High-performance Carbon Steel Band-saw Blades for Cutting Metal
As we may all know the common use of the band saw is is cutting irregular shapes, and also re-sawing or ripping lumber into thinner slabs.
A band saw can likewise make the smoothest cuts and, with the proper blade, can be used to cut materials other than wood, including metal. For the purposes of this blog, we would like to look at the band-saw blades for basic workshop metal cutting operations.
Band-saw blades are reliable due to the hardened tooth tips and a particularly flexible band body. Carbon steel band-saw blades are suitable for cutting steel from simple work-shop operations to the sawing of compound materials on metal cutting band-saw machines. They achieve straighter cuts in wood and metal cutting when using hard edge hardback carbon steel blades.
Carbon steel Standard band saw blades are designed for DIY, smaller workshops and less demanding applications. It is suitable for cutting steel and non-ferrous metals both single and bundle cutting.
