Getting Long Life from a New Band Saw Blade

What is Blade Break-In?

A new band saw blade has razor sharp tooth tips as
a result of the forming of the teeth. In order to with-
stand the cutting pressures used in band sawing,
the tooth tip should be honed to form a micro-fine
radius. Cutting with high pressure without perform-
ing this honing will cause microscopic damage to
the tips of the teeth, resulting in loss of blade life.

Why Break-In a Band Saw Blade?

Completing a proper break-in on a new band saw
blade will dramatically increase its blade life.

How To Break In a Blade

1. Use the appropriate band speed for the material
to be cut.

2. Reduce the feed rate/force control on the saw to
achieve a cutting rate approximately 20% to 50% of
the normal cutting rate. Mild steels require a larger
reduction in cutting rate than more difficult to
machine materials.

3. Begin the first cut at the reduced rate (A), mak-
ing sure that the teeth are forming a chip. Once the
blade fully enters the workpiece, the feed rate can
be slightly increased (B).

4. Make gradual increases in feed rate/force over
several cuts until the normal cutting rate is estab-
lished (cutting a total of 60 to 118 inches2 / 150 to 300
cm2) (C).

Note: During break-in, slight adjustments to band
speed may be made in the event of excessive noise
or vibration. Once the blade is broken in, the recom-
mended band speed should be used.
