What tooth pitch should you use?
Here you’ll find some helpful tips for optimizing tooth pitch, averaging variable pitch, and items that influence tooth pitch selection.
- Selecting the correct tooth pitch is important for optimized cutting results.
- The tooth pitch results from the engaged length of the blade in the material.
- If the tooth pitch is too small, irregular cutting may result. Chips may clog the cutting length, forcing the blade from its cutting line.
- If the tooth pitch is too large, teeth may break out because the cutting pressure acting upon individual teeth becomes too high.
- At least 3 teeth are recommended to be engaged to achieve an optimum cutting result.
