6 1/2 Inch blades go dull faster than 7 1/4

This question is from 6-1/2 in. x 24-Tooth Framing Saw Blade

I used Diablo blades in both my 7 1/4 and 6 1/2 circular saws and notice the blades on the 6 1/2 circular saw seem to go dull quicker. Is this because of the design of the smaller thinner blade is not as durable as a 7 1/4 or just the lack of power in the 18 volt saw does have as much power when the the blade goes just a little dull.

Answer: 
I have not had any problems with the 6-1/2" blades going dull faster than the 7-1/4" I have both saws, it may depend on the materials you are cutting or the saw itself. This is not an issue that I have with the blades.

Hi, Joe - The Diablo D0624R is produced to almost identical tolerances as the D0724R. The only exception is of course the overall size of the blade. However, it is hard to answer your question without further information.

Hi, Joe - The Diablo D0624R is produced to almost identical tolerances as the D0724R. The only exception is of course the overall size of the blade. However, it is hard to answer your question without further information. Since the D0624R is intended for use on a cordless saw, its life can be compromised by the lack of power draw from older or dying batteries. The more the blade will have to work in the material to complete the cut, will produce extra wear on heat build-up on the carbide teeth. Other factors can include the material being cut can cause accelerated dulling as well. Please reach out to Chris Washington at cwashington@freudtools.com so that he may further understand your issue. Thank you. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi, RW1257 - The Diablo 6 ½” x 40T blade is not recommended to cut non-ferrous materials. However, we do sell a 6 ½” x 48T metal cutting blade that will cut non-ferrous metals as well. The Part number is D0648F. We do not recommend putting a 7 ¼” blade on a miter saw either. Please either use the D1084L or the D1296L depending if the miter saw is a 10” saw or a 12” saw.

Answer: 
This is not a metal cutting blade. You want to look for a blade made to cut non-ferrous metal, that should cut through aluminum.

I use it on oak with great success. If you are cross-cutting, you may prefer a finer tooth blade.

Hi MTA, if your not cutting a lot of boards, this will be fine. I would prefer you were cutting on a table sawing and using a larger blade with more teeth.

There are blades with more teeth on them that are designed to cut paneling without tearing it up.

Has anyone cut paneling with this 40-tooth blade successfully?

Answer: 
A plywood blade would perform better in paneling than this blade, however, the life will be greatly reduced as plywood blades do not have carbide tips.

Howdy Kurch,
There are saw blades with more teeth that usually do not have the special constrcution of TiCo Hi-Density special-blend carbide, this Diablo 6-1/2 in. circular saw blade is outfitted with 40 teeth to make smooth, finely finished cuts in plywood.
The Perma-SHIELD nonstick coating reduces drag while stabilizer vents absorb noise and vibration to keep the blade straight.
An ultra-slim kerf produces a thin swath for less material removal and fast, effortless operation in dry or wet lumber.
This will do a great job for you.
Happy Cutting,
Coach Dave

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Battery power saw blade The 5 1/2" blade does not totally cut through a 2"x4". Short by about a 1/16". Otherwise, the blade is good and a clean cut. Made for framing lumber. September 20, 2016
