  • Final Cut

    I recently saw a video for a product called Final Cut. It is a sanding disk glued to a table saw or miter saw blade. It sands the wood while making the cut. Has any one ever done this? Is it practical?
    Thanks

    Yet another worthless gimmick IMO. With a good quality sharp blade installed on your saw you shouldn't need anything like that anyways.

      *Agreed*. Get a WW2 or Ridge Carbide, or high-end Freud and feeeeel the buttery smoothness.

      This sanding thing might well burn/burnish your edges. Never a good result.

        I put a soap dispenser on my table saw so I can wash dishes with it.

          Funny, before this I always thought of Apple's video editing software when someone referred to "Final Cut".
          "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
          John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

            Same, Bob! I thought this was some kind of Apple CNC table saw gizmo thing-a-ma-jiggy setup.

            Ah well....we can dream...

            I agree that a sanding disk on a TS blade will probably result in a very poor cut quality. I've used both the WWII and the Freud high-end blades and the cuts are very smooth. Sandpaper would just burn the wood.
            I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

              I tried one and wasn't overly impressed with the quality of the blade for the price. The sandpaper worked better than I expected until the adhesive gave out. Considering the cost and how long it takes to cleanup and reinstall new sandpaper vs just using a standard high quality blade and hitting exposed edges with a handplane, it's just not a feasible long term answer IMHO. Most cuts are hidden anyway, and most projects have very few have exposed edges....everything gets a final sanding before staining regardless....YMMV. I no longer have the blade or use the sandpaper.
