Default Final Cut Blade

Hello,

Can I use a Final Cut Blade with the system?
Has anyone tried it? What were the results?

Thanks
Ron

Well come

I'm not sure, but what size saw are you using? I thought 9" was the smallest they have.

Hi Mel,

Thanks for replying. If You go to their website (link on my original post), click on product ordering, then, top left corner, 2nd line = abrasive discs.

Go to page 2, and they have an assortment of discs (which you can apply to your own blades) for 7 1/4 and up.

As for me, I'll be upgrading to a Makita 5008 MGA (8 1/4").

It is intriguing, to get a perfectly square, finely sanded edge, all in one go, just wondered if any of you have used it before, especially in connection with the EZ system. (i.e. what (if any) adverse effect on the AC's (anti chip plastic parts).

Thanks
Ron

Ron,

My gut level instinct is to say that you don't need it with the EZ. I have not tried it.

I think Dino tried that or a similiar product for some of his mfg process. He is no longer using it but I don't know any details.

Thank You Burt,

I'll just see, if there are any more comments re.: final cut blades. If not, I might just go ahead and try it, (and report back to the forum).

Thanks
Ron

hi Ron,
I use it and works great ...IF...you follow the directions100% and you use their blades. Because their blades are spec for the sandpaper.
The blade must have the right kerf and must be very clean.

Works even better in aluminum.

Ditto. I have read some people that tried it. Initial opinions seem to differ greatly from the opinions after use. One member of another forum said the paper loaded up, and stopped working, then he replaced it and the paper tore.
The other issue was will it work with the Diablo blades and their coating?

I would be more apt to test something like the ultra thin blades (3/32" if I remember correctly), or the Cermack blades.

Thank You all for your input re.: the Final Cut Blade.

I guess, I'll keep my eyes and ears open, and try to find out more from other sources.

All in all, Dino's comment was encouraging. I'll let you know what my experience with the final cut blade will be. (It will be a few weeks before I find time, as I am going away for a while, business is kind a slow right now).

Thanks
Ron

Ron,
Use it in your miter saw.
On the ez system, there is no need for it.
We use it in our cross cutter ( PBB) and we like it.

Thanks Dino,

I thought, that cross cutting is part of of the many uses of the EZ system. Certainly wouldn't change blades between ripping and cross-cutting.

Now I can see, that You (for manufacturing purposes), have a designated PBB work station for cross-cutting. For me, as an amateur (such a set-up) would be overkill (besides, I don't have the space, to keep it set up).

The compact size of the EZ system was one of the features, which attracted me to your system, rather than having a miter saw, and a table saw, and .... etc.

Anyway, thanks to you all,

Ron
