Width: 16 or 20 - Carbon steel Band Saw Blades for Wood - Professional line
Rip-cut band saw blades = For cutting in the same direction as the wood grain (cut faster and more aggressively,but generally produce a slightly rougher finish, because the
spaces (gullets) in-between the teeth are deeper, and the chiseling action of the tooth is more aggressive.
Rip-cut and Crosscut Band Saw Blades
Crosscut band saw blades = The band saw blades with many teeth achieve their fine finish by cutting slowly. The cuts are slower and less aggressive, there is a greater likelihood that
the wood will be burned due to friction as the blade feeds through the workpiece.
