Tooth Styles

Standard Tooth Styles

 

Regular Tooth

Regular Tooth Blades are the most commonly used for all general purpose metal sawing. The face of the tooth is straight,  (0 degree rake angle).

 

Hook Tooth

Hook Tooth Blades are ideal for sawing large sections of steel, wood and plastics. Hook teeth are usually designed with a 10 degree positive rake which gives a cutting action of digging out chips instead of scraping. The rounded gullets permit chips to clear with ease.

 

Skip Tooth

Skip Tooth Blades have widely spaced teeth with a large gullet capacity. This tooth design prevents clogging when cutting soft, sticky materials such as Aluminum and Magnesium.
