blades must be run with a lubricant such as water or oil. NEVER run dry! We recommend using a good quality cutting oil with these blades. To enhance the performance and life span of these blades, abide by the recommended operating speeds and spin-dry your blade after use to prevent any rusting.
Don't know about durability yet, paint coming off on my rocks, thin is good
Hi Lorin - Please don't be alarmed by the paint. The paint does not affect this blade's performance. The blade is painted to differentiate between the different types of blades that we carry. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com or (630) 596-9909.
This blade has really surprised me with it's durability and longevity. Great product for cutting slabs of agate and jasper.
Kerf is thin, less wasted stone. Go slow with plenty of water/lubricant and don't stress the blade. On big stones the red paint comes off onto the stone, but easily removed.
