The layman may find the endless number of saw blades for jigsaws that meets the eye whilst walking around the hardware store astonishing – but on the other hand, craftsmen and passionate DIY enthusiasts rejoice at the enormous selection:  There is the appropriate saw blade for nearly every work piece; therefore, choosing the correct saw blade is almost its own separate science. So no: Not all saw blades are the same – read what the principle distinguishing features are characterised as…

Come along – we are making a short excursion into the secretive world of saw blades, showing you that it really does depend on the choice. Especially for hobby-related use, the features listed below are of the utmost relevance, as, on the one hand, the saw blade must fit in the machine, on the other, it must suit the exact material being used – and it must be suitable for either straight or curved cuts.

  • The first important distinguishing feature – tool mounts

A tool mount is the so-called shaft of the saw blade. The manufacturers have produced many different forms over the course of time, such as the single-tappet shaft, the universal shaft, the precision shaft or the double-tappet shaft. The bad news: If the shaft does not fit the machine, then it cannot be used either. The good news: The single-tappet shaft is among the most common tool mounts of all. And because both the pendulum stroke jigsaw by Trotec and the large majority of all pendulum stroke jigsaws available have a single-tappet mount, the quality saw blades from Trotec can be used with almost all jigsaws.

  • The second important distinguishing feature – the length of the blade

It should be observed here that a saw blade with a length of 75 mm cannot cut through materials with a thickness of 75 mm. Therefore, 25 mm has to be subtracted from the length as a general rule for wood. The difference is even bigger for metal-cutting saw blades. Therefore, the recommended cutting depth should be determined using the specification sheet.

  • The third important distinguishing feature – the width of the saw blade

Wide saw blades allow for a particularly good straight cut. Slender saw blades are, however, excellently suited for curved cuts. Extra thick saw blades are then used first and foremost when perpendicular cuts are required.

  • The fourth important distinguishing feature – how suitable is the material

Wood or metal – that is the question A quick look at the colour coding of the manufacturer provides the answer as to which saw blade is suitable for which material.

A jigsaw is only as good as the saw blade installed

Are you already familiar with our new jigsaw blade set for wood and metal in Trotec brand quality? Choosing one of these jigsaw blade sets is always the correct decision as you will receive 10 jigsaw blades manufactured to a high standard for wood or metal sawing work with each set.

The milled saw blades are made entirely of carbon steel, which is particularly suitable for sawing soft materials such as wood, wood fibre boards or plastic. The set includes multiples of three different types of saw blades, so you have the optimal wood saw blade available for any task – the set contains:

o   4 saw blades with milled and straight-set teeth, blade length 100 mm, blade thickness 1.2 mm. Uniform tooth distribution of 3.2 mm (tooth concentration 8 TPI). Optimally suited for straight, fast rough cuts in soft wood 4 to 50 mm thick.

o   4 saw blades with milled and corrugated teeth, blade length 92 mm, blade thickness 1 mm. Uniform tooth distribution of 2.1 mm (tooth concentration 12 TPI). Optimally suited for straight, fine cuts in soft wood 2 to 15 mm thick.

o   2 saw blades with milled and corrugated teeth, blade length 75 mm, blade thickness 1 mm. Uniform tooth distribution of 2.1 mm (tooth concentration 12 TPI). Optimally suited for fine curved cuts in soft wood 2 to 15 mm thick.

The milled saw blades are 92 mm long and made entirely of fully annealed super-speed steel, with which you can saw through harder materials quickly and precisely. This set includes four different types of saw blades in multiple duplicates – this way you always have the optimal metal saw blade available for medium to very thin sheets or for curved cuts. Eight saw blades with progressive tooth distribution are also provided, which ensures fast sawing progress and low-vibration sawing. The set contains:

o   3 saw blades with milled and corrugated teeth, blade length 92 mm, blade thickness 1 mm. A progressive tooth pitch of 1.8 to 2.5 mm (tooth concentration 10/14 TPI) is optimally suited for straight, precise cutting into medium sheets with a thickness of 2.5 to 6 mm.

o   3 saw blades with milled and corrugated teeth, blade length 92 mm, blade thickness 1 mm. Progressive tooth distribution of 1 to 1.5 mm (tooth concentration 17/24 TPI). Optimally suited for straight, fine cuts in thin sheets 1 to 3 mm thick.

o   2 saw blades with milled and corrugated teeth, blade length 92 mm, blade thickness 1 mm. Uniform tooth distribution of 0.8 mm (tooth concentration 32 TPI). Optimally suited for straight, fine cuts in very thin sheets 0.5 to 1.5 mm thick.

o   2 saw blades with milled and corrugated teeth, blade length 92 mm, blade thickness 1 mm. Progressive tooth distribution of 1 to 1.5 mm (tooth concentration 17/24 TPI). Optimally suited for curved cuts in thin sheets 1 to 3 mm thick.
