What is Tungsten?

Tungsten, in its raw form, is a rare metal that is often brittle and hard to work with. It is also strong, at least 10 times hard than 18K Gold and 5 times hard than tool steel. 

Tungsten Steel

Tungsten steel is any material that has tungsten in it as part of its alloy element. While it may not seem like a commonly used steel because it doesn’t change shape when youcut it, it is excellent at:

  • Can take extreme heat;
  • Handles wear and tear; and
  • It isn’t as likely to corrode.

Due to these elements, it is generally used for micro drill bits, high durability shelf-sharpening blades and interestingly rocket engine nozzles.

What Bandsaw Blade to Cut Tungsten Steel?

The type of bandsaw blade to cut tungsten steel depends on the thickness of the material.

For thicker steel, you are going to need to use a harder, stronger blade. For measurements between 3-4 inches, the best option is the Bi-Metal M51. This blade has a high thermal and mechanical wear resistance, and its tooth form makes it suitable for cutting thick, solid higher-grade alloy materials.

Anything above 4 inches is better suited to a high-speed steel Coldsaw blades which have carbide grit teeth that are very strong and heat resistant and perfect for cutting abrasive materials such as tungsten steel.

Length is not correct, changed to maximum allow length.

4. Select the TPI (Teeth Per Inch)

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.
