Exactly what I expected and ordered.

After buying several different blades at local big box stores and having them not fit, I liked how easy it was to order the correct blade. I will continue to just order when I need them rather than buying what I cannot

Carbon Thin Gauge

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 cutting of a variety of easy to cut materials and due to thin gauges, they are also idea for cutting curves and contour work

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.

Thin gauge blades are suitable for small machines used for DIY or hobby work, usually with a blade length of 72″ (1830mm) or less. They are made from carbon steel and are general purpose blades suitable for cutting wood, metal and many other materials.

• 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 these 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.
