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
