Metal cutting blades come in 4-in., 6-in. and 8-in. lengths, in 14, 18 or 24 TPI, and have a straight blade profile.

Multi-material cutting blades cut metal, plastics, wood and rubber and are available in 6-in., 9-in. and 12-in. lengths, in 6 – 10, 10 and 10 – 14 TPI, and have a tapered or straight shape. In addition, a 12-in., 10 – 14 TPI tapered blade made for cutting car bodies is also offered.
