Less prone to chipping when used for interrupted cuts and less expensive than carbide, tools made from M42 molybdenum-series high–speed steel alloy with 8% cobalt shorten cycle times by facilitating higher cutting speeds. Featuring a powdered metal M42 edge for harder teeth, the 3851 Sandflex Cobra bandsaw blade from Bahco (Kenosha, WI) provides smooth, precise cuts for general-purpose and production-cutting applications.
New variable-teeth geometry with 8-degree-to-10-degree rake angle is mathematically formulated to improve cutting performance by lowering friction and vibration. Engineered for contour cutting of materials including aluminum and stainless steel, the blade is available in sizes ranging from ¼ in to 3-1/8 in.
