    Long Lasting Cold Saw Blades

    Cutting metal is an operation that gradually wears down the blade used. That is the nature of metals coming into contact with each other abrasively. As such, the importance of long lasting cold saw blades can’t be overstated if you are in the metal working industry.

    Lifespan of the Cold Saw Blade

    On average, cold saw blades last for around six months of constant use. This can typically be translated to being able to complete around 800 to 1000 cuts before wearing out completely. Also, over this period, they can be sharpened around 30 to 40 times.

    This lifespan can be attributed to the blade being made out of either high-speed steel(HSS) or tungsten-carbide tips(TCT). Both materials are able to produce hardness in the blades and thus, give them increased resistance to wear. HSS blades, with their high tungsten and molybdenum content, naturally have high abrasion and wear resistance. TCT blades are forged with a compound that is approximately twice the stiffness and density of steel. This gives it a superior hardness and ability to withstand higher temperatures.

    Sharpening Cold Saw Blades

    Both HSS and TCT blades have the ability to be resharpened when they grow dull. However, there are some factors to consider before sharpening the blade:

    1. Is there frequent tearing when cutting?
    2. Is there an excessive amount of chipping?
    3. Are there any damaged or blunt teeth?
    4. Is the blade no longer able to follow the cutting line?

    So there you have it. Here are some of the reasons why cold saw blades are so long lasting. If you’re ever interested in purchasing one, why not visit Our Store where we stock a variety of cold saw blades that can be customised to your specifications.

    2. Great job, now select the Width (mm)

    3. Select the Length (mm) (Round up to the Closest Increment)(Round up to the Closest Increment)

    3. Now Enter the Exact Length in (mm) (Made to your Order)

    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.
