Gemini Standard 80 Grit Blade Kit
Standard Blade - (part #1042) Stained glass pattern and all around multi purpose cutting blade. Its cutting action is omni-directional. This is to say that the blade cuts the glass in any direction. This round blade has a cutting surface on all outer surfaces. This style blade makes pattern cutting very easy because the user does not have to turn the piece while cutting but simply move it in any direction.
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.
