When I used mine for general wood cutting, it had a short life as most of the diamond tips broke off. The yellow pine I was ripping must have pinched the blade too much.

No, this blade is designed for use with wood or laminate flooring. The manufacturer suggests using a Diablo 12in x 84 Tooth Trex blade (Part #D1284CD) or the 12in x 96 Tooth Laminate Blade (Part # D1296L) for CoreLux vinyl plank flooring.

I used it to install an engineered hardwood (bamboo) floor. When I finished I used it to install 3/4" quarter round mdf molding. The cuts were absolutely flawless. Great blade.

Asked by Karen January 11, 2018

Answers

I used the same height for crosscut and ripping. I believe the height should at least be such that the notches between the teeth are above the surface of the laminate. To that end I set my height so the notch was about 1/4 inch above the laminate surface.

I used this blade to install 270 sq ft of Pergo Outlast flooring in my Basement. It made a clean cut, even with the padding on the back of the Pergo. A much better option than a board cutter ( I tried that first). Used it to cut laminate moulding as well.

This blade lives up to it's reputation. It makes beautiful cuts on laminate flooring. This is only my 2nd laminate floor install and I do have to say that this blade is far superior to the one I used last time. I bought this one because I have 2 more rooms to do and since it should last 75x longer, then this is a good bang for your buck! Recommend!!

Not hype. This blade was used to install Pergo on about 1000 sq. ft of flooring. It held up well and is still sharp.

Blade cut like butter from the first to the last cut through pergo outlast+. Very impressed. Burned up a normal saw blade previously on a different install and ended up buying a new blade. Worth the money to buy a specific blade for the application.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I’ve had this blade for a while, but I am only now starting my current laminate floor installation, and have a chance to share my opinion. In the past I was using an 84 tooth Diablo 10” blade, and although it provided smooth cuts, it required a lot of downward saw pressure on my chop saw to make the cuts, often resulting in some minor “burn” on the edges of the laminate. I tried this blade for the first time today, and WOW – what a noticeable difference. Yes, it’s a cliché often used by others, but I can think of no better phrase than that it cuts like a hot knife through butter. Because it zips through the laminate so easily, It is tempting to move the saw quickly through the stock, but doing so seems to result in tiny chipping at the edges. Taking a slow pass through the laminate completely avoids chipping, resulting in a finely honed edge (see picture). Can't say how long it will last, since I just started using it, but I love this blade right out of the box! Only wish that I had it before I started my last laminate flooring job. So glad I’ve got it now for the 2000 SF of Pergo XP that I'm putting down now.

(What's this)
I was a little skeptical about a 12-tooth 10" saw blade, but Diablo makes good stuff, so I guess they know what they're doing. Sure enough, this thing cuts through laminate like a hot knife though butter. No tearout or chipping at all, and I was getting the same cut quality at the start of my project as I was a the end of it. I only did one 130 sq. ft. room with an AC-4 rated 8mm laminate, so I can't really testify to the 75x longer cutting life that Diablo claims. However, I certainly didn't notice any degradation in cut quality for the 24' of rip cuts I made. One side note: the whole blade is coated in Diablo's red permashield coating. It stays on the whole blade for cut after cut, but the first few will leave red marks on the cut surface as the coating wears off the cutting teeth. Not a big deal though, since no one will ever see the ends of the laminate boards. If you've got a 10" miter saw and a 10" table saw, you could even get by with just this one blade. Rip cuts are only needed on the first and last rows, and for the first row you can crosscut the last piece on the table saw before changing out the blade. If you've got a laminate flooring project in your future, this blade is definitely worth picking up!

I was a little skeptical about a 16-tooth 12" saw blade, but Diablo makes good stuff, so I guess they know what they're doing. Sure enough, this thing cuts through laminate like a hot knife though butter. No tearout or chipping at all, and I was getting the same cut quality at the start of my project as I was a the end of it. I only did one 130 sq. ft. room with an AC-4 rated 8mm laminate, so I can't really testify to the 75x longer cutting life that Diablo claims. However, I certainly didn't notice any degradation in cut quality for the dozens of cuts I made. I even left the blade installed for the prefinished MDF quarter round, and it cut those without destroying the existing paint coat too. One side note: the whole blade is coated in Diablo's red permashield coating. It stays on the whole blade for cut after cut, but the first few will leave red marks on the cut surface as the coating wears off the cutting teeth. Not a big deal though, since no one will ever see the ends of the laminate boards. If you've got a laminate flooring project in your future, this blade is definitely worth picking up!
