Product Description

We offer four blades:

150mm x 22.23/20mm Economy this is our Premium Fine Turbo Blade with a standard 22.23mm bore and fitted with a reducing ring to 20mm. It’s ideal for a clean finish on softer stone such as limestone, softer slate marble, some softer granites, Max-Top quartz.

160mm x 22.23/20mm Pro turbo blade is orignally designed for porcelain and has performed well in 20mm and 30mm thick quartz worktops and also quartz tiles. Will also cut some softer stones but prefers a more dense material. In Quartz this will have a substantially longer lifespan than our Economy blade.

150mm x 22.23/20mm Red Laser welded segmented blade for hard and abrasive stone such as granite, sandstone and concrete. Not quite as clean a finish as the turbo blades, but agressive and faster where other blades can’t cope.

150mm x 22.23/20mm Yellow turbo blade for 20mm porcelain. This is your blade of choice for porcelain of any thickness upto 20mm.


Blade Use

Whilst these blades are all re purposed to work in carpentry saws, the inherent design of a plunge saw means it cuts on the upstroke which is the opposite way around to a tile saw or how you would naturally use an angle grinder. This can lead to chipping in some products. If it’s a product you’ve not cut before there is an element of trial and error as to the best way to cut it, either full depth in one pass or two or three passes at a much lower depth of cut.

As a rule of thumb we generally suggest running the saw at it’s full speed which tends to be in the region of 6,000rpm and trying a full depth cut to start with. If that isn’t giving the desired finish then it’s time to try shallower cuts.
