Carbon Flexback

The flexback carbon bandsaw blades are produced to provide more reliable cutting performance, increased fatigue resistance, and tougher teeth than other leading bandsaw blades.

We produce them with superior carbon-rich steel and use our unique factory welding process to ensure the integrity of the join that creates the loop. This all adds up to optimum strength and accuracy in every blade.

The flexible nature of the blade gives great adaptability for a variety of applications,

Suitable for cutting:

  • Wood
  • Non-ferrous metals (aluminium, copper, brass)
  • Plastic

Standard order processing/manufacturing time is around 24-48hours

All orders placed before 4:00 pm Melbourne time go into production on the same day and dispatched the following afternoon.

Please Note: Bandsaw blades under the PREMIUM CATEGORY which include "TCT Timber, Carbide Grit and Diamond Coated Bandsaw Blades can take up to 4 weeks to 3 months to be shipped due to high demand and complexity of the production process.

Night and Day

Just replaced on the stock blade on my bandsaw. The difference is night and day. I had no idea. With this blade the saw is quieter and better balanced. I feel like an idiot for waiting so long to replace the stock blade. I’ll be purchasing more of these when the time comes. Highly recommended!

I used to get my blades from a guy up north but it closed down during covid. Glad I found these guys, ordered different sizes and types for my 3 bandsaws. Delivery came within a week. Blades fit like a glove.

Excellent blade!

I’m using this on a standard 14″ band saw to cut bowl blanks 6-8″ diameter, ~5″ thick. Made a quick circle cutter (screw through a piece of 1/2″ plywood with guide rails at the bottom). I can take a piece of split firewood, and in <1min spin it through and get a perfect circle (so transitioning from rip to crosscut). the sawdust clears very well, and the kerf is wide enough to allow tight circles.

I Can Finally Resaw

I purchased a 6tpi blade thinking I could resaw, and it did not work. I purchased this blade and it cuts really well. I believe it is a combination of the hook blade and the 3tpi. I have an old craftsman bandsaw and I was going to upgrade, but now I will keep it a little longer. I can now do book match projects.

Wonderful for resawing. Get it. End the frustration.

I use my band saw frequently so I am always looking for better quality blades. The coarse teeth provided rapid and accurate ripping and even cross cutting is relatively smooth and the blades maintain their sharpness. Definitely recommended for woodworking “

Carbon Flexback

There is an 80/20 rule in the band saw world. 80% of machines are built with the teeth pointing one direction, while 20% are built with the teeth pointing the other. We weld all of our blades to comply with the 80%. Thankfully, there is a simple solution. If your teeth are pointing in the wrong direction, place your hands at 9 and 3 (think of a clock).

While pinching the blade between your fingers and thumbs, rotate your hands so that the blade will flip itself “inside out”. The teeth should now be pointing in the right direction.

• Carbon steel blades are usually the best choice for sawing wood, plastic, aluminum, and similar easy-to-cut materials.

• Bi-Metal blades have the best balance of heat resistance, wear resistance, and chip resistance to productively saw most steels and other metals.

• Tungsten Carbide blades provide superior heat and wear resistance for sawing extremely tough metals or very abrasive metals and non-metals.

The answer to this question depends on (A) What type of metal you plan to cut and (B) How often/how much you plan to cut.

Carbon Steel blades can be used to cut the following: mild steels, aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, and other non ferrous metals. If you only plan to use your machine every now and again, or only have a few pieces to cut, a carbon steel blade will work just fine.

If you use your machine often and plan to cut a lot of material, we suggest using a bi-metal blade. The best way to describe a carbon steel blade is it is an economical band saw blade used for general purpose cutting.

They are used for general purpose cutting of a variety of easy to cut materials including:
• mild steels
• copper
• wood
• plastic
• cork
• brass
• furniture
• resawing
• bronze
• zinc
• fiberglass
• non ferrous metal

Carbon Flexback Blades – These bandsaw blades are made from a solid piece of carbon steel with a flexible back. Their teeth are heat treated to retain their sharp edge.

Carbon blades are a low cost alternative on easy to cut material. Carbon blades have an excellent fatigue factor to give long saw blade life on bandsaws running at high speed, cutting non-ferrous metal, and wood. Its flexible backer is also suitable for absorbing contour cutting stresses.

• To Achieve A Smoother, More Refined Cut Choose A Blade That Has More TPI

• The More TPI, The Finer The Cut Will Be; The Fewer Teeth Per Inch, The Rougher The Cut Will Be

• High TPI Configurations Should Be Used On Thinner Materials And May Require A Reduced Material Feed Rate

• Low TPI Configurations Should Be Used On Thicker Materials And May Require A Higher Feed Rate

There are many types of band saws that can use flexback saw blades including Jet, Wilton, Kalamazoo, Tannewitz, Doall, Grizzly, Harborfreight, Powermatic, Wears, 14″ bandsaws, Hyd-Mech and many others. Any light to medium duty vertical bandsaw or horizontal bandsaw typically run carbon bandsaw blades.

Most hobbyists and craftsmen with a bench top bandsaw or a 2 or 3 wheel bandsaw prefer the many benefits of using these types of bandsaw blades.

• When Cutting Curves, The Width Of The Blade Will Determine The Smallest Radius That May Be Cut

• Wide Blades Are Most Often Used For Resawing Or Straight Line Cuts

• Smaller Width Blades Are Used For Smaller Radius Cut

Purchase Your Blade

1. Select the width you require

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

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

Length is not correct, changed to maximum allow length.

Adjust the wheels of the machine to their correct position (about the middle of the adjustment range)

  • Refering to the diagram below, measure the distance between the centre point of each wheel in mm (measurement D).
  • Now measure the radius of each wheel in mm (R1 and R2).
  • Use this formula to calculate the band length

Video on how to select the Length

3. 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 bandsaw blades there are different pitches on the same blade referred to as Vari-Pitch

You must select the correct TPI for the thickness of material you are cutting. If the correct TPI is not chosen the blade life will be dramatically reduced.
