Clean Cut Wood

Nice clean cuts. I do tall heavy cuts and works great on day to day wood work.

Needed a skip tooth 1/2″ blade for my 14″ bandsaw to do some little resawing. This one’s price was good for this size, so tried it.
After methodically adjusting up all the aspects of my bandsaw as I installed this blade, it started cutting beautifully. First wood was some small branch logs of pear wood that I had kept from a friend’s fallen tree. The blade did not wonder and cut a surprisingly smooth face on the pieces. Almost could have sanded them smooth rather than sending them through the planer (but I did).
Several times now, I have used it for some simple shop bandsaw tasks on thick pieces of wood and it performed well. Plan to keep it in the saw as my normal “go-to” blade.
Next issue will be to see how long the sharpness lasts. If I don’t cut any nails with it, I think I will get a good lifetime from it.

Excellent Fit

Was bit concerned about the size. I was pleasantly surprised that it fit very well. In fact it is a better fit than the blade that came with the bandsaw.
Razor sharp and cuts well and considerably less drift than the original blade.

Got new blades for my bandsaw – works much better than the ones that came supplied with the machine ( brilliant ) “

Bi-metal Ripper Blades

Generally, the higher the amount of saw blade teeth, the better the quality of cut and finishing. If you’re looking for a faster and rougher cut, then a blade with fewer teeth will be more suitable.

For example, if you are cutting aluminium or a high quality finish when cutting laminate, you will want a higher number of teeth compared to blades for soft wood.

When blades have fewer teeth, they have deeper gullets (space in between teeth) which creates a more aggressive chiselling action.

A band saw can be used to cut curves, even in thick lumber, such as in creating cabriole legs, to rip lumber and to crosscut short pieces. The most common use for the band saw, however, is in cutting irregular shapes.

The second most common use is in resawing or ripping lumber into thinner slabs.14 Apr 2009

You should be able to sharpen your blade two or three times before needing to replace it, but sometimes breakage happens. Blade breakage can result from a range of situations. Common causes of blade breakage include: Dull teeth.

It’s really something that takes a little time to get a feel for. At some point, you will realize you have to push much harder than you used to for something as simple as a ripping operation.

You will also notice more burning on woods that didn’t burn before. In addition, you should notice more tearout on your cuts. If you don’t notice any of these changes, or they just aren’t that severe yet, then the blade is still sharp. The first time you notice these things, clean the blade. After 2-3 cleanings it’s time for a resharpening.

Carbon steel is the most common cost effective metal used to manufacture sawmill blades and performs well for high production.

Bi-Metal steel has been gaining popularity due to its durability and heat resistance, which keeps the blades sharp longer. They typically last 10x longer than carbon steel ones but come at a higher price.

When it comes to ripping – the coarser the better . a range between 1 to 2 TPI is recommended.

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.

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 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.
