Sawmill Blade Thickness x Width Selection Guide

Blade Thickness

Thickness is the thickness of the body of the sawmill blade without including tooth set.

  • Thicker blades (.045", .050", .055") provide faster feed rates and better cutting performance in difficult sawing conditions such as knotty, frozen, dry or extremely hard material, but require higher horsepower (25HP or more).
  • Thinner blades (.035", .038", .042") provide longer flex life with lower horsepower (24HP or less) sawmills where production or speed is not a primary factor.

Blade Width

Width is the distance between the tip and base of the sawmill blade.

  • Wider blades (1-1/2” to 2”) are for higher horsepower (25HP or more) sawmills and a faster feed rate.
  • Narrow blades (1” to 1-1/2”) are for lower horsepower (24HP or less) sawmills and more difficult sawing.

Sawmill Blade Hook Angle Selection Guide

Blade Hook Angle

Hook angle is the number of degrees that the tooth face leans forward of 90 degrees.

Back angle is the number of degrees that the backside of the tooth leans backward of 90 degrees.

The hook angle and back angle of a sawmill blade should be chosen based on the type of wood you are sawing and what type of equipment you are sawing with.

  • 10° Sawmill Blades - Most popular and versatile all-purpose hook angle with a 30° back angle for sawing softwoods, medium hardwoods, and hardwoods including birch, beech, red oak, cherry, walnut, soft maple, pine and poplar.
  • 9° Sawmill Blades - Ideal hook angle with a 29° back angle for lower horsepower (24HP or less) sawing in frozen wood, hardwood, and small diameter logs.
  • Turbo 747 Sawmill Blades - Only available from Wood-Mizer, this popular hook angle with an extreme 47° back angle for faster sawing speeds is compatible with all horsepower levels and features a deeper gullet capacity for increased sawdust removal and sharp penetrating points for increased accuracy when sawing softwoods and hardwoods.
  • Turbo 7° Sawmill Blades - Only available from Wood-Mizer, this high-performing hook angle with an aggressive 39° back angle is designed for higher horsepower (25HP or more) and higher feed rate sawing in extreme hardwoods including white oak, hickory, ash, hard maple and more.
  • 7° Sawmill Blades - Solid, all-around hook angle with a 34° back angle and additional gullet capacity for higher horsepower (25HP or more) sawing in hardwoods.
  • 4° Sawmill Blades - Lowest hook angle with a 32° back angle for sawing very hard, frozen, or partly frozen hardwoods with high density including acacia, beech, oak, hornbeam, and ash.
  • 12° Sawmill Blades - Ideal hook angle with a 28° back angle for sawing softwoods and resawing.
  • Vortex™ Sawmill Blades - Only available from Wood-Mizer, this unique dust-removal sawmill blade has more gullet capacity to remove sawdust from the board.

Sawmill Blade Tooth Spacing Selection Guide

Blade Tooth Spacing

Tooth spacing is the distance between each tooth from one tip to another. The pitch of a sawmill blade is also used in reference to tooth spacing as the number of teeth per inch or TPI on a bandsaw blade.

  • Shorter tooth spacing (1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4”) is used for low horsepower (24HP or less) sawing and resaw purposes, or secondary processing.
  • Most common tooth spacing (7/8") is for all-purpose sawing and recommended for most portable sawmill equipment.
  • Wider tooth spacing (1” and 1-1/4”) is for higher horsepower (25HP or more) sawmills and high production.
