    I think I got the very last bimetal 64 1/2" blade enco had a few weeks ago.

    I tried to order three and they only had one.

    I picked up some carbon blades in addition to the good one.

    Our local tool store has some bimetal blades but they are very expensive (compared to enco)

    I'd like to have a new cheap source for the bimetal if anyone knows.

    I guess 24 tpi would be the size for 1/8 inch material then huh. I guess that will be what I cut the most.

    Are you saying if I cut 1/4 I need 12 tpi or 1/2 I should use 6 tpi?

    Glad to know 64 1/2 in a normal size.
    hmmm, interesting. I haven't ordered a blade in a while as I ordered 3 the last time.

    I have the HF 4x6 bandsaw.

    Enco item #s

    240-4933
    Teeth per Inch: 14 Type: Bi-Metal Material: Bi-Metal

    240-4929
    Teeth per Inch: 10-14 Type: Bi-Metal Material: Bi-Metal

    I'm using the 10/14 Blade on 16g Tubing, 1/8" Angle & Flat stock, 3/16" tubing and plate.

    Remember you want to put Angle in the vise like this /\ for straight cuts.
    Flat stock should be Flat- not on end.

    I forgot about those as my HD never seems to have any so I just quit looking.

    I think they are Rigid brand and have received decent reviews.

    Are you saying if I cut 1/4 I need 12 tpi or 1/2 I should use 6 tpi?
    That would be for the min. 3 teeth on the material at all times. Of course with this there are times where only two teeth will be in contact.

    I like to go a bit finer in general. Like 12 tpi would be fine for 1/2", and 16 or even 24 is ok for 1/4".

    It depends on the material also, and blade/feed speeds are also a factor.

    Of course for some materials a lube is desirable. There are a lot of variables.

    I bought a machine similar to that years ago when I had to cut a bunch of pieces of 1" sq. CRS and all I had was a manual hacksaw.

    After working up a sweat on the first piece I said "The heck with this!" and bought a used (like new condition) saw for a really good price.

    The saw cut the material in no time at all (I think it took about 1/50th the time it took me manually) while I worked on something else.

    SWEEEET!!!

    One thing about my saw- it is an import, and the casting wasn't relieved enough to tension the blade fully so when in use the blade would slip off the wheel.
    The guy I bought it from thought he was ripping me off (that the saw was no good) so I got it for about 20% new price and it hadn't been used at all due to the problem.
    I got it home, ground a slight bit more relief with an angle grinder (2 min.) and the saw works perfectly!
