The number of teeth and the angle at which they are offset is referred to as tooth set. Tooth set affects cutting efficiency, and quality of the cut. Sawmill band blades typically follow a Raker three tooth pattern with a uniform set distance left and right, and a third straight “raker” tooth.
Bandsaw blades need to have the teeth set to produce material with a high-quality surface and effectively remove the sawdust from the milled log. A new blade will come with the manufacturer’s recommended set; however, with regular use teeth naturally lose their set, or flatten, over time, which reduces blade efficiency. When the blade strikes a nail or other foreign object if the teeth are not broken off, they will be knocked out of set. Poor set can cause the blade to dive/climb or produce wavy or scored boards and even generate excessive heat due to poor sawdust ejection, leading to premature failure or breakage.
Yes, the ProSetter is used to maintain the Raker 3-tooth set pattern, which is the most common blade set for carbon steel bandsaw blades. This means the blade teeth are arranged with straight cutting teeth, left-set teeth, and right-set teeth. Cutting teeth initiate the cut, while left and right-set teeth work together to efficiently remove material, prevent binding, and maintain a consistent kerf width. This design ensures smooth and effective cutting, especially in sawmill applications for processing wood.
