Let’s talk about which bandsaw blade to cut angle iron you need. What is angle iron? And why would you need to cut it? Angle iron is a construction material made of iron for joining infrastructure at an L shaped angle. It’s often used in construction for joining structural steel parts.
So, what bandsaw blade to cut angle iron do you really need? At SawBlade we recommend the Bi-alfa Cobalt M42. The Bi-alfa cobalt bandsaw blade has HSS-M42 cutting tips and high wear resistance which result in hard and evenly distributed carbides in the tooth tips.
The ideal TPI for this blade is a variable pitch TPI. This is to reduce vibration when cutting. Variable pitch TPI means the teeth change inch per inch (for example: 6 teeth on 1 inch of the blade and 10 on the other). For cutting angle iron, opt for a variable TPI of 6 and 10 or 8 and 12. Our biggest tip when it comes to cutting angle iron, cut slow and let the blade do the work. Another great tip: coolant. Coolant will be your best friend. It’s the key to keeping your bandsaw blade running smoothly.
