Product Overview

Diablo's next generation 12 in. x 96 Tooth Non-Ferrous Carbide Circular Saw Blade features new laser-cut stabilizer vents for precise and clean cuts in laminates and non-ferrous materials. The advanced stabilizer vents feature a permanent filler baked in from top to bottom for absorbing noise and preventing sideways movement, allowing the blade to slice through laminates and non-ferrous metals cleanly, quickly and accurately. Constructed with TiCo Hi-Density special-blend carbide, Diablo's 12 in. non-ferrous blade produces precise cuts and provides 5X longer cutting life. The laser cut heat expansion slots allow the blade to expand and contract during use, keeping the cut true and straight. This blade is excellent for cutting laminate flooring, plastics, brass, aluminum, copper and fiberglass.

  • TiCo high-density carbide for increased performance and maximum cutting life
  • Perma-SHIELD non-stick coating for protection against heat, gumming and corrosion
  • Super-thin kerf design for fast and effortless cuts
  • New advanced laser-cut stabilizer vents absord noise and vibration, and prevent sideways movement for precise, clean cuts
  • Tri-Metal Shock Resistant Brazing to withstand extreme impact
  • Precision tensioning is a computer controlled process to keep the blade flat for a better quality finish
  • Laser cut heat expansion slots allow the blade to expand and contract without warping for straight and accurate cuts.
  • Great for cutting laminates, non-ferrous metals, plastics, melamine and wood
  • Blade can be used on 12 in. miter saw and 12 in. slide miter saw
  • Red saw blades are a trademark of Freud America, Inc.

Can i cut aluminum ?

Asked by: Federico
Yes. The thicker the metal, the slower you will need to go, but I used it to cut aluminum hand railing, and it cut like a hot knife through butter, and left a clean cut.

"Metal Cutting Saw Blade?"

The title description of this blade indicates that it is a metal cutting saw blade but the blade pictured says it is for laminate and the more detailed description mentions nothing about cutting metal. So.... any ideas? Will this indeed cut metal or should Home Depot be fixing this particular web page?
Asked by: Shula
Hi, Shula - The Diablo D1296L is ideal for cutting Laminates, Melamine, and Non-Ferrous Metals. Non-Ferrous metals include all metals that do not contain any iron content. This includes metals such as Aluminum, Brass, and Copper.

What is the thickest piece of metal that you can cut?

How thick of a piece of metal (Aluminum) can you cut with this blade? Could I cut a block of aluminum say 5" x 5" x 25" into 5" x 5" x 5" blocks? Thanks.
Asked by: Joe85
A bandsaw would be the better choice. You wouldn't waste less material from the cut kerf (blade thickness), but sometimes you make do with what you have. I'm not positive about other saws, but my sliding compound miter saw lists 2-3/4" thick straight cut. With a bevel of 45° that drops down to 1-9/16". So yes, if I cut from both sides straight-up vertical (no bevel) I can cut something 5-1/2" thick, but it might not be that pretty.

12 in. x 96-Tooth Laminate/Non-Ferrous Metal Cutting Saw Blade is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 115.

The spec on the aluminum is 80tpi blade, this 84tpi is great. For those wondering about the 90 tpi vs. this 84tpi... I made a mistake when I bought a 90 tooth same brand but not metal cutting class, and it didn't last but a few dozen cuts before it had lost teeth and making sloppy and dangerous cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good blade Used it to cut up an old grade school blackboard they were throwing away to make 5"x7" mini blackboards for my sister in law to use with her first graders for math. The blade did a very good cut and never chipped any of the board and that was my fear as it was a pretty old blackboard. They turned out perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a hot knife through butter Just like they say on the packaging, it cuts like a hot knife through butter. I was initially hesitant because of the price, but I was so happy I went back to pick up another for my other saw so I didn't have to transfer it. Love it!
