The full tooth has three cutting edges. It has the top or leading edge and the two sides. The tooth load is created by all edges that cut wood. The tooth width on these type blades are usually twice the width of the body. For instance if the body is.042 then the tooth is usually created to be at least.084. So each tooth is cutting a kerf (path) through the log at least.084. The sides of the tooth are also cutting and adding tooth load. All of the cutting load is distributed into the gullet and most of the stress is at the narrowest place of the band which is the deepest part of the gullet. The body is pulling the tooth through the cut and the tooth is under load and is pried backward in micro amounts and the steel molecules at the narrowest part of the gullet are being stretched and being put under great stress. The bandsaw steel is for basic understanding a spring or spring steel. I say this because it has the ability to stretch a certain distance and return to its original shape.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using wide cut blades. I have had a good amount of experience with bands up to 12" wide but for this particular article we will deal with the most popular applications and that is blades in the 2"-6" width. Lets start with the tooth of the bandsaw blades: We know that tooth load is very important with all bandsaw blades and keeping tooth load down per square inch is the most important thing that a sawyer/sawfiler can do to preserve his bandsaw. For an illustration of this lets look at the teeth of a swage tooth or a welded tooth band. Note that all comparisons will have to be made of equal width bands for this comparison to be accurate. The swage tooth and the welded tooth have a full tooth width at the top or the leading edge.
