(Length x Width x Thickness).
Material: Determine the following for the material to be cut:
• Material Type/Grade

Use the charts below.
• Locate the type of material to be cut in the top row.
• Read down the chart to find which blade is recommended.
STEP #3: DETERMINE THE PROPER NUMBER OF TEETH PER INCH (TPI)
• Use the Bi-metal Tooth Selection chart on page 25.
