The L.S. Starrett Company has been involved
in precision tool manufacturing since 1880,
sold products worldwide since the 1890s and
introduced its first saw blade in about 1904.
Headquartered in Athol, MA since its
founding, Starrett has a tradition and
reputation so rich and solid that the words
“quality” and “Starrett” have become
synonymous.

BLADE
LENGTH
The blade length varies according to the band saw machine
type and specifications. Please find the correct blade length
on your band saw machine user manual.
PITCH
Pitch is the number of teeth per inch or 25mm. Cutting
thinner sections requires a finer pitch (more teeth per
inch/25mm). Thick sections require coarser pitches
(fewer teeth per inch/25mm).
The charts are good guidelines. Because the cross section
limits in the chart are broad and overlap, choose a coarser
pitch if the speed of cut is most important. Choose a finer
pitch if finish is most important.

Patent-pending design developed and tested by
Starrett, Versatix™ MP band saw blades set new
standards in cutting structural steels, sections, tubes
and small solids.
The new tooth design ensures that the blades
can easily cope with the shock loading conditions
associated with intermittent cutting and uncontrolled
feed rates.
Features:
cNew
tooth design resulting in a significant increase
in tooth strength and consequent reduction in tooth
strippage.
cTriple
tempered M-42 cobalt high speed steel
teeth combined with a fatigue resistant alloy steel
backing strip.
Benefits:
cFor
use on manual, semi-automatic, and automatic
machines.
cIdeal
for manual “pull down” band saw machines
where uncontrolled feed rates can easily overload
the teeth with a standard blade.
Applications:
cSections.
cStructurals.
cTubes and small
solids.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Consult our technical dept. for appropriate Advanz™ carbide style
1) When cutting materials of various hardness other than normal listing on speed chart, multiply speed or
cutting rate given on chart by these factors to arrive at speeds and cutting rates for hardened material.

2) Cutting normal or annealed materials requires at least 3 teeth to be in contact with the work, with the
optimum being 6-12 teeth, and 24 teeth being too many.
3) When using Duratec™ PH or Duratec™ FB, reduce speed by 50% and cutting rate by 85%.
4) When cutting dry, reduce band speed 40-50%, and cutting rate 40-50%.
Blade life will also be shorter by approximately 40-50%.
5) To choose correct Versatix™ MP for cutting tubing, pipe and structurals, first find the total square
inches and divide by the distance the saw blade must travel to finish cut. This figure can be used as
material width to determine Teeth Per Inch (Pitch).
6) To find estimated cutting rate for pipe, tubing and structurals, multiply factor for minimum wall thickness
of section to be cut by the cutting rate shown for the same size solid material.
7) For foundry applications (aluminum, non-ferrous) use Advanz™ FS carbide tipped at 1000-5000FPM
8) For case hardened & hardened steels, use Advanz™ CS. (+)

INSTRUCTIONS: Set ARROW on slide at material to be cut. Check ARROW in lower right corner for correct
blade type. For Intenss™ PRO-VTH increase scale speed/feed by 15%. For Advanz™ carbide tipped,
increase scale speed/feed by 25%-30%.
Use Versatix™ MP for structurals, pipe, tube, channel and small diameters. Instructions on reverse side.
CUTTING STRUCTURALS SPEEDS: 250-325 wet; 200-250 dry
NOTE: Break in blade at about 1/2 normal cutting rate for the first 50-100 square inches on easy to cut
material. Tough work hardening material, break in at about 3/4 normal cutting rate for the first 25 square
inches, gradually increasing feed to reach maximum cutting rate after 50 square inches. Always remove
a chip and maintain recommended band speed. (Avoid vibration.)

FLASH WELDERS
Save money while adding convenience.
Now you can do your own top quality
welds on your band saw blades,
the way you want it and when you want
it, while making your sawing operation
more profitable.
Starrett Flash Welders are first-rate
performers - workhorses that will help
you in many ways:
cEliminate
costly, time-consuming
outsourcing of welds.
cEliminate
the need for excessive
inventories of custom length blades you simply stock coils at the lower cost.
cGet
the blade you need right away.
cSW
Series Welders include a built-in
water cooled system, necessary on
welders with anneal control.
cThese
welders use a lower voltage
for a longer period of time than
manual annealing, causing more heat
to conduct in the jaws and carriages.
51
BLADE BREAK-IN
Using the right break-in procedures for a bimetal blade assures longer blade life, faster
cuts for a longer period of time and consistent
performance. Conversely, blade life can be
significantly compromised if the proper break-in
procedures are not followed.
LONGER BLADE LIFE
NEW BLADE WITH
RAZOR SHARP TEETH
TOOTH CORRECTLY
BROKEN IN
The teeth on a new band saw blade are razor
sharp. To withstand the cutting pressures of band
sawing, the tip of each tooth should be honed to
create an extremely small radius on its tip.
Easy-to-cut material such as carbon steel and
aluminum:
A.Run the normal surface feet per minute (SFPM).
B.Adjust the feed pressure to about one-half the
normal cutting rate for the first few cuts or for
50-100 square inches (323-645 sq.cm).
C.Increase to the normal cutting rate.
D.Avoid vibration.
Hard-to-cut materials such as nickel-based
alloys like inconel, hardened steels,tool steels
and stainless steels:
A.Run the normal surface feet per minute (SFPM).
B.Adjust the feed pressure to about threequarters of the normal cutting rate for the first
few cuts or for 25-75 square inches (161-484
sq.cm).
C.Then increase the cutting rate part way to
normal for the next few cuts.
D.Then increase to the normal cutting rate.
E.Avoid vibration.
