Gemini Dichroic 80 Grit Blade Kit

Dichroic Blade - (part #1049) NEW! This is the slim blade but coated it in super fine grit so that it does not chip even the thinnest of dichroic glass. Its cut is super quick and leaves the smoothest edge of all of the blades allows the use of lower firing temperatures in the manufacture of jewelry and the like. Neat crisp edges add a note of professionalism with this blade. Its action is omni-directional.

  • What to Avoid: Do not use for ceramic tile, 1/4" fused glass pieces, or thick material in general.
  • Average Blade Life: 40-60 hours
  • Made in the USA. Use only genuine Gemini replacement parts. Failure do do so voids warranty. 

Tutorial on how to replace a blade

Gemini Taurus 3 blades - FYI - Important Information:

1) All blades cut the same materials: glass, tile, stone, shell, nonferrous metals, hard plastics such as acrylic and lexan, and anything that has a similar density to these materials.

2) All blades use the same belt and grommets. Blades are interchangeable with the same belt and grommets and do not need to be changed unless they are excessively worn.

3) Always let the blade do the cutting. Forcing the blade through the material in a hurry will not only cause a slower cut but can also shorten the blade life. There is an optimum speed for each blade with each material; you can feel it while you are cutting. Sensitivity to this issue promotes long blade life. Find that cutting point at which you get maximum cutting speed with minimal pressure.
