Freud FRE-LU74R012 12" x 96T Thin Kerf Ultimate Cut-Off Blade



This thin kerf blade produces glass smooth surfaces when crosscutting hardwoods and softwoods, thanks to Freud’s unique side grinding technology. The larger blades are ideal for miter box applications. Thin kerf blades remove less material than standard carbide blades, thus requiring less horsepower to produce equally good results


  • Premium TiCo HI-Density Carbide Crosscutting Blend for Maximum Performance
  • No Stabilizers needed
  • Unique Side Grind polishes the material to produce a superior finish
  • Perma-Shield Non-Stick Coating reduces blade drag, protects the blade from corrosion and pitch build-up.


Ideal For: Ultimate Cut-Off Blades For Glass-Smooth Finishes With Underpowered Saws. Depth of cut (1/4" min to 1-5/8" max)
