Product Overview

Blade featuring an anti-friction coating


Anti-Friction Coating

This blade boasts an anti-friction coating that prevents the blade from getting gummed up with frequent use.

Kerf blade providing clean, precise cuts


Kerf Blade for Clean Cuts

This kerf blade slices through a variety of materials for fast, clean cuts.

Blade made of cobalt infused tungsten carbide


Durable Cobalt Infused Tungsten Carbide Construction

Cobalt infused tungsten carbide blade delivers precision results and lasts up to five times longer than a standard blade.

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. 12 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.

Tough Blade!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good blade to have If you like to do DIY or if your a professional wood worker. This blade by Milwaukee is a wood framing blade that is 7-1/4 inch and has 24 cutting teeth. This is cobalt infused tungsten carbide blade that extends cutting life and maintains tip sharpness. This has increased accuracy and laser cut vibration slots to help reduces wobble and warping. I have used this blade several time for different projects and it has been very accurate. It’s a high quality blade. This also has a anti-Friction coating so it cuts cooler and resists corrosion and gumming. This blade will last along time and give you many great cuts in the future. This can be used on a hand saw or a meter saw. It’s recommended for soft wood, hard wood, plywood, wet lumber and treated lumber. Milwaukee has always had quality tool and accessories. I have never had any issues with this blade. It works great. I have finished several of my wood projects with this blade. And will definitely be using it in the future.

      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.
