T20227 131-1/2" x 1" x .035" x 8-12 TPI VP Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blade
A 131-1/2" variable pitch bi-metal blade for cleaner cuts.
Variable pitch bandsaw blades are a little different than traditional pitch blades. The teeth per inch (TPI) are not uniform, but switch within a group of teeth. The section with less TPI has larger gullets for clearing out debris followed by a section of greater TPI for cleaning up the cut.
In addition, this style of blade drastically reduces harmonic vibration which will make less noise and a better overall cut. A variable-tooth set will also help to reduce possible tooth stripping that occurs when cutting hard materials. Above all, it offers high heat, wear, and shock resistance.
Typically, there are more teeth per inch for narrower blades compared to wider blades. We sell these variable pitch blades from 3-4 to 10-14 TPI versions. This means the 8-12 TPI blade cuts slower than the 3-4 TPI blade and faster the 10-14 TPI blade.
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" wide blade is good for contour sawing with a minimum radius of 7".
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 131-1/2" length blade fits the G0640X 17" bandsaw. Choosing the correct blade for your 17" bandsaw can seem like a helpless task. Using the incorrect blade can dramatically affect your bandsaw’s operation. With this explanation, the factors you would select the T20227 131-1/2" x 1" x .035" x 8-12 TPI VP Bi-Metal Bandsaw Blade should make total sense for your needs.
