      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

Fein MultiMaster Teak Blades for Boat Deck Repair : My deck seams are 3/16" what size Fein cutter should I buy?

4 posts in this topic

I would use a 3/16. The blade needs to touch the wood to remove all of the old sealant. Fein USA lists this number as their 3/16 model, 6 39 03 202 01 9. I think that would be the Jamestown Distributors 5mm blade.

I found that the smallest blade works best. I take the seam out in 2 passes so the blade should be a little bigger than half of your total seam width.

I have 2 blades - 1 is a little smaller than my deck seam. The second one is equal to the width and it works much better. You can angle the blade slightly to pick up residual caulk. With a little practice, you get pretty good.
