I've done some searching about Bullet Ind. and it seems everyone likes there products. How long do there cut off discs and flap discs last? Also I noticed some people on here have bought there carbide tip blade for a chopsaw. Those of you who have this blade, how long does it last on a average? Thanks

They have discontinued the 66 tooth and now only sell the 100T because the 48T didn't last long enough.
I just got my first 100T today and installed it.
I'll let you know, but after talking to them over the phone about it, I think the 100T blade will do fine.

For those of you who have & use a Dry Cut Saw or Abrasive(chop) Saw, there are some carbide tipped blades for ferrous & non-ferrous material that I use religiously....Freud Diablo. I have a Porter-Cable Dry Cut Saw that uses a 14" blade at 1300rpm. The 14" Freud blades are a C-7 grade tungsten tip, 72T, rated at 1800rpm. I bought 4 of these blades on E-Bay for $160 incl. shipping. They are $119 each at Lowes/H-Depot. These blades are not to be used on an abrasive saw that is usually rated at 3400-3800rpm. I have cut 1 1/2" X 1" solid steel without a whimper and I generally get between 600-800 cuts before the blades need re-sharpened. There is a fellow who does all our blades from work who also does my personal blades. My table saw is used to cut AL Diamondplate and I use a 10" Freud non-ferrous C-5 blade. That is the minimum hardness tooth blade I use(C-5) and it does very well for aluminum and have made over 700 cuts on AL and the blade is as sharp as new. I use WD-40 religiously on the 10" AL blade and material and have never had a blade clog with cuttings and the cut edge is very clean with a negligible burr. Also I will stress that any flat, square tubing or angle material be positioned so the blade cuts on the diagonal, not the flat surface. The flat surface will dull a blade very quickly. In addition, remember that a blade such as a 100T is for cutting <.125. A 60-80T will provide the longest life for thick metal >.125. There are a couple photos to show the Freud blades & cutting method I use. Hope this helps a bit....Denny

Nice simple cutting jig that will securely hold tube in desired position.
If work piece moves during cut carbide teeth will fly from blade.
