Like circular saw blades, those made for masonry work come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. They feature hardened steel teeth for evenly slicing through even the toughest of workpieces. Joining the list in this update is the Bosch DB1041S, which features a segmented design for long-term performance, along with evenly distributed, industrial-grade diamonds for precision cutting. Its tensioned steel core provides reliable stability. It’s a practical solution for general-purpose cutting tasks, and it’s ideal for work with pavers, soft brick, concrete, and ceramic or stone tiles.
Entering the top spot is the DeWalt DeWalt DW4725 4-1/2-Inch, a diamond-edged blade geared toward efficient removal of material, and it will hold up well under extensive use. You’ll reap the benefits of a high cutting speed and minimal dust production, thanks to its thin kerf design.
Leaving the list in today’s update is the Zenith Industries ZN180008, due to issues with durability. Whichever blade you choose, make sure it’s compatible with your saw. For your own safety, always wear adequate eye protection and follow all instructions and safety warnings provided by the manufacturer of your blade and your saw. Always unplug your machine when you're changing accessories or performing any maintenance to it.
