Diamond Blade for TS55 (202958)
« on: February 12, 2019, 11:58 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with this blade? Does the dust really not wreck the saw? I need to cut a significant amount of 1/2" Hardiebacker, and if this works well it will be a lifesaver.

I don’t have any experience with that particular blade, but I have used a CMT diamond blade to cut cementious backer board with both a TSC and an HKC. I’d suggest using a vac if you’re cutting a lot of sheets.

I've cut miles of fiber cement with the CMT blade, have not used the Festool blade.

Don't tell anyone, I mount the CMT fiber cement blade on the Kapex for cross cuts.
