Metallurgy and Bandsaw Blades

The study of metallurgy and its impact on bandsaw blades is invaluable knowledge for any machine or woodworking shop employee and key to proper application in any cutting process. To better understand the need-of-use for the different types of saw blades and their effect on different types of materials, a better understanding of the terminology and application becomes more clear. Metallurgy is the study of physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys. Another way of describing it is the way in which science is applied to the production of metals and the engineering of metal …

Bandsaw Blade Tooth Design

The machining industry uses four different types of bandsaw blade and each bandsaw blade tooth design is unique. Each set is made to correspond with a specific cut and material. The most commonly used tooth styles are the regular (or standard) tooth design and the variable (skip) tooth design. Each has its own specific purpose, with the definitions and usage being described as follows: Standard or Regular Tooth -Rake angle of Zero ° -For cutoff and contour cutting, or general purpose use Variable (Skip) Tooth Style -Same as Standard Tooth Style but with less teeth (every other tooth being removed) -Increased gullet capacity -Good …
