To cut wood fast, you normally want to go with a circular or table saw, but the blades often leave rough spots and can also rip out tiny chunks of material, which makes your edge look like crap. Then you spend lots of time sanding the piece to make it nice and smooth. The Final Cut system claims to eliminate that post-cut sanding completely — a pair of sanding discs, one on each side of the blade, allows it to cut and sand the workpiece at the same time.
You can opt for the 40-tooth Final Cut blade with the discs or just the discs themselves. We’re not yet sure how well it works, but anything that claims to cut down on sanding time has our attention. It’s a bit on the steep side at $74 for the blade and the discs or $73 for six pairs of discs, but we’re still tempted by the prospect of less sanding.
