Saw blade
« on: March 14, 2018, 01:47 PM »
I have a potential job coming up cutting a acrylic shower surround . I have been pouring over the catalogue and  website and can’t make heads or tails on which blade to use.
So what blade will I use to cut acrylic ? Shane?

The instructions say a low tooth by -metal blade for a jigsaw,but I need a better cut than that ,and I don’t have a guild rail attachment for my Trion.
Thanks,Charlie
Btw would a -55 saw do it or my TS-75?

Yes, you can cut it with the TS saw. I personally don't have experience with this application, so I let's see what Festool USA recommends. But, I believe the laminate blade would be the blade of choice at a lower speed to prevent melting.

Triple chip, negative rake blade, run and feed fairly slow with a TS 55 or 75.
Fine toothed down cut blade on a Trion freehand slow speed again and a low angle block plane to clean up.
Oh! If you clamp a rail so the base plate of the Trion can run against the non splinter guard edge that could work almost as well as the Trion guide, I have one and used it to good effect on trimming door edges that had numerous copper and iron pins embedded in them.
