Gemini Mega 80 Grit Blade Kit
Mega Blade - (part #1045) This heavy duty blade is hungry for whatever you can feed it. It is almost unbreakable so it is great for class settings. It has an opinion about which way it likes to cut because of its shape which is basically tear dropped. The round part of the tear drop faces outward and the pointed part faces inward. This means it cuts faster when pulling towards yourself and slower pushing away and slowest sideways. Its kerf is the same as a standard blade when pushing and pulling but it leaves a wide swath the same as a standard blade when pushing and pulling but it leaves a wide swath sideways. That said you can cut whatever you can fit into the mouth of the saw and the shape allows for creative shaping. Cutting action is omni-directional in thin material like stained glass but more forward and backward cutting for thicker harder materials. Leaves a smooth edge.
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.
