FS is designed for a range of difficult to cut materials such as fiberglass, masonite, plastics, composites, aluminum castings and abrasive wood.
TS features a special tooth profile for efficient cutting of very difficult to machine steels including high-alloy metals, titanium, stainless steel, and inconel.
The new carbide tipped line includes a wide range of thicknesses from 3/4" x .035" to 3 1/8" x .063", in a complete range of positive rake pitches. Available lengths include 100', 150' coils, and welded-to-length on 2 5/8" x .063" and 3 1/8" x .063 blades.
