Blade Snapshot
RazorTip Carbide is a tough blade that stays sharper longer in the most difficult sawing conditions such as tropical hardwoods, kiln dried lumber, engineered wood, and more abrasive materials.

Understanding sawmill blade geometry and terminology can be complex. Here is a crash course in choosing a blade profile that is best suited for your sawing application.

Blade Thickness

  • Thicker blades (", ", ") provide faster feed rates and better cutting performance in difficult sawing conditions such as knotty, frozen, dry or extremely hard material, but requires higher horsepower (25+HP)
  • Thinner blades (", ", ") provide longer flex life with lower horsepower sawmills where production or speed is not a primary factor

Blade Width

  • Wider blades for higher horsepower (25+HP) sawmills and a faster feed rate
  • Narrow blades for lower horsepower sawmills and more difficult sawing

Hook Angle

  • 4 degree: frozen or extreme hardwoods on all sawmills
  • 7 degree: frozen, tropical, and extreme hardwoods on higher horsepower (25+HP), wide cut sawmills
  • 9 degree: seasoned, hardwoods for lower horsepower sawmills making narrow cuts on smaller logs
  • 10 degree: all purpose for a mix of hard and softwoods on all sawmills
  • 12 degree: medium to softwoods

Eliminate downtime and keep sawing with these 10 helpful tips to increase your bandsaw blade life expectancy.


Use Wood-Mizer's resharp® blade sharpening service or your own blade maintenance equipment to ensure your bandsaw blades maintain maximum precision and performance.


When installing a new sawmill blade, make a few cuts at a moderate speed to "break in" the blade. Also, minimize skim cuts when only one side of the set tooth is sawing.


Keep drive belts tight to transmit higher horsepower to the sawmill blade, especially with new belts that need tightened more frequently.


Trees vary in density, which requires different cutting techniques and feed rates. Wood density change as logs dry which makes sawing more difficult.


Lubricating the sawmill blade can lead to higher sawing performance, reduced pitch build up, longer life between blade sharpenings, and overall blade life.


Dirt, rocks, sand, and other foreign material that may be in the log will wear the teeth considerably faster. A debarker can help with this.


Periodically check hydraulic tensioners, air bags, and springs, because proper tension is critical for maximum blade performance and cutting speeds.


The blade wheel belts must be in good condition to reach peak performance because worn belts can lead to blade tracking problems. Swapping drive side and idle side can extend belt life.


Feed rates should be as fast as possible while still maintaining a straight cut because cutting at slower speeds reduces overall bandsaw blade life.


If the blade guides are tipped upward or downward, they will cause the blade to cut in the same direction. Keep rollers tight and make sure the blade is not continuously contacting the back guide or roller flange.

Which Type of Band Saw Blade Should I Use?

type1Written by Brittany Koenig
Assistant to the President at Detroit Band Saw Works

Whether you’ve been operating a band saw for years or you just bought a table top saw to tinker with in your garage, you may still be asking yourself, “What type of blade should I get?” The type of band saw blade you should purchase depends on the material you plan to cut.

There are 3 main types of band saw blades:
Bi-Metal, Carbon Steel, and Carbide.

Bi-Metal Saw Blades:
Bi-metal band saw blades cover the broadest range of sawing applications. 95% of companies and individuals cutting the following materials should use a bi-metal band saw blade: carbon steel, tool steel, structural steel, stainless steel, pipes/tubing, die steel, angles, flat stock and mixed metal applications.

Carbon Steel Saw Blades:
There are two different types of carbon steel blades&#; Carbon Flexback and Carbon Hardback. Both Carbon Flexback and Carbon Hardback will cut the following: mild steels, copper, wood, plastic, cast iron, cork, brass, lead, furniture, resawing projects, bronze, zinc, fiberglass, and non ferrous metals. The difference in the blades is right there in the names. In Carbon Hardback blades, both the teeth and the backer of the blade have been heat treated, providing stronger beam strength. Only the teeth are heat treated on Carbon Flexback blades to allow for a flexible backer suitable for contour cutting.

