Features include oversize teeth that can tolerate numerous sharpenings and a heat-resistant coating that protects against gumming. Blades are available in 10- and 12-inch diam meters with multiple tooth configurations for use on table saws and miter saws. The company also released an 8-inch stacked dado set.
