Tuckpoint Blades Single, Double, Triple


Thoughts on tuckpoint blades? Such as the sandwich Bosch DD4510H, or do guys prefer the single blades?

Re: Tuckpoint Blades Single, Double, Triple


I like the double and triple blades because they keep the width as they wear down as opposed to a single blade which gets more narrow.

The only problem I have with sandwich type blades like that is they have a tendency to throw more large debris

For example with a regular single tuckpoint blade regular safety glasses are enough where as the sandwich type blade you need a face shield because the chips blast your face

You need all three to fit various joint widths. I'ts not one size fits all.

Re: Tuckpoint Blades Single, Double, Triple


I understand needing many blades I guess the question was centered around how Windycity put it about chips flying more with the sandwich blades.

I was thinking that in the back of the cut with a single blade there is a better chance to not have a sliver left behind like what the double sandwich blade might leave because in some cases you would be limited to how much you could move that blade up and down

Yes, absolutely you need several blades, I probably have about 20 of them

You donít really need a face shield, although itís not a bad idea but it just seems like when i use the sandwich blades my face gets blasted alot more than the regular blades

Itís not a deal breaker but its something i noticed while using them

They work great for clean up of slivers and mortar left on edges of brick with hard mortar,they also work great with soft lime mortar,way less dust than grinder. On hard mortar not cut first with grinder,I would not endorse them in that capacity.
