1042 Gemini Taurus 3 & Apollo Standard Blade Kit
Gemini Standard Diamond Blade Kit for Taurus 3 and Apollo
The standard blade is the perfect choice for cutting stained glass pattern and an all around multi-purpose cutting blade.
- Original replacement blade fits the Gemini Tile Shaper, Taurus 2, and Taurus 3 and Apollo saws
- Omni-directional blade has the ability to cut at the same speed and kerf in any direction
- 360 degree diamond coating allows the blade to cut quickly while grinding the edge, leaving it smooth
- Comes with 2 orange grommets (part no. 0485)
- Note: Do not use for ceramic tile, 3/8" fused glass pieces or thick material in general
How To Use
- All blades cut the same materials: glass, tile, stone, shell, nonferrous metals, hard plastics such as acrylic and lexan, and anything that has a similar density to these materials
- All blades use the same belt and grommets. Blades are interchangeable with the same belt and grommets and do not need to be changed unless they are excessively worn
- Always let the blade do the cutting. Forcing the blade through the material in a hurry will not only cause a slower cut but can also shorten the blade life
- There is an optimum speed for each blade in each material; you can feel it while you are cutting. Sensitivity to this causes extremely long blade life at which you get maximum cutting speed for minimal pressure

Taurus 3 standard blade
by Brian L -
Ordered three of these and they showed up 3 days later (even with standard shipping). Conractors Direct really came through on this. So much so that I've ordered the separator blade (x2) from them as well.

These are the original blades for the Taurus 3 Ring Saw. Everywhere I purchased in the past broke within three days. I am so happy I found this place to purchase the original blades. Plus they were delivered quickly and in great shape. Thank you for being online and a reputable source.
Good for artists
