Final Cut 7-1/4" Blade
A couple years ago, we reviewed something called the Final Cut Saw Blade. It's really nothing more than a piece of sandpaper stuck to a saw blade. At first, it sounds pretty goofy, but it actually works pretty well, not only with making a nice, smooth cuts, but also with preventing kick-back and blade binding.
After releasing 10" and 12" blades, Final Cut has moved on to the next inevitable step, the 7-1/4" blade. Now, you can have that same sanding/cutting action with your standard old circ saw.

The blades cost $20 and will be available at finalcutblade.com

THE FINAL CUT SAW BLADE
NOW IN A 7-1/4" BLADE
Cuts And Sands For A Fine Finish With One Pass
Jefferson City, MO (February 2010) -With the popularity of the 10" and 12" Final Cut Saw Blade (www.finalcutblade.com) growing across the country, people have been wondering why they can't get one for their circular saw? Well now they can.
Available for the first time is a 7-1/4" Final Cut Saw Blade for use on a standard circular saw. The new 7-1/4" Final Cut Saw Blade turns a circular saw into a cutting and sanding tool, offering a fine finish with every cut. It is the perfect blade for woodworkers, carpenters, contractors and the serious do-it-yourselfer who want to save time by not having to sand the work piece after cutting.
"The 10" and 12" Final Cut blades have been well received by woodworkers and contractors, but people kept asking for one for their circular saw," said Dave Perrey, a full-time contractor and inventor of the Final Cut Saw Blade. "Our new 7-1/4" Final Cut blade works as well as the bigger blades and produces a fine finish with every cut."
Like the larger blades, the new 7-1/4" Final Cut Saw Blade features sanding discs on each side of the blade that allow it to cut and sand the work piece at the same time. Everyone who has used a Final Cut Saw Blade appreciates that, due to its unique design, it reduces kick back, and eliminates binding and heat build up for longer blade life.
The abrasive disc is actually wider than the blade kerf, therefore the stock is cut by the blade and sanded by the disc. Thus, each cut produces a fine, double-sided finish that eliminates the need for sanding.
Designed for cross cuts and rips on soft and hard materials, the Final Cut Saw Blade produces precision cut joints and fine finished edges every time. The user can even make minor length adjustments by simply sliding the work piece towards the rotating blade, using it just like a disc sander.
How long will the Final Cut Saw Blade last? It all depends on the material being cut. For example, if you are cutting 2-1/4" pine casing, the blade and sandpaper will make about 2,000 cuts before you need to resharpen the blade or replace the sandpaper, and in many cases by just changing the sandpaper disc you can continue to make fine finish cuts even with a dull blade.
The 7-1/4" Final Cut Saw Blade costs just $19.95 and is available at www.finalcutblade.com, or you can call toll-free 1-866-305-0219. Replacement sanding discs are also available and easy to install.
