Q: How to choose a saw based on teeth per inch?
A: TPI is an acronym for Teeth Per Inch and is measured from gullet to gullet, not tooth tip to tooth tip.
In general, a saw with more teeth per inch cuts slower but leaves a cleaner finish; a saw with less teeth per inch cuts faster but leaves a rougher finish. Besides, the more teeth per inch a saw has, the harder materials the saw can cut through.
Q: Why choose a saw with triple ground teeth instead of a saw with double ground teeth?
A: Sawteeth are ground in three different angles so they are called triple ground teeth. A saw with triple ground teeth can provide smoother and more efficient cuts than a traditional saw with double ground teeth because it has sharper teeth and smoother gullets.
Q: What is impulse-hardening teeth?
A: Impulse hardening is the modern method of creating a saw blade with a long working life. The teeth are hardened by means of wave impulses with a very high peak power and a special high frequency. It means sawteeth will stay sharper for longer.
Q: How to buy a saw based on the thickness of the blade?
A: As a general rule, a thicker blade is firmer so higher precision and better cutting performance can be expected; a thinner blade features its flexibility so it's better to choose a thin blade if you want flush cuts or thinner cuts.
