Topic tags/keywords: saw blade blade

Got a quick question.

I recently acquired several 10” saw blades that a cabinet company were no longer using. Here are the details about the saw blades.

1” arbor
60T
Each blade is extremely heavy and thick. Measures 1/4” thick
Around the arbor are 5 smaller holes which are countersunk on one side for what looks like small bolts.
Each tooth is beveled in the same direction. If you were to put it on the saw the bevel would run from top left to bottom right.

Does anyone know what these blades went on? Was getting some extra blades for my table saw and miter saw, but when I inspected them more closely I wasn’t for sure. They were free and in excellent shape, been re-sharpened and everything :)

No pictures unless needed then when I get home I can post some.

Thanks,

Kevin

This is what the blade looks like, but it has the protective rubber coating on the teeth and dust all over it. The ones I have look almost new.

I believe this is the back side and the front are counter sunk on those smaller holes.

I think Bruce is correct, they are from a gang rip saw.

I had a 1/4” x 10” blade with 3/8” teeth made for cutting the female sliding dovetail on drawer sides. When mounted in the saw, the teeth are as you described. On the blades you just got, all you would need to do is get a 1” x 5/8” adapter to fit your saw if that’s your arbor size. I don’t think the holes would present a problem unless the saw plate is thin.
You did mentioned 1/4” thick. Is that the plate or is it the teeth? ................. Jerry (in Tucson)

Thanks guys,

I’m pretty sure the teeth and plate are 1/4” or really close to it. I know they are extremely sharp (lol) and the blade is much heavier and thicker than my other full kerf blades.

I’ll post a pic of my blade when I get home of different angles also.

I did find some 1” to 5/8” arbor adapters on amazon at a pretty good deal that would work. Just trying to figure out if these blades can used and what they were used for :)

Here are some pics of the saw blade. As you can see one blade has the teeth beveled to the left while the other blade they are to the right.

You can see from the pics how thick the blade is.

Is it possible they are the outside blades for a 10” diam. dado? I can’t figure out why a gang saw would want to make such a wide kerf, as that would be wasteful of wood. Admittedly, I have never used a gang saw.

Looking at the with that perspective it would cut a dado with just one blade for 1/4 plywood. We have a gang rip saw at work, never took a close look at the blades on it, but I think on Monday I will though. True, it would be a lot of wood wasted.
