Which Blade Cuts What? – Jigsaw

Read Time: 1 Mins | March 30, 2022


Which blade cuts what?

Our most commonly asked question…

So, let’s answer the questions for you…

A little background first…

At Starrett we make 5 main saw blades, Holesaw, Jigsaw, Hacksaw, Reciprocating and Bandsaw.

Some of which have common elements and is mentioned in names and descriptions.

One such element is ‘Bi-Metal Unique’ saw technology used in our jigsaw and hacksaw blades.

Bi-Metal Unique is Starrett’s technology that uniquely bonds two strips of high speed steel to backing steel in a solid phase, basically sandwiching the backing steel between the highspeed steel strips, this produces a multichip performance of smoother, faster cuts, extremely strong teeth with 170% more weld area than other bi-metal blades and increases resistance in tooth breakage, meaning longer blade life and lower cost per cut.

Another common element is shank colouring, these are used in our Jigsaw and Reciprocating blade ranges making their use easily identifiable.
