Schluter Metal Blade?

Hey guys,
Am I delirious or did I once read somewhere that Schluter makes a blade specifically designed to cut their edge metals in a miter saw? If not, does anyone have a good suggestion on what kind of blade to get? I been using their stair nosing a lot lately and a power miter saw would certainly make things easier. I thought maybe just a normal cut-off wheel would be the ticket but it might wander a bit due to it's flimsiness. Thanks for any thoughts on this matter, Jeff.

There are many different manufacturers that offer them. Just search for "Non-Ferrous Metal" blade in whatever size your miter saw is.

Schluter does make a set of hand snips for the PVC profiles.

I know it's not good for the blade, but I just cut it on my wet saw. Can get a nice clean cut and miters come out great.

I hope you don't do stainless with your wet saw blade.

you can use an abrasive type blade but those tend to melt softer metals like brass and aluminum and you end up with alot of flash (excess metal) tha you need to scrape or file off of each cut afterwards. A blade with a high tooth count is a better choice for soft metals.

I have always used my wetsaw for any of the edges I have put in for near 20 years now.

the Schluter trim along with the CTC edge and terrazzo strips cut fine with it.

and yeah you can re dress the blade with a stone or cinder block.
