Best Band Saw Blade

If you care cutting more than oranges, you may be looking for the “best band saw blade”. In my opinion and in the opinion of many of my colleagues, using the Best Band Saw Blades in a “lesser” band saw machine can make a much more significant impact on my cutting than using cheaper blades on an expensive machine. Of course using the best blade with the best machine is most likely the best option, but that is not always practical for our cutting applications.

Why the Best Bandsaw Blades?

It does seem like the “best” is usually the most expensive and in this case, I am going to recommend the carbide-tipped band saw blades which happen to be a much higher price. Carbide tipped blades usually go for about $200 so I have to think whether the advantages are worth the cost.

  • They can last up to 20 times longer than a typical carbon steel band saw blade.
  • Carbide tipped blades cut much faster.
  • Carbide tipped blades have a much cleaner cut giving that beautiful finish.

If you do a lot of fine cutting or cutting of abrasive materials I would recommend the Starrett carbide tipped band saw blades. If you are not cutting a lot and can afford the downtime of broken blades, then the Best Band Saw Blades may not be worth it.

    Thank you for sharing these tips. I will take note of this and I will share these inputs to my husband. Choosing the right band saw blades for cutting wood is more important than buying the best saw that might not be the right saw for the type of wood you have.

    Choosing best saw blade is very important as it is greatly responsible for its performance.
