Supercut T33246 - 180" x 1" x .035" x 3-4 TPI VP Bandsaw Blade
T33246 180" x 1" x .035" x 3-4 TPI VP Bandsaw Blade
A 180" 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.
These steel blades have carbide teeth which will cut faster and stay sharp the longest of all the blades available. The razor-sharp teeth have been precision-ground and the carbide tips are brazed into the pockets. The carbide tip is stronger and can resist more heat than non-carbide blades.
Typically, there are more teeth per inch for narrower blades compared to wider blades. This means the 3-4 TPI blade cuts faster than blades with 10-14 TPI.
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 180" length blade fits the Grizzly G0504, Grizzly G0568, Grizzly G0569, South Bend SB1123, and the Powermatic 24" 2415.
Choosing the correct blade 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 T33246 180" x 1" x .035" x 3-4 TPI VP Bandsaw Blade should make total sense for your needs.
