Anti-Friction Design

A special coating allows this blade to be used time and time again without gumming or corrosion.

Milwaukee's wood cutting, fine finish blades provide cleaner cuts and cutting efficiencies to improve your productivity. An ATB tooth pattern minimizes tearout in the cut material. An anti-friction coating keeps the blade cool while cutting and resists corrosion and gumming. Laser cutting technology creates the blade from 100% sheet steel to ensure a stable blade that increases cutting accuracy. 10 in. blades are ring tensioned to further stabilize the blade. Laser cut vibration slots minimize wobble and warping during use. A thin kerf design delivers faster cuts as well as more cuts per charge when using a cordless tool.

Yes, If by "left-handed" you mean a saw with a blade on the left side. It will work perfectly. By the way; There is no such thing as a left-handed or right- handed saw. Some saws, such a my worm-drive saws and my smaller Milwaukee saws, have the BLADE on the left so that a RIGHT HANDED person can SEE the cut-line easily. Even though those saws are preferred by expert carpenters who happen to be right-handed like me, the saws themselves are not called "right handed.” The left-blade or right-blade choice is just a personal preference. As a RIGHT-handed carpenter, I prefer saws with the blade on the LEFT side for all free-hand cutting. When we use straight-edges or saw-guides, it doesn't matter much which side the blade is on because the guide steers the saw. There are a few instances where the blade-side makes some in situ cuts more convenient. But other than those rare cases, it really doesn't matter much at all. It's just what you prefer for psychological comfort and control with your dominant hand. ANY saw blade of appropriate SIZE will work on ANY saw. Just be sure to face the teeth FORWARD. And remember, when the blade is on the left-side, then the mounting-screw has a reverse thread! ( right-loosen, left tightens) That helps to maintain the blade's secure attachment. Only saws with the blade on the right side have the common ( righty-tighty, lefty-loosey) screw threads. Over the decades, I've had to answer that question many times from beginners, so you are wise to ask! Understanding how power tools are used will always help you remain safe and get better results. Bottom line: Use the right SIZE and face teeth FORWARD. Everything else is a personal choice. I hope that clears up any misconceptions abut saw "handedness." Good luck!

would this be a good blade for cutting .25in polycarbonate sheet?

Asked by mike April 7, 2020

Answers

Although it CAN cut poly-carbonate and other plastics, it is not ideal for that purpose. They make special blades for cutting plastics that prevent melting, and those are worth the cost if you have many cuts to do. However, it IS POSSIBLE to cut plastics with metal cutting blades or fine finish blades like this. We just need to secure the work very well, and use the correct feed-rate. Cut too slow, and the blade will melt the plastic. Cut too fast, and the blade will crack the plastic. Poly-carbonate is extremely tough material, but it can be cut by hand quite simply! There is a special tool for that purpose that is inexpensive called a plastic-sheet cutting tool. Here is one example: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Plastic-Sheet-Cutting-Tool-GE-41/202038073 To use it, we score the plastic with that tool against a straight edge, then SNAP along the score-line. If you've never seen that done before, go search for videos on cutting plastic by hand. Once you've seen it done, you understand how easy that is! But if you have MANY cuts to do and prefer the clean edges of sawing, then invest in a specialized plastic-laminate blade. It will pay you back many times over with clean safe cuts and less effort. Hope that helps! ;-)

This is a first rate saw blade. With 60 teeth, it is most often thought of as a plywood blade. But I wanted to try it on maple, wenge, padauk, and purpleheart. I was making some end grain cutting boards and needed very smooth cuts on the edges for my glue ups. I had to cut just a bit off all the edges to straighten the boards, as shown in the photos. The blade performed very well. The cuts, even on the wenge (which is a very hard wood) was clean and crisp and allowed my glue ups to go without issue. Maple can also be a problem at times as I have had saw blades chatter when finishing the cut. That did not happen with this blade. Very smooth and very precise.

