The performance and longer life of Olson All Pro band saw blades more than make up for the extra cost.
The Super Hard Edge (Rc 64-66) is achieved by a greater concentration of pin-point carbide, molybdenum, silicon, and chrome in the material.
This carbide structure allows the teeth to obtain a higher Rockwell hardness, increasing edge retention and durability.
The Tempered Back (Rc 40-50) provides more accurate cuts, less twist, and less back deformation. Teeth are precision milled (not stamped), and set for optimum performance.
Will cut wood, plastic, mild steel, and non-ferrous metals.
Blades are 93-1/2" long x 5/8" wide x 3 TPI (teeth per inch) x .025" thick with a Hook Tooth Pattern.
A 5/8" blade cuts a much thinner kerf (.045") than a typical 5/8" or 3/4" blade. It is highly recommended for re-sawing due to its superior tracking and handling ability. USA
