CMT Orange Chrome Combination Blade 10" x T50 ATB+TCG (1/8" Full Kerf)

Jonathan's Hot Take Description:

This is one of the top professional combination blades on the market for good reason. The carbide teeth are massive, and it’s amazing at removing a lot of material while keeping the cut cool. 

When I’m bouncing between rip and cross cuts in hard or soft wood, this is the blade I reach for. Because it has 50 teeth that alternate between ATB and TCG, it really excels at getting decent rip and cross cuts in thicker boards. 

If you're cutting a lot of rip or crosscuts, I would go with a dedicated blade for those. If you're cutting a lot of plywood, I would go with the 40 tooth general purpose blade, or one of the higher-tooth fine finish blades (60t/80t/96t). 

This combination blade is tied with the general purpose blade as my most used blade in the shop. It’s my go-to for making jigs and smaller projects without a lot of milling.

The chrome coating makes it easy to clean, which really extends its life. These new models have 3 additional patents that increase stabilization and keep the blade cooler. 

CMT blades are now approved for Sawstop, and if you're looking for a top tier blade at a big box store price, this is definitely the line to go with. 

I recommend a full kerf blade for woodworkers who want greater precision, years of sharpenings out of one blade, and have saws with more than 1.5 hp. 

I’ve been putting my reputation behind these CMT Chrome blades for a couple years now, and I couldn't be more proud to be carrying them in my store. You’ll absolutely love any blade in this line. I guarantee they’re on par with any high end blade on the market.

RE-SHARPENING INFO Re-Sharpening details are laser engraved on the back of the blade for accurate, full proof, re-sharpening angle information.KEEP YOUR PACKAGING FOR SAFE STORAGE OF YOUR BLADE AND SHIPPING TO SHARPENER. THESE BLADES HAVE EXTRA LARGE, PREMIUM TEETH DESIGNED FOR MULTIPLE SHARPENINGS.


LASER-CUT PREMIUM QUALITY STEEL PLATE BODY- Made with 46-48 HRC precision select high-quality harmonic steel from Germany laser-cut to perfection provides tighter tolerances, longer life and more accurate cuts.


LASER-CUT HEAT EXPANSION SLOTS -  Engineered to allow blade expansion when heat build-up occurs from use, preventing blade warping.


TENSIONING - A visible tensioning ring on our blade body is machine and operation tuned for maximum performance providing more stability during the cut. BODY


FLATNESS - Blade body flatness is obtained via a proprietary straightening procedure which delivers substantially reduced tolerances


CHROME PLATED - Chrome plating protects the blade from corrosion, rust, resin and residue build-up, dramatically extending the blade life and making maintenance fast and easy. Plating significantly reduces the motors absorbed power so the blade moves smoothly throughout the cutting operation. Blade plating surface hardness: 380-400 Vickers.


LASER-CUT SLOTS FILLED WITH SOUND-DAMPENING POLYURETHANE Damping polyurethane reduces vibration and noise by 25% compared to standard non-filled saw blades while improving cutting quality and extending blade life. Strategically positioned slots near the toothed crown provide superior vibration isolation and shock absorption. National Noise Emission Standard & Regulations compliant.


CMT XTREME BALANCING* Our patent pending Xtreme Balancing System delivers extremely accurate dynamic blade balancing, which is magnitudes above and beyond what is currently available in the marketplace. Each blade undergoes rigorous assessment and in the event micro-imbalance is detected, appropriate correction holes will be applied. This translates to precise cutting, longer blade life, reduced vibration, lower noise and less wear and tear on your machine components. * TRADEMARK & PAT. PEND.


TEETH:


INDUSTRIAL CHROME CARBIDE Specially formulated chrome carbide ensures cutting teeth stay sharp longer while reducing cutting edge abrasion, improving cut quality and prolonging life.


TRI-METAL BRAZING Our Silver-Copper-Silver Tri-Metal Tooth Brazing handles high stress and heavy impact associated with cutting hard wood and composite material.


PRECISION MIRROR FINISH SHARPENING Each tooth is precision ground on a multi-axis CNC machine which creates perfect edge angles that delivers extra-clean cutting performance and extended life. Featuring less than 0.25 μm Rmax in edge roughness.

    Best Blade for Price

    I have used Freud up till this blade. I will never look back, this blade cut through Purpleheart and left no blade marks at all. A first for my old table saw. The review of these blades by Jonathan was invaluable and helped me become a better woodworker.

    CMT 10" Table Saw Blade

    Read all of the reviews and comments on multiple websites and decided to give this one a try. I have Freud and Forrest blades for the table saw and have been pleased with their cuts. I just finished cutting up some Jatoba, red oak and hard maple for three different projects and the results were great. Very clean rips and crosscuts once I got the feel for the speed that I needed to maintain with the new blade. I actually was going too slow and getting some burn marks in all three of the woods and speeding the rate up solved that problem. Recommend this blade - especially when it is on sale!

    Cuts wood like butter

    I have been using this blade to rip and crosscut hickory. It cuts smooth without burning the wood. My new favorite blades! I purchased some 6.5" cmt blades for my circular saw. Same result, these blades are outstanding.

    I love this blade...

    I decided to give this blade a try...I have to say...I think it's an amazing blade. It rips and crosscuts like a knife through butter leaving a fine cut behind. No splintering. And even though it's not necessarily a factor - it's actually a really eye pleasing too. Beautiful chrome blade. I'm a relatively noob to woodcrafting...but I've tried a few blades...as an all purpose blade that produces fine and accurate cuts....get this one!
