Circular Saw Blades
Wovar offers a large selection of circular saw blades. The diameters of our blades range from 160 to 250 mm, and the number of teeth on the blade from 24 (T24) to 48 (T48). The number of teeth determines the speed of the saw. A blade with fewer teeth will cut through the wood faster, but will not be as neat as a blade with more teeth. This works great for construction projects where the look of the beam is not important. If the appearance is essential, it is better to select a blade with a high number of teeth. These blades are slower, but the result is smoother and more accurate. On top of that, it produces fewer splinters.
The width of the saw blade determines the width of the cut. You will find this number on the product page of the blade. The diameter of the blade determines how deep you can cut and consequently the maximum dimensions of the object you want to cut.
Frequently asked questions
What should I take into consideration when buying a circular saw blade?
The most important issue to think about is what kind of project you are working on. Is it a project that requires precision and clean cuts? Or is it a project where speed is more essential than perfection? A circular saw blade with a lot of teeth is slower but more accurate and clean. A blade with fewer teeth is faster, but produces rougher cuts with more splinters. You also have to take into account the diameter of the blade. The blade should be able to pass through the wood and have at least 33 mm leftover in order to make a complete cut.
How many teeth should a circular saw blade have?
The number of teeth on a blade determine the speed and accuracy of the cut. The more teeth, the cleaner the cut and the slower the cutting speed. The fewer teeth, the rougher the cut and the faster the cutting speed. So the answer depends on the task the blade should fulfil. For a neat, precise cut, take a blade with 48 teeth (T48). If you are working on a project where you do not mind the splinters, take a blade with 24 teeth (T24). For a compromise between the two, go for a blade with 30 teeth (T30).
When should I replace my circular saw blade?
When you notice the teeth becoming dull, it is time to replace the blade. You can recognise this by the discolouration of the teeth or the increased width of the cut. You can also detect this in a less pleasant way, when the circular saw jams more often. If this happens, check all the important parts to find the origin of the problem. Some saw blades do not have to be replaced, as they can be sharpened. This depends on the type of teeth on the blade.

A rough or precise cut?
The number of teeth on the blade greatly influences the end result. The rule is: the fewer teeth on the blade, the faster you can work, and the rougher the cuts will be. More teeth results in a more precise and clean cut. When cutting posts and beams that are purely structural and will be covered, appearance is not that important. However, with, for example, furniture, you want the cut to be as clean as possible. Ask yourself how significant a clean cut is for your project, so you can decide on the best circular saw blade for you.
Should the blade be the same brand as my saw?
You can use Wovar's saw blades for any circular saw. Just keep in mind that blades with a diameter of 250 mm are only suitable for stationary saws and not for portable ones. The disc bore size ranges from 20 to 30 mm, so they will fit on most circular saws. Check the dimensions of your circular saw before buying a saw blade.
Saw blade grooves
Between the teeth, there is a groove that allows the heat to escape, so the blade will not overheat. The result is that these saw blades last a lot longer. These gullets between the teeth become smaller when the blade has more teeth. These blades do not last as long, but do create a much cleaner cut.
Next to heat dispersion, the gullets lower the noise level of the saw and allow room for the blade to slightly expand. Finally, the gullets minimalise the tremors of the saw.