This is the Milwaukee 48-40-1228, 12” by 100-tooth (Ultra Fine) standard kerf (1/8”) saw blade (note that the package nowhere states the kerf—I measured it. It’s strange that the Home Depot website calls it a “Thin kerf blade” in the description, which usually refers to a kerf less than 1/8”). It has an anti-friction coating and the vibration slots are filled with a polymer, supposedly to reduce vibrations even more than using just the slots. The tooth pattern is ATB (alternate-tooth bevel). Milwaukee claims that the blade can be used with softwoods, hardwoods, melamine, MDF, veneered plywood, paneling and moldings. It’s worth noting that the blade comes in an easy-open package. In Photo 1 you can see the perforations (in the plastic and cardboard) allowing you to open the package from the back quite easily. Before installing the blade on my 12”, non-sliding miter saw, I check it for flatness. Out of the package it was perfectly flat all across the blade. I installed the blade in my 20+ year-old miter saw (see Photo 2)—nothing makes an old saw work like new like a new blade. I was not disappointed, in fact, I came away quite impressed. I tested the blade on some very hard 2x6 White Oak. I hate to use that over-used phrase, “like a hot knife through butter,” but there’s no other way to describe it. And the cuts were clean. I really like this saw blade.

A nice fine finish blade that performs very well without gumming up thanks to the anti- friction coating. This 10 inch 80 tooth saw blade is well designed and high quality. I typically use the DIABLO Red saw blades from Freud America, Inc. for my ultra fine finish saw blade needs and also have used several construction series blades from Dewalt. This blade is a competitor for the Diablo 80 tooth blade but the Diablo does cut a little cleaner in my opinion. It has the same price point and cut the several project panel veneered plywood sheets with ease and cut a 2 1/2" butcher block top without bogging or any tear out. A little sanding with a finish sander and the table top was ready to go. As for the longevity of this blade I can only say that it is still as sharp as it was when installed on my saw and only time will tell but I do not see it getting dull any time soon.

A lot of times I work on projects like book shelves, work benches, and other things where a finer blade than the ‘framing’ type blade I normally use is necessary. The choice of the Milwaukee 40-tooth blade was a great choice. Whether cutting lumber, plywood, or MDF, it makes a very clean cut and does an excellent job. I got one for my circular saw and one for my table saw. Changing blades only takes a couple minutes, and was time and money well spent.

I needed new blades for my small cordless circular saw and thought the Milwaukee blade would be worth a try. The description of a fine finish 36 tooth blade made me wonder about the “fine finish” performance that this blade would produce. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised. I immediately bolted it onto my saw and tried it on some scrap pieces of trim that I had. These pieces were already finished, so I thought that would be a good test for the “fineness”. On the ¾” quarter round, it did a nice job but there were some very small splinters chipped out. You really had to look to see them and they could have been covered with a little stain and would never be noticeable. Next I tried the blade on a piece of 5” baseboard that was also finished. The same for this piece, small pieces splintered out. I then did what I frequently do with this type of wood and taped the line where I was going to cut with painters tape. That took care of the splintering issue and the pieces looked great. The saw went through it smoothly and easily. I then thought I would try it on a 2” X 4”. It went through the board very easily and left a very nice cut. There was also a little soft wood splintering on the end. It didn’t matter on this piece, as it was going into framing for a wall. I was very happy with this cut also. I love these little cordless saws, as I frequently need to cut only a piece of two, and dislike dragging out a long extension cord for the bigger power saw and really don’t like getting out my miter saw on a stand if I don’t have to. A lot of my work is at remote locations anyway and there may be electrical service nearby, or there may not be. This little blade does the trick and I will definitely buy more of them.

I found the Milwaukee 10-1/4 saw blade to be a good quality blade well suited for general all-around use. The blade cuts quickly and cleanly, but I would not use it for very fine cuts such as cabinet doors or picture frames. My personal preference for using this blade would be for shelving, certain plywood projects or moldings. Although not ideal for construction lumber it will get the job done if necessary.

The Milwaukee 12 in. X 80-tooth fine finish circular saw blade is a quality product. It makes really nice clean cuts and makes the workload much easier when the cuts are made correct the first time. I used the saw blade to cut the interior floor trim boards and interior door trim for our home. I am really pleased with this saw blade and it certainly met my expectations.

This review is based upon a first impression. The blade was packaged in such a way that it was protected against damage similar to other blades. The blade was installed in a mitre saw. For testing purposes, a piece of base moulding was cut flat on a 45 degree angle. The cut was clean, having left no ragged edges. Prior to cutting, the motor was run and examined for balance, which appeared to be quite good. Once this blade has been used to make several hundred fine cuts, a determination will be made regarding its true value.

Dulls too quickly. I used for cutting 3/4" melamine board. Cuts themselves were smooth with nice finish. However, blade was dull and unable to cut through after 9 x 4ft cuts - it lasted less than 1 day, Had to finish the job with a standard 24 tooth carbide blade (rougher finish but at least it hasn't failed yet...).
