 114" (2896mm) Bandsaw Blade 5/8" wide, 3 Teeth per inch (Tpi)

DAKIN FLATHERS Indusrial Spec, High Carbon, Market Leading. UK Manufactured Bandsaw Blade.

This high quality blade with 3 teeth per inch is ideally suited for cutting material from 60mm up to 100mm, straight or curved. All other variations are available.

Our blades are manufactured using Dakin Flathers precision high carbon content steel strip.

Their unique carbide technology hardening process gives a stronger, straighter steel strip that when used in a bandsaw blades will tolerate higher feed pressures. A blade of this quality will last up to four times longer than standard HSS blades.


When choosing your new bandsaw blades, here are some key points to consider;

  • It is a common misconception that there such thing as a general purpose bandsaw blade

    but unfortunately this is not the case

 

  • To achieve the best results possible, it is important to match the blade to the workpiece being machined

     

  • Using a high quality blade will transform your machine (We only use UK manufactured Dakin Flathers bands and coils)

 

  • The correct bandsaw depends on a few key elements;

    1-Width Of Blade

    2- Length Of Blade

    3- Teeth Per Inch (TPI)

    4- Tooth Configuration

 

1- When looking at the width of the blade, the following general rules apply;

- The thinner the blade, the tighter the curve/radius you can machine

- The wider the blade, the more straight line cut can be achieved

- All blades are wider at the tooth edge than at the back, to allow for clearance

 

2- The Length of the blade is determined by the machine model the bands are to fit on.

 

3- The teeth per inch (TPI) is critical to the thickness of the workpiece being machined

- The most optimum to give, - efficient cutting

- minimum feed pressure

- adequate gullet area for chip removal

- stable cutting

- material security

is 5 teeth per workpiece thickness.

This will give one tooth entering the workpiece, one exiting and three stable within

the workpiece, please note this is not always possible to achieve, but should be aimed

for)

- Too many teeth gives less area within the gullet for the chips to free themselves from

the timber, resulting in cutting pressures that cause binding, black cut edges and blade

breakages

 

- A great guide to choosing the correct TPI for your blade is;

 

10tpi- up to 20mm of material

8tpi - up to 30mm of material

6tpi - up to 40mm of material

4tpi - up to 60mm of material

3tpi - up to 100mm of material

 

- There are some blades available that have a vary-tooth set up, which allows for

variants in the timber thickness, please speak to our technical team regarding these.

 

4- The most widely used tooth formations and their uses are as follows;-

 

- Regular tooth- A conventional tooth used for cross-cutting, contour sawing,

sawing thin materials where a fine finish is required

 

- Skip Tooth – These are more widely spaced teeth which have a 0° rake angle

to help prevent clogging when cutting larger sections

 

- Hook Tooth- These have a 90° positive rake angle, a deeper gullet and larger

tooth which helps to feed into material giving a faster cutting rate

 

- Variable Pitch – These have altering sets of different sized teeth to provide a

smooth finish cut in varying sized timber

 

 

If you are struggling to choose or find the correct blade within the vast amount available

then please do not hesitate to contact our in house, time served machinists to discuss any

of the elements in choosing the correct blade for you.
