Saw Blade Guide

Posted by John Rennie on

Most homeowners will have an electric saw in their toolkit. They’re incredibly useful for cutting things like wood, plastic and metal, and they are typically handheld or mounted onto a worktop to make projects easier to undertake. 

Electric saws, as mentioned, can be used to cut many different materials, making them perfect for household DIY projects. They’re an all-encompassing piece of kit, but one blade does not fit all. Depending on the project you’re embarking on, you will need to swap out the blades to avoid damaging the saw and to get the best possible finish when cutting. 

To make it easier for you to identify which blades you need, we’ve put together this saw blade guide. 

Jigsaws

The first type of electric saw is a jigsaw which is a straight blade that moves in an up and down movement. Jigsaws can be used to create long, straight cuts or smooth, curved cuts. We have jigsaw wood saw blades available to buy online, ideal for wood. 

Whether you’re looking for Dewalt, Makita or Evolution saw blades, our universal pack of five will suit your model of saw. We’ve highlighted some of the key attributes of this pack below:

  • Suitable for OSB, plywood and other soft woods between 6mm and 60mm thick (¼ inch to 2-3/8 inches)
  • T-shank design suits over 90% of jigsaw models on the market presently
  • 5-6 teeth per inch, side set and ground
  • 4-inch blade length (3-inch usable)
  • Made from high carbon steel for longevity and faster sawing

If you want to find out more about our jigsaw blades and whether they’ll fit your model, please call us on 0161 477 9577. 

Circular Saws

Here at Rennie Tool, we are leading suppliers of circular saw blades in the UK. Our TCT saw blade range is extensive, with 15 different sizes available to buy online. If you’re looking for Dewalt, Makita or Festool circular saw blades, or any other standard handheld wood circular saw brand, our TCT selection will fit your machine. 

On our website, you will find a circular saw blade size guide that also lists the number of teeth, the cutting edge thickness, the borehole size and the size of the reduction rings included. To summarise, the sizes we provide are: 85mm, 115mm, 135mm, 160mm, 165mm, 185mm, 190mm, 210mm, 216mm, 235mm, 250mm, 255mm, 260mm, 300mm and 305mm. 

To find out more about our circular saw blades and which size or how many teeth you need, please contact us and we’ll be happy to advise. Please be aware that our online blades are only suitable for cutting wood. If you’re using your saw to cut metal, plastic or masonry, you will need to source specialised blades. 

Multi-Tool Saw Blades

In addition to our selection of circular and jigsaw blades, we also supply multi-tool/oscillating saw blades suitable for cutting wood and plastic. Our blades are designed to fit a number of different models, including Batavia, Black and Decker, Einhell, Ferm, Makita, Stanley, Terratek and Wolf.
