The Lenox Classic Pro bimetal band saw blade has a vari-tooth design, a positive rake angle, and a variable pitch and raker set for smooth, straight high-production cuts on carbon steel, alloy steel, mold steel, stainless steel, structural steel, tool steel, and aluminum and other nonferrous metals. The vari-tooth design has a unique geometry that offers higher production than the Classic style. It also has a positive rake angle to increase tooth penetration on saws that have limited feeds. The teeth are made of M-42 high-speed steel for heat and wear resistance, with a steel backing for fatigue resistance. The blade can make cuts in solid, tubular, and structural shapes. This band saw blade has an optimized variable pitch and raker set to reduce noise levels and vibrations, and to remove chips efficiently.
Band saw blades are long, continuous bands of metal that loop around the wheels of band saws and can make straight or curved cuts in metal, wood, stone, plastic, and other materials. When purchasing band saw blades, consider the application, as this will affect the tooth rake, tooth set, pitch, and size of the blade. Band saw blades are available with a positive rake angle or a straight (also called zero) rake angle, and with a raker, wavy, or alternate tooth set. Pitch (the number of teeth per inch or per 25.4 mm) affects the type of finish and may be constant or variable. Band saw blades are available in different lengths and widths to fit the requirements of specific band saws.
