Steps

Purchasing a blade online can seem like an arduous task, but we're hoping to make it simple for you. Follow these steps below and you'll be ordering blades like a champ in no time!

Step
Type of Blade 

This will be based on the type of material are you cutting and are split into two main categories: Bi-Metal blades for cutting metals, and Carbon blades for wood cutting. 


The two categories are further expanded on based on the specific application and material being cut. Click on a section below to see the different types available.  

M42 - Standard bi-metal blade. Great for general purpose cutting.

 

M51 - The next step up from a M42. A specially designed tooth edge best suited for heavy duty applications.

 

PT - An M42 blade with a modified tooth edge. Excels at cutting tubing, sections, and bundles.

 

Carbide Tipped - Your premium band saw blade. Each individual tooth is made from a carbide resulting in a blade that excels at hard to cut and high alloy materials.

Step
Blade Width

This is how wide your blade is from the back edge of the blade to the tips of the teeth. Wayco offers blades as small as 1/4" up to 3-1/8".

Step
Blade Length

This is the total length of your blade, and the length can normally be found somewhere on your machine or in the manual. A quick and easy way to determine blade length is to take some string, choose a starting point on a blade, and warp the string around the blade. Measuring the string should give you your total blade length.

Step
Tooth Pitch 

Tooth pitch is the amount of teeth per one inch of blade. Your tooth pitch will mainly be determined by the size of the material you're cutting. A good rule of thumb is to have no less than 6 and no more than 18 teeth in your material at any given time. Please view this chart provided by M.K. Morse to help determine your optimal tooth pitch.
