STEP BY STEP GUIDE
1. What type of bandsaw machine are you using?
Firstly, ask you need to ascertain what the bandsaw blade dimensions are for the bandsaw you are using. Most bandsaws have this information to hand either on the serial plate on the saw or listed in their manual. However, page here is a handy diagram of what key information you will need.
2. What material are you using?
3. Determine the product
4. What TPI (Tooth per inch) do I need?
TPI is the number of teeth per inch the defines the pitch of the bandsaw blade. This can vary between 1 and 24.
Sawing thin walled work pieces like tubes, pipes and sheet
These types of materials require fine teeth to reduce the risk of tooth damage or breakage
Sawing large cross sections
These types of materials require a coarse pitch bandsaw blade ie. Fewer teeth per inch. The fewer teeth on the blade in the workpiece the higher the cutting capacity. Why? This is because the feed pressure is districted over a lower number of teeth when penetrating the workpiece. A coarse pitch (fewer teeth per inch) increases productivity and provides a large chip space.
Sawing Soft materials, such as aluminium or bronze
A coarse pitch is require to prevent chip build up and packing in the gullets, which can impair sawing and together damage the blade
