When you purchase a Baileigh Industrial Band Saw, there are a lot of things to consider. The most important element of a great cut is the blade. When cutting materials other then mild steel other variables come into play. Below is a brief guide to help you pick out the corect blade.
Picking the right blade:
Cutting mild steel or annealed material you would want no less than 3 teeth touching the material or no more than 24. The ideal amount of teeth touching the material at one time would be 6-12. When picking the correct tooth count you also want to consider the wall thickness too aggressive of a tooth count will case the teeth to get catch in the side walls and you will break your teeth. Too fine of a tooth count will only cause a problem when you are cutting through the top or bottom of your material. This can cause premature blade wear or motor failure.
Conditions that will influence pitch selection:
- Soft materials require less teeth and more gullet capacity.
- Hard materials require more teeth to share in the work and less gullet.
- Machine capabilities. Constant feed machines can use a coarser pitch. Gravity feed machines will require a finer pitch.
Please remember that there are Proper Techniques for All Types of Shapes.
Please consult a Baileigh Industrial Technician for help in choosing the correct blade for you application.

Band Stalls in Work
- Feed pressure too great - decrease feed

- Adjust guides closer to work piece
- Teeth too fine - use a coarse pitch
- Decrease feed force
- Teeth dull
