What are Wood Bandsaw Blades

Cutting wood may seem like a simple enough task for most people. After all, most of us have probably done it at some point even during high school. But to cut wood to particular specifications, requires certain equipment.

In particular, bandsaw blades designed to cut wood are essential, especially if you’re looking for more precise cuts. SawBlade is here to guide you towards the best decisions when it comes to how you’re going to cut wood.

Considerations When Cutting Wood

When it comes to cutting wood, one of the most important decisions to make is the teeth pattern on the blades. That is, the shape of the teeth. The three most common shapes are regular, hook and skip.

Regular teeth are evenly spaced and have deep gullets. They are commonly used for general purpose cutting such as cutoffs in thin materials.

Hook teeth are larger and widely spaced with deep gullets. They are useful for faster and more coarse cuts.

Skip teeth are widely spaced with shallow gullets. Due to the sharp angle, these blades are useful when clogging may be a problem as chips fall off the teeth more easily.

2 Types of Wood Bandsaw Blades

Depending on the situation, there are several types of bandsaw blade one can use in order to cut wood. However, two of the most common blades are the carbon flexback blade and carbon thin gauge blade. Both are perfect for general purpose and precise cuts.

Carbon flexback blades are forged with carbon-rich steel and specially welded to produce a strong yet flexible piece of cutting equipment. This versatility makes them perfect for high speed cuts as well as applications such as contour cutting.

Carbon thin gauge blades are manufactured using high-quality carbon to fit smaller machines. This makes them useful for cases where the material produces smaller amounts of chip. Their smaller size also means they’re less susceptible to premature breakage, hence making them a great blade to use when making precise cuts.

So then, we hope you’ve gotten a better idea of how to choose the right blade when cutting wood. Now make sure to visit Our Store and see how we can help you get a better cutting experience.

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.
