The jigsaw blades are used to cut:
- Sandwich panels (alucobond, dibond) 1-3mm.
- Aluminium sheet metal up to 3mm.
The cutting part of the blade is +/-26mm less than the total length.
The blades are long life blades.
The T-shank jigsaw blades are compatible with all new jigsaws. Some jigsaws have a quick release system that allows the user to replace jigsaw blades without the help of any tools.
The U-shank is an older shank style and is not as popular as the T-shank. These blades require the user to fasten the blade with a retaining screw.
Teeth Per Inch (TPI):
The Teeth Per Inch is a standard measurement to determine the amount of teeth measured within 25.4mm. This is usefull to know when blades are designed to cut specific materials and what the finish of the cut will be. Metal cutting blades have a much finer TPI than wood cutting blades and the teeth are also smaller. Fast cutting blades have less TPI than clean cutting blades.
Distance between teeth:
This is similar to the teeth per inch measurement, but makes it easier to know whether a jigsaw blade is a fast cutting blade, or a clean cutting blade. The bigger the distance between the teeth, the bigger the teeth will be.
