Optimally then, there should be six to twelve teeth in any one cutting operation for best output performance. Softer materials require fewer teeth in the cut, but more gullet capacity. The harder materials being worked with will require more teeth in a cut, sharing the machine-ability load but with less gullet area. Constant-feed band saw machines can use a coarser pitch blade while gravity-feed machines can use a finer pitch blade. Too many teeth in the cut will work to …
