What type of blade should be used with a portable band saw?
When cutting metals with a Mirage portable band saw, an M42 Cobalt bi-metal blade is the way to go.
Blades if this type incorporate a high speed edge material that’s welded to a fatigue resistant spring backing. These tough blades are capable of cutting carbon steel, tool steel, structural steel, stainless steel, pipes, tubes and mixed metals. Blades supplied as standard with Mirage bandsaws are made from triple tempered M42 cobalt high speed steel with hardened teeth.
