Supercut H2457 - 101" x 1/4" x .025" x 4 TPI Hook Bandsaw Blade
H2457 101" x 1/4" x .025" x 4 TPI Hook Bandsaw Blade
An economical 101" carbon steel hook blade for ripping boards to size.
Hooked blades are most common for long cuts in thicker workpieces. The hooked tooth geometry is aggressive with the hook angled down towards the surface of the workpiece. This helps increase the feed rate through the material, but leaves tearout on the bottom of the workpiece.
Width is an important factor when considering a new blade. The typical range is as small as 1/8" wide to 3/4" wide. This 1/4" wide blade is good for contour sawing with a minimum radius of 5/8". For resaw cutting, you will want to fit the widest blade available for your machine.
Typically, there are more teeth per inch for narrower blades compared to wider blades. We sell hook blades in 3, 4, and 6 TPI versions. This means the 4 TPI cut slower than 3 TPI and faster than 6 TPI blades.
The flex back blade helps with absorbing the stresses of cutting curves. It is heat-treated at the teeth, leaving the back with more flexibility for movement through the material.
The 101" length blade fits some 14" bandsaws. Choosing the correct blade for your 14" bandsaw can seem like a helpless task. Using the incorrect blade can dramatically affect your bandsaw’s operation. Consult the manual of your bandsaw to confirm if the H2457 101" x 1/4" x .025" x 4 TPI Hook Bandsaw Blade makes sense for your needs.
