The L.S. Starrett Company offers the newly positioned Intenss Bi-Metal Band Saw Blades for general purpose metal sawing of a wide range of materials and shapes.

Intenss multi-purpose band saw bladesFeaturing a patented process developed by Starrett called bi-metal unique technology, that provides 170 percent more weld contact with the teeth, Intenss blades exhibit superior resistance to tooth strippage, significantly reducing fracture and breakage, which enables exceptionally long blade life. Performance is further enhanced by M-42 teeth with a multi-edge tooth design that produces split chips for faster cutting.

“Starrett Intenss is an ideal affordable workhorse blade for general sawing in toolrooms, maintenance shops and fabricating or machine shop applications where one blade cutting a wide range of common materials with different shapes is a good sawing solution,” said Jordan Schimel, Starrett product manager – Saws & Hand Tools. “In addition, bi-metal unique promotes long blade life, so fewer blade changes are required.”
