A bit like tyres, coldsaw blades are pretty much black and round, right? Well, yes and no.
This is a complicated issue with diverse factors affecting the output quality, but understanding the basic commercial influences at play may help you avoid the worst effects of poor raw material, or at least give you a better idea of why you’re having to cope with them.
The term "coldsaw blade" is often applied to more than one type of circular saw blade. This article refers to coldsaw blades as those which are entirely manufactured from a single piece of solid high speed steel (not carbide tipped) which are used for metal cutting on purpose-built slow revolving machinery.
There are a number of reasons for cracking and breakage in metal cutting bimetal bandsaw blades, so in this article we’ll detail the main ones we come across.
Basic twist drill bits have been around forever, and there’s not much to say about them that hasn’t already been said. But that doesn’t mean it’s understood. Different workpiece materials will place different demands on the drill bit so, just like all tooling, a better understanding of their design will help yield better, more cost-effective results.
There are lots of reasons a metal cutting bandsaw blade can lose teeth, but for this article we’ll detail the main ones which we find cover perhaps 90% of the situations we come across in the field.
