Wood Cutting Bandsaw Blades

Whether you’re a hobbyist or you work with wood for your job, you want to be sure you are getting the right wood cutting bandsaw blades. There are different types of ways wood is cut, and this means different blades for different kinds of jobs.

Bi-Metal Ripper Bandsaw Blades

When ripping wood – cutting through the wood to get to the other side, a Bi-Metal Ripper blade is our recommended choice and is a strong, long-lasting option. 

It is a specialist hard tooth blade which is made from high-performance M42 high-speed steel. It can be used with most portable sawmills and multi-head sawmilling machines. This blade leaves an improve quality and smooth finish.

Carbon Flex Back Blades

The carbon flex back range is the most cost-effective option when cutting curves and shapes out of wood. These blades have a reliable cutting performance with tougher teeth for accuracy. When cutting shapes and corners, a bandsaw machine requires a 3mm or 5mm width blade with a high TPI (teeth per inch) as it gives you greater flexibility with your cut for a smoother finish.

How Long Will Wood Cutting Bandsaw Blades Last?

Both the Bi-Metal Ripper Blade and the Carbon FlexBack Ripper Blade lifespan vary. It isn’t easy to put a time limit on how long they will last because it depends on how much you use them. For example, if you use them daily, they will probably last around a month. When used sparingly, they can last anywhere from a month up to 6 months.

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.
