Spyder Tarantula Saw Blades Features
With 40- and 60-tooth blades joining the lineup of Spyder fine-finish saw blades, you now have better solutions for cutting hardwoods. Even the best circular saw needs a decent blade to perform well. When cutting oak, cherry, heart pine, and other harder materials, having a good fine finish blade makes all the difference.
To help out with the clean finish, the Spyder Tarantula fine-finish blades feature an antifriction coating that enables smoother cuts with less binding. Polymer-filled stabilization vents also minimize vibrations, heat warping, and noise. Often, you can test the vibration reduction of a saw blade simply by holding it in the middle and striking it with a small metal object. If it rings loudly, the vibration likely won’t do much. If it dulls the hit then you have something that effectively deadens the blade vibration.
The teeth on these saw blades feature a nickel-cobalt blend. As we’ve seen, some of the best drill bits for metal use a similar combination to reduce heat and add cutting strength. Spyder claims their blades should outlast the more conventional carbide-tooth saw blades by up to 6 times. That makes for a bold claim and one we look forward to testing for ourselves in the shop.
You can pick up the Spyder Tarantula 7-1/4″ fine-finish circular saw blades exclusively at your local Lowe’s Home Improvement store, or online at Lowes.com. The 40-tooth model retails for $14.98, while the 60-tooth ultra-fine-finish blade prices out at $21.98.
