I would not cut anything that had metal in it. No steel of any kind. That is for a blade with carbide with more teeth per inch. You will ruin a 4 tooth expensive Diablo blade cutting any kind of metal.
Yes, I can't imagine why it wouldn't work. Just make sure to wear a mask and eye protection.
As long as the arbor on your miter saw is the same size arbor on the blade. It will work fine in your miter saw. With that said. I wouldn't choose this blade for cutting brick. This blade is for fiber cement board which tends to be softer and thinner than brick. Not saying that this blade with not cut brick but it would dull quickly. I would choose a full diamond tipped blade that is made for cutting brick. There are plenty of them to choose from.
I am using it with a small 4.5" Milwaukie 110V grinder and it fits and works fine with the safety guard on that came with the grinder, use at your own risk.
i would say no. Electric shears are recommended. A jig saw or circular saw may be used, but will create airborne dust. The Hardie Board blade has too few teeth.
Hi eric, This blade is meant for fiber cement (i.e. James hardie backer) Please use a masonry cutting disc.
Yes, if your saw fits a 5/8" arbor and will fit a 5 inch blade
yes it’s can cut backer board and fiber cement sidings, be sure to set your saw at a slower speed and the blade do the cutting, apply light pressure to guide the blade through the cutting, besure to clamp your board on a stable work space or bench.
It's a narrow kerf, perhaps 1/16 inch.
MtnMan, I cannot recommend using a 5" blade in your 6.5" saw due to the 5" blade being meant for different RPM than a 6.5" saw. We do not currently have a 6.5" hardie blade. (coming soon) D0641R will work for Hardie board but is not ideal.
