Jigsaw blades cut through a wide variety of materials. These power tool accessories come in handy for various projects in the construction and DIY fields. Metal jigsaw blades easily cut through hard or soft woods, plastics and thin-gauge non-ferrous metals. They have either a U-shank fitting or a T-shank fitting.
For faster wood cutting, look for blades with fewer teeth per inch. For finer cuts, choose those with more teeth. Multi-purpose blades have around 18TPI, and fine metal cutting blades have up to 24TPI. The sharpened teeth are specifically shaped for their intended application. Shorter length blades are best for cutting through thin materials, as they offer better control and there is less risk of breakage. Longer blades are availabe for use on thicker substances. Specialized jigsaw blades cut fiberglass, foam or cement board for those times you need a heavy-duty solution.
Use carbide jigsaw blades for harder jobs like cutting ceramic tiles, bricks or steel piping. Blades with bimetal technology offer more flexibility and resistance. They have a longer life expectancy and are cost-effective. For kitchen and bathroom remodeling, jigsaw blades with carbide hardened teeth cut through up to 2.5-inch countertops, leaving a perfectly clean edge. Some blades have reverse teeth which prevent splintering when cutting laminates. Double-sided blades are ideal for making small radius circular cuts or curves. Some blades have curved teeth designed to reduce stress points for delicate and intricate cuts such as detailing work.
