Dry cut blade

What is your go to dry cut blade? I have used Alpha Katana blades for sometime. I have also used Diamax mesh blades when I can get them. Has anybody used Montolit dry cut blades?

Wish I could help you more, Karl. I don't really have a go to blade. For some reason every time I need one I have to buy whatever is available. I've had the same blade on my grinder for at least a year and I have no idea what brand it is.

ive tried alpha blades. both the 4"dry and the 10" in my dewalt. I'm not a fan of either. I thought the cuts where too rough. now I just use a contunious rim blade from hd. rigid I think.

I'm like davy my grinder blades are on for a year or so cause we don't do a lot of dry cutting. just for toilets and floor drains.any cut that is going to be seen usually gets cut on the wet saw. my go to blade for the wet saw is the pearl p4.

I have had good luck with the one in the first photo and the second one is curved makes cutting shower valve, toilet flange and floor drains a breeze. I didn't buy the curved one from that website it was just the first picture that came up. I found it somewhere else cheaper. If you are interested in getting 1 I will look through my email and figure out where I got it from

The mesh blades are the best in my opinion. You can make a cut with them and literally touch the blade after cutting and the blade won't feel hot.
