Rem-grit bandsaw blades

Post by SteveM » Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:09 pm

I just saw a Rem-grit bandsaw blade.

I have a Rem-grit hacksaw blade, although I've never used it. Think it says you can cut glass and tile with it.

I have a Rem-grit screwdriver - the embedded carbide particles make it east to get a slotted screw out.

What would one use a Rem-grit bandsaw blade for.

I think it may work for cutting chrome moly, hard scale or even non-machinable welds. Stuff where the sharpest blade teeth just float off of. I was cutting some stuff by hand which just broke the blade. I bought some blades with similar carbide "grit" and they worked okay. I knew about these but didn't have any. We had been thinking about the same edge applied to a band saw blade but didn't know how they could do that.
