Analyze the sawing
For most situations, knowing the blade dimensions (length
x width x thickness) is all that is necessary.
Material: Find out the following
characteristics of the material to be cut:
Is the material to be stacked (bundled) or
cut one at a time?
The specifics of the application should be considered.
• Production or utility/general purpose sawing operation?
• What is more important, fast cutting or tool life?
the proper number of teeth per inch (TPI)
Use the Tooth Selection Chart on the right
general rule for bundles: Determine the correct
TPI for one piece and choose one pitch coarser for the bundle.
Determine which blade type
Refer to the Product Selection Charts on
the opposite page. Find the material type to be cut
in the top row. Read down the chart to find which
blade is recommended. For further assistance, contact
