  • Wood cutting blade for 4 1/2" hand held grinder?

    I know I've seen some guys with carbide tipped wood cutting blades on their makita 4 1/2 inch grinders. I've been looking for one online but couldn't find any carbide tipped wood cutting blades that would fit the grinder. The arbor size of 5/8 does not exist in my search. Can anyone tell me what blade will work. I checked my grinder and the arbor can take anything with a 16mm(5/8) cutout or a 22.23mm cutout. Thanks!

    Not sure if you are looking for carving or a more traditional 'saw blade'.
    These are more designed for carving

      Thanks wbrooks, but I was looking for more of a traditional wood cutting blade.

        If I understand you, you're planning on putting a toothed cutting blade on an angle grinder. Sounds like a dangerous set-up to me. Too hard to control any kick back. Also, if you do it, make sure any blade you use is rated for more than the grinder rpm, or those teeth may be imbedded in body parts.

          I see a lot of guys using these as jamb saws, there are some jamb saws on amazon which are nothing more than grinders with a carbide tipped blade.

              Ryan, those jam saws have a larger blade and a fence system that allows you to control the cut height. If you are hell bent on a 4.5" carbide saw blade (personally I think its dangerous) I would look for a replacement blade for a biscuit jointer or plate jointer.

                You might check out the Craftsman Twin-Blade Cutter.
                this thing will eat through all sorts of stuff - with no kickback. It is based on a 4 1/2" grinder, but the blades are 6 1/8".
                Unfortunately, it's not on the Sears site no more, but you will find plenty on Ebay.

                  philg, good reason why it's not on sears site. i tryed to demo 2 of them at at local sears. plugged them in and the blades and motor were smoking. the blades were too close to eachother. the principal behind this saw was that the 2 opposing blades spun oppisite rotation of eachother. good theory, but didn't work. i eventually bought 1 and used it 1 time. watch for it on ebay.

                  the blades that i've seen for the 4.5'' grinder were based on a chainsaw style blade. as far as a carbide tipped blade goes, no problem finding a small carbide blade. problem is the 10,000 rpm. i found a removable adjustable depth guide to fit my 4.5'' grinder. sort of looks like a cut off saw now. this gave me a way to adjust the depth of cut for precision work on tile walls. now i use an mk tile handheld tile saw. it's a small high speed diamond circ. saw that i use wet or dry.
