The M71 Bandsaw Blade

The M71 bandsaw blade is a bi-metal saw blade that is primarily engineered to cut materials that the M-42 bi-metal blade cannot. Due to its unique tooth geometry and ground 8% Cobalt, the M71 bandsaw blade is suitable for cutting Monel, D2 Steels, Stainless Steels, and other exotic alloys. At high speeds, the steel tooth tips are ideal for use with alloys that are prone to work hardening. Work hardening is a common issue with hard steels, but the M71 bandsaw blade can handle the job. It is an extremely tough blade welded specifically for heat and wear resistance. Because of its large gullet capacity …

The term might not be familiar to some but this is actually a common problem that can crop up during the cutting process. Some common causes of bandsaw blade twist include the saw blade binding in the cut. This occurs when the amount of feed force applied exceeds the required rate. Reduce the feed rate or follow the saw blade manufacturer’s recommended feed rates The wrong blade width is used on radius cuts. Use a narrower blade or refer to the bandsaw’s owner’s manual for recommended blade …
