Thank you for your question. No, the A-93734 12" 100T Micro-Polished Miter Saw Blade is not intended for metal cutting.
I cut a lot of Moulding with it commercially, so it should do well.
Yes and no. What "can" be done and what SHOULD be done are different. I have cut many pieces of pvc, vinyl, and THIN (less than 1/16" metal) with blades like this easily. So Yes it probably can cut 1/8" flat steel if you flip the blade to turn backwards and go very very slowly. It will be extremely loud, very slow, probably dangerous, and will ruin the blade in a day. The blade isn't made for that type of cutting and you should just buy a metal cutting blade for your application which will work MUCH faster and be MUCH cheaper than this anyway. Final answer: NO. Dont use this blade for 1/8" steel.
I haven't done much with corian. This blade should cut corian, but I have no experience using this blade for cutting corian.
Thank you for your question. Yes, the A-93734 12" 100T Micro-Polished Miter Saw Blade is capable of cutting this material. You may also be interested in our A-94817 12" 100T Ultra-Coated Miter Saw Blade.
Makita doesn't publish the hook angle for this blade, Part No. A-93681. They do make another line of miter saw blades (Makita Max Efficiency), and that line's 10", 80 teeth blade (Part No. B-66977) has a 10 degree hook angle.
Thank you for your question. The A-93706 12" x 1" 40T Micro-Polished Miter Saw Blade is capable of completing the job, but more teeth will ensure a finer cutting finish. Please see the A-94801 12" x 1" 80T Ultra-Coated Miter Saw Blade or the A-94817 12" x 1" 100T Ultra-Coated Miter Saw Blade for more suitable options.
