    Abstract: A reciprocating saw blade includes a body, an attachment portion coupled to a first end portion of the body, and a cutting portion formed on the body. The cutting portion includes a plurality of cutting teeth. Each cutting tooth includes a tip, a rake face, and a relief surface. The tips of the plurality of cutting teeth define a plane. The saw blade also includes a plunge point formed on a second end portion of the body for initiating a plunge cut. The plunge point includes a leading tooth and a second tooth. The leading tooth includes a tip and a rake face and defines a leading gullet. The second tooth is positioned in the leading gullet closer to the leading tooth than to a nearest cutting tooth of the plurality of cutting teeth. The second tooth includes a tip that is spaced apart from the plane.

  • Publication number: 20140260876
    Abstract: A saw tooth for mounting onto a holder of a circular saw or of a mower drum is provided. The tooth has a mounting end for mounting against a component of the holder, a cutting end, opposite to the mounting end, the cutting end being provided with at least one cutting edge; and a plurality of sides extending from the mounting end to the cutting end. The plurality of sides include at least one holder side operatively mountable against the holder and at least one outer side opposite to the holder side the outer side being non-linear, diverging from the mounting end to the cutting end and having a contour slope which increases from the mounting end to the cutting end. The tooth thereby provides a greater clearance at its mounting end, and a greater kerf at its cutting end.

    Abstract: A saw blade comprising cutting teeth, having at least one of chip-limiters protruding from the teeth or secondary teeth in the gullets of the cutting teeth configured to mitigate the blade from over-feeding. The chip limiters and/or secondary teeth provide that only a limited portion of an object that the saw blade encounters during cutting falls below the cutting tips of the cutting teeth. The chip limiters and/or secondary teeth also assist the cutting teeth in cutting.

  • Publication number: 20140245874
    Abstract: The invention concerns a pair of saw blades, including a first blade and a second blade, which are arranged to rotate around the same rotational axis in opposite directions. Each of the blades has its own blade body and peripheral cutting elements, wherein the blade body of the first blade has a front side, which is turned towards a back side of the blade body of the second saw blade, and wherein the cutting elements form overhangs protruding from said front or back side. Said front and/or back side have/has a circumferential ridge, which is arranged peripherally inside of the cutting elements and to slide over a corresponding part or a corresponding ridge on the opposite back side and/or front side, wherein the ridge/ridges is/are made in one piece with the blade body in question and serves/serve as a spacer means to prevent the cutting elements with their overhangs to hit each other during rotation of the blades.
