What Are The Best Bandsaw Blades For Woodworking?

Sawblade.com.au recommends ripper blades as the first choice for bandsaw blades for woodworking. Ripper blades are available in two tiers – carbon ripper blades and bi-metal ripper blades.

  • Carbon Ripper Blades: Carbon ripper blades are the standard version and are designed specifically for cutting timber and resaw applications.
  • Bi-metal Ripper Blades: These blades are the best woodworking blades that we recommend. Bi-metal ripper blades cut through hardwood or thicker wood and promise cleaner cuts, longer life, and improved performance.

Our bandsaw blades are best suitable for portable sawmills, lumbar mills and sawmilling machines. Our bandsaw blades are best used for cutting and sawing logs and splitting wood. The TPI of our blades is between 1 and 3.

Where Does the Steel Come From?

We source our steel from Germany.

What if I Cannot Find the Right Bandsaw Blades For Woodworking?

If you do not find the blade that fits your machine, we can custom make it as per your specifications. Logon to our website and send the length and width of your machine to us. However, you need to keep in mind that the maximum width is 1.5 inch.

What is the Blades Tool Life?

The tool life depends on usage. The Carbon blades can last from 2-3 weeks to a month if used daily. However, the Bi-Metal blades can last from a month to two before they need to be resharpened.

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.
