Produced by one of the main Japanese suppliers of this type of high-quality blade specifically for the Jointmaker Pro.
Crosscut A Blade: .4mm x 28 tpi; kerf of 0.018; Most commonly used blade
Crosscut B Blade: .3mm x 32 tpi; Used with softer woods of smaller dimensions.
Crosscut C Blade: .4 mm x 28 tpi; kerf of 0.023” for StewMac Fret Wire. Allows luthiers to cut 0.023” fret slots in a single pass. It has a slightly thicker crosscut blade which may have an appeal for those who are cutting dense woods.
Rip Blade: .4mm x 16 tpi; Gives a great finish on rip cuts but periodically cleaning wood fibers that may be embedded in the gullets (with an old toothbrush) may be necessary in between cuts depending on the species of the wood. Useful for cutting tenons and dovetails.
i typically just use the rip blades, but the cross cut are markedly better when doing a cross cut.
Quick and easy layout tool, comfortable in pant pockets and in the hands, solid bevel lock down, great to look at, perfect dovetail marking.
