We have many combinations of blade widths and pitch from the smooth cutting raker tooth to the efficient skip tooth and the aggressive hook tooth styles. Top quality saw steel manufactured to precise tolerances and guaranteed welds result in very smooth cutting blades. Blades are sized to fit Grizzly bandsaws as well as many other brands. Just match up the length in the charts with the recommended length for your bandsaw. If you need more information to help match blade cutting characteristics with your particular applications, just call our friendly service technicians.

Blade Selection: Selecting the right blade for the cutting task requires knowledge about blade characteristics and cutting priorities (i.e. speed, finish, etc.).

  • Blade Length: Measured by the blade circumference, blade lengths are specific to each bandsaw. They are determined by the wheel diameter and distance between the wheels.
  • Blade Width: Measured from the back of the blade to the tip of the blade tooth (the widest point). Blade width determines the largest and smallest curve that can be cut, and contributes to the accuracy of cutting straight—generally the wider the blade, the straighter it will cut.

Tooth Set: Two common tooth sets for wood bandsaw blades are alternate and raker. Each type of tooth set removes material in a different manner, leaving cuts with different characteristics.

  • Alternate: An all-purpose arrangement where the teeth are bent evenly left and right of the blade.
  • Raker: Three teeth in a recurring group—one bent left, one bent right, and one that is not bent. The raker set is ideal for most contour cuts.

Tooth Type: The most common tooth types for wood blades are:

  • Standard (or Raker): Equally spaced teeth set at a “0” rake angle. Recommended for thinner workpieces and general use.
  • Hook (or Claw): Wide gullets (round or flat), equally spaced teeth, positive rake angle, and fast cut with good surface finish.
  • Skip (or Skip Tooth): Wide, flat gullets, a "0" rake angle, equally spaced teeth, and recommended for thick wood cutting.

I owned one before loose all my studio and shop in a divorce. I am now starting over on a limited budget, because I am now retired. I lost all my grizzly tools, 14"band-saw with extender, one floor model dust collector, a flex shaft grinder. I just purchased a flex shaft grinder, and love it! It will take me some time but i will purchase a 14" band saw and thickness planer again. When I was and artist full time and displaying at shows and seminars a cross the country. You people at Grizzly helped me so much that I had a Grizzly pewter and bronze sign on the front of my show bench. Like i said, it may take a few years before I can purchase those items again. I have built a new dust collector bench for shows and seminars again. If you would like to see my work, go to google and type in ( wildlife art gallery eureka springs ). Do you still have any of those beautiful pewter and bronze bear plaque, i would love to have one for my current power bench to advertise Grizzly products again, I have always loved Grizzly wood working tools. Again as soon as I can, I plan on purchasing a band-saw and thickness planer in a few years or longer, again thank you for your tools, I love them and always have for more than 15 years!
Sincerely;
Bill Klindworth
Owner, artist Bill Studio