Carbide Saw Blades:
Carbide band saw blades are your solution to cut through materials bi-metal and carbon steel blades just won’t cut. Carbide band saw blades provide high wear resistance and toughness when cutting a variety of applications such as: case hardened steels, spring steels, high speed steels, nickel based alloys, case hardened steels, composite graphite, high nickel alloys, titanium, inconnel, and other exotic metals.

Hopefully, you found the above information helpful in determining which type of band saw blade to use for your application. If you still have some lingering questions, please feel free to contact Detroit Band Saw or call at We are available by phone 7a.m-4p.m. Eastern Time. You will be directly connected to one of our customer service representatives (no confusing prompts). Also, if you’re feeling a little hoarse, feel free to contact us by email.


EthAnswers What Size Bandsaw Blade to Use? Does Size Really Matter?

We may receive a commission when you use our affiliate links. However, this does not impact our recommendations.

In the world of woodworking band saw blades, you have regular-guy blades (the carbon steel blades used for everything under the sun), you can upgrade to a silicon steel blade , at about double the price , that has undergone induction heating (much like the teeth on a Japanese hand saw) or you have the opportunity to purchase carbide-tipped blades that usually cost four to five times more. The less-expensive blades do the job and last an OK length of time provided you don&#;t hit a rogue steel fragment buried in your timber. The carbide-tip blades last longer, cut faster and will polish off a few errant gun shot slugs without problems. What do you do?

If you are that regular guy, you stop by the local woodworking store or home center and shop price. Job done. But if you&#;re more like a band saw fanatic, chances are you&#;re going after a tipped blade and spending the extra cash.

We have another option. How about a carbide impregnated band saw blade. These blades ring up for only a few dollars more than the silicon steel blades do, and they last longer. But what is carbide impregnated? Well it&#;s not like a carbide toothed blade where the extra piece of carbide is brazed to each tooth (now you understand why carbide-tip band saw blades cost so much more). These photos clearly show the difference between the tipped blades and the impregnated blades. The first photo shows a tooth on a carbide tip band saw blade , you can clearly see the added piece of carbide that&#;s brazed in place. The second photo is the carbide impregnated blade.

We picked up a Premium Gold blade from Supercut Bandsaw Co., Inc. These blades are designed for vertical woodcutting band saws. The teeth are precision ground, not punched or milled like traditional band saw blades. During the manufacture of these blades, the teeth are impregnated with the carbide particles , a process the company discovered while developing the Woodsaver Thin-Kerf Carbide Resaw blades. In addition, the Premium Gold blades feature razor-sharp teeth that have an aggressive hook and set, rounded backs, and polished sides. Polishing the sides and rounding the back of band saw blades allows for quicker feeding rates and sharper turns without building excessive heat and chatter. (Chatter is vibration due to improper feed pressure that quickly ruins your blades.)

If you look closely at the teeth on the Premium Gold blade, you notice a bit of blackening at each tooth which would lead you to believe that these blades had been through induction heating. But when you get in close for a better look , I used a jeweler&#;s loupe , you see that small deposits on the teeth are the cause of the coloration. That&#;s the carbide impregnating. As I understand the process, the thicker the coating, the more roughness you&#;ll have at the end and the longer the life of the blade. To keep a smooth, clean and cool cut, the coating on the teeth on a band saw blade cannot be extremely thick , certainly not as thick as the pieces of carbide in tipped blades. When I get more information about Supercut&#;s industry-exclusive carbide impregnation process, I&#;ll update this post.

About this time you&#;re wondering about the cut of these blades, right?. Here&#;s my problem. When you decide it&#;s time to change your band saw blade, the blade coming off the saw is older and dull. A new blade, right from the packaging, is sharp and much, much better as it cuts. So does carbide impregnating make this blade cut better. That&#;s something that only time will tell. I can say that the cut is clean and relatively smooth, but it&#;s not the cut achieved when using a carbide tip blade.
