Product Description

The Starrett Duratec PH carbon steel band saw blade has a skip tooth, raker set, and a neutral rake angle for cuts on aluminum and other nonferrous metals. The blade can make cuts in solid, structural, and tubular shapes, as well as solid and tubular bundles. The skip tooth (also called buttress tooth) has a 0-degree straight rake angle for general-purpose cutting, and the expanded gullets, or spaces between the teeth, allow the blade to cut softer materials without overloading the gullets with chips. It is made of a single piece of carbon steel with precisely hardened teeth and a spring-tempered back for increased cutting rates and accuracy. The blade has a raker set, which alternates between left-leaning, right-leaning, and unset teeth, for increased chip evacuation that reduces clogging.

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 choice of tooth rake, tooth set, pitch, and size of the blade. Band saw blades are available with a positive rake angle or a neutral (also called zero or straight) 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 width to fit the requirements of specific band saws.

The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company was founded in 1880 and is headquartered in Athol, MA.

I purchased a Rigid 14" Band-saw from Home Depot a few weeks back with the intentions of doing some re-sawing. What was I thinking? The the saw had so much drift and vibration it was dangerous. I didn't know if it was the blade or the POS saw. After reading a few mags I decided to try a new blade. Everything I read, steered me toward a stop tooth blade of 3 to 4 tpi. This blade solved all of my problems and there is hardly any drift and the cuts are smoother which surprised me since the TPI is coarser. I also purchase a 1/2" version but I may not need it. Good quality, great packaging!
