MOULDER BLANK BLADES--3.5mm (.138“) kerf
Ø Higher radial angle grind on the tips results in a rough finish with distinctive sawing marks.
Ø Less drag and lower heat generated on the saw tips results in longer run time
Ø Less buildup on the body increases the number of available sharpenings
GLUE-LINE BLADES--4.0mm (.157“) kerf
Ø Better finish than moulder blank blades, with minimal saw marks.
Ø Product is ready for gluing or other secondary processing.
Ø Reduced radial angles decrease run time, creating more drag, heat and buildup, which means fewer available sharpenings.
THIN KERF BLADES--2.8mm (.110“) kerf
Ø Offer savings on wood consumption
Ø Reduced stability, so attaining a glue-line finish is difficult, but not impossible.
Ø Generally, blade characteristics are similar to those of glue-line blades.
