10 Signs You Need A Bandsaw Blade Replacement
  • Broken Bandsaw Blade

Do you know when you need a bandsaw blade replacement? Can you spot the signs? Here are the top 10 signs you need to know. Once you spot them, it’s important to purchase a bandsaw blade replacement ASAP.

  1. Teeth stripping
  2. Slow cutting
  3. Harder pressure needed (you may notice you need to use more pressure when using the blade)
  4. Feed rate issues
  5. Heat build up (not only does this negatively impact your blade, but it also puts a strain on your machine)
  6. Strange or loud noises
  7. Burn marks (can be both on the blade, or the machine)
  8. Hairline cracks in the blade
  9. Blade doesn’t move consistently
  10. Strange or unusual smells when cutting

These signs can also occur if you’ve paired the incorrect blade with a material. For example, using a bandsaw blade used for wood to cut metal. Using the wrong blade can be a sure fire way to negatively speed up your blades life.

So, how long is a bandsaw blade life? This is a difficult question. Because, more often than not, it’s down to trial and error.

It all depends on blade type, machine, cutting material, and what it’s being used for. If you’d like a life estimate for your chosen blade, contact us here at SawBlade.com.au with this information, and we can provide an estimate and information on how much the blade can withstand.

The number of teeth per inch (TPI) defines the pitch of the blade and can vary from 1 to 32 tpi.

On some blades there are different pitches on the same blade. You must select the correct tpi for the thickness of material you are cutting. If the corrrect tpi is not chosen the blade life will be dramatically shortened.

The general rule of thumb is: For wood and soft materials aim ffor 3-6 teeth in the work piece.
