TAURUS 3 RING SAW SLICER BLADE
(995 items available)
The Taurus 3 Slicer Blade - This is the thinnest blade and only cuts forward and backward. It can grind slightly left and right, but take your time and it will turn on a dime or smaller. Its action is just like that of a band saw but infinitely better in that you rotate the material into the blade as you are cutting but you can in the middle of the cut without binding and head off in any direction either backwards or forwards. This blade was developed for slicing material quickly with a thin kerf (.040, 1mm) and it is the blade we recommend for use with the Super Slicer, (a jig for slicing pattern bars and rods into thin repeatable wafers). Also it has finer diamond so the cut is even smoother than all the other blades except for the dichro blade. Use this blade with the heavy duty flocked belt to avoid splitting. This blade can turn on a dime and do very intricate designs once you get used to it. Glass fusers love it.
