Wavy Set

Wavy Set blades have groups of teeth set to the left and to the right alternating throughout the band blade. Wavy set helps eliminate tooth strippage when sawing thin sections such as tubing, pipe, sheet stock, etc. These are recommended for most light duty sawing machines.

 

Tooth Pitches

Tooth pitch indicates the number of teeth per inch. Teeth per inch is determined by counting the number of gullets in an inch, measured from tooth point to tooth point. Tooth pitch (teeth per inch) is an extremely important consideration which is determined by cross section and hardness of material to be cut.
