The Starrett Intenss Pro-Die bimetal band saw blade has an Intenss tooth design, raker set, and a positive 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 positive rake angle for high-production cutting operations. 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.

The rate of metal removal and speed of cut as well as better control is amazing.
What was measured to be vertical was vertical 90 degrees.
I was so impressed, I bought two more of them
On a side note make sure you read the product description carefully. I was looking for a 89.5in blade and this is a 89" length, 1/2" width and in my haste I purchased this one. Luckily i was able to fit the 89 inch blade on my saw.
Tried cutting stainless steel 304 very slowly with plenty of coolant and it was unable to complete the cut. Tried to cut 1x3 6061 bar afterwards and was unable to cut that as well now. Dropping the rating down to 3.
-to cut hard metals like steel, I will need to slow down my Harbor Fright saw.
-Perhaps some experience breakage - be prepared to return it.
-Use lubricant esp. on steel - beeswax less messy than oil
-it is obvious that the blade is very good, if used within sensible parameters, like SFM.
More later, esp. modification activity.

Purchased this for my HF 4x6 and the blade showed up quickly. However, I have found that a good number of teeth have broken off with less than two hours of total cutting time. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Mike L.
