Tooth Point

The tooth point is the tip of a band saw blade tooth or other cutting tool, where the tooth face and the tooth back meet. Tooth points are responsible for initiating the cutting action, penetrating the workpiece material, and guiding the blade through the cut. The shape, angle, and sharpness of the tooth point significantly impact the cutting performance, surface finish, and durability of the blade. Proper tooth point maintenance, such as regular sharpening, is crucial for ensuring optimal cutting results.
