Typical tooth types
Flat top: Typically used for ripping wood. Advantages: Cuts both sides
of the kerf simultaneously, and it has large included angles between the
cutting edges that strengthen the tooth form. Disadvantages: The tooth
form generates a relatively large cutting pressure which can lead to
chip or tear out, and the low side clearance angles inhibit chip flow.
Alternate Top Bevel: Typically used for general and crosscut saw
blades. Advantage: Produces low cutting pressures that almost eliminate
the tendency to tear out. Disadvantage: The cutting forces perpendicular
to the beveled edge result in semi-lateral thrusts on the saw body.
Conical Form: Used on scoring blades. Advantages: Good wear
resistance and low tooth drag. Disadvantages: The form’s blunt edges
make for a relatively low shear, generating high cutting pressures
which tend to produce chip outs.
