This Starrett Duratec PH carbon steel band saw blade has a high-profile hook tooth, positive rake angle, hard back, and a raker tooth set for creating straight cuts on easy-to-machine low-alloy steels, nickel-based alloys, and other nonferrous alloys. The hook tooth has a 10-degree positive rake angle for fast, general-purpose cutting, and the high-profile design has deep gullets, or spaces between the teeth, allowing the blade to cut softer materials without overloading the gullets with chips. The blade can make cuts in solid, structural, and tubular shapes, as well as solid and tubular bundles. It is made of a single piece of carbon steel and has heat-treated teeth that can make cuts in materials up to 50 HRC (Rockwell hardness). The back of the blade has also been heat treated, providing increased rigidity for straighter cuts. The blade has a raker tooth set, which alternates between left-leaning, right-leaning, and unset teeth, for increased chip evacuation that reduces clogging. This band saw blade works for fast, general-purpose cutting.
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 tooth rake, tooth set, pitch, and size of the blade. Band saw blades are available with a positive rake angle or a straight (also called zero) 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.
