Flow chart

Unfortunately it just isn’t as simple as one blade to suit all job, the flow chart below shows number of things you should consider, when buying the type of blade that you need.

When you look at a circular saw blade it may seem quite simple. Essentially they are just pieces of steel which spin round at fast speeds to cut through a number of different types of material. But when you look a bit closer they are complex tools. A blade is made up of three main parts The saw body, the TCT saw tips (and now the new PCD teeth) and the bore. We then go on to the more detailed parts of the saw blade, including braze alloy, gullet size and shape, shoulder size and shape, expansion slots and the grind of the tooth.

Questions to ask when buying a blade.

Generally the blade you need changes depending on the answers to three questions:

  1. What material are you cutting?
  2. What machine you are using?
  3. What finish are you trying to achieve?
