Product Description

The Starrett Intenss Pro-Die bimetal band saw blade has a regular tooth, raker set, and a neutral rake for cutting low alloy steel; aluminum; stainless steel; carbon steel; tool, die, and mold steel; steel up to C45 Rockwell hardness; nickel-based alloys; and nonferrous metal. The blade can make cuts in solid, structural, and tubular shapes. The Intenss tooth has a neutral rake angle for general-purpose cutting. The teeth are made of triple-tempered M-42 high-speed cobalt steel with an alloy steel backing strip that resists fatigue. It also has a variable tooth pitch that reduces noise levels and vibration. 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'm using this blade on a vintage craftsman professional horizontal metal cutting bandsaw, and I realize now should have gone this route a long time ago! The bandsaw was designed for a .020" wide blade. I previously tried the more common .025" wide blades, but never got it working quite right with them. The adjustments had to be on the verge of being maxed out to make it cut straight and not jump off the wheels. With this blade, it runs about in the middle of the adjustment ranges, blade stays on the wheels, and the blade cuts really nicely. The blade seems like good quality and sharp, although I have yet to really put it to the test cutting any stainless steel so far - first cutting project was aluminum. I did have to "flip" the blade inside out to make it run the right direction - wonder if any of the 1-star reviews didn't make sure the blade direction was correct before running theirs?

Bi- metal, defiantly not. First I tryed copper it worked some what but got very hot then I tryed a piece of 1/2 gas pipe dulled right out and got super hot. Defiantly does not live up to what it says it does. Junk

This was a expensive blade. But my older bandsaw uses a 80" blade so it isn't common. I changed the upper pulley to slow the cutting speed and this blade has held up great. Cuts aluminum with ease. Worth the price.

Always preferred the Starrett Bi-Metal blades over other name brands I've tried. These Pro-Die blades by Starrett work well for me both in performance and longevity, cutting aluminum and zinc alloy parts. Using 1/2 inch width, .035 thick, 14 teeth per inch.

Fit my HF 4x6 green band saw well. Replaced my previous bi-metal blade and boy can I tell it's sharp compared to the old one.

Got it prime so it was my best choice even though a buck or two more than the best price on the web...

So far so good.
