The Mega blade works with the Taurus 3 Ring Saw. Engineered with a special "tear drop" shape that makes this an extremely strong and durable blade. This blade is used differently than the standard Omni- directional blades. It cuts mainly on the front and back, so to create a curve you will guide the material around the blade. It cuts faster when pulling towards yourself and slower pushing away and slowest sideways. The Mega blade is so rigid that it has the ability to damage the saw itself if used improperly by pushing too hard. So keep in mind the "golden rule" to let the saw do the cutting and do not force the material. The Mega blade will cut dense materials such as marble, granite and porcelain up to 3/4" thick. Includes grommets.
The flocked belt (sold separately) #5750 is recommended for use with this blade, providing the best blade support and stability while cutting.
