Bi-Metal is made from "high-alloy" two-piece steel with a wire-welded, hardened tooth tip. Generally used for primary breakdown sawing in portable or industrial sawmill operations, Bi-Metal blades hold a sharpened edge up to three times longer than carbon blades.

  • Bi-Metal is made from "high-alloy" two-piece steel with a wire-welded, hardened tooth tip. Generally used for primary breakdown sawing in portable or industrial sawmill operations, Bi-Metal blades hold a sharpened edge up to three times longer than carbon blades

    Bi-Metal offers a longer sawing sharp life than most carbon and high-alloy blades and is engineered for production sawing environments.

    • How to Select a Blade Type

      Understanding sawmill blade geometry and terminology can be complex. Here is a crash course in choosing a blade profile that is best suited for your sawing application.
       

      Blade Thickness

      • Thicker blades (.045", .050", .055") provide faster feed rates and better cutting performance in difficult sawing conditions such as knotty, frozen, dry or extremely hard material, but requires higher horsepower (25+HP)
      • Thinner blades (.035", .038", .042") provide longer flex life with lower horsepower sawmills where production or speed is not a primary factor

      Blade Width

      • Wider blades for higher horsepower (25+HP) sawmills and a faster feed rate
      • Narrow blades for lower horsepower sawmills and more difficult sawing

      Hook Angle

      • 7 degree: frozen, tropical, and extreme hardwoods
      • 10 degree: all purpose for a mix of hard and softwoods on all sawmills
      • Turbo 7: extreme hardwoods for sawing white oak, hickory, ash, hard maple and more
