I don’t think so. The fiber cement blades have very few teeth and basically tear out chunks of fiber cement.

No, fiber cement siding is only 5/16” thick and the blades is basically a modified grinding blade. All you will do to hardwood is burn your way thru veeerrry sloooowly.

I have a flooring saw that takes a 5” blade which I can’t find replacement blades for readily. The fiber blades are available.
Thanks for the assistance all!

You could use it if you wanted a burn smell in the shop forever, or a piece that had a “burnt Look” to it. (laughing)
