Material: High Carbon Steel (HCS) or High-Speed Steel (HSS) is often used for speed blades. HCS is flexible and ideal for cutting softer materials like wood, whereas HSS is more durable and maintains a sharp edge longer.
Tooth Design: Speed blades often have a relatively low Teeth Per Inch (TPI) count – usually around 4-6 TPI. This tooth configuration allows for faster cuts, but the finish might be rougher than with a fine-cut blade.
Blade Length: The blade length varies depending on the required cutting depth. Common lengths for wood-cutting blades range from 75mm (3 inches) to 100mm (4 inches).
Blade Type: Jigsaw blades come in two main types, T-shank and U-shank. The type you need depends on your jigsaw’s compatibility. T-shank is more common and widely accepted in most modern jigsaws.
Cutting Style: While designed for speed, these blades can often handle both straight and curved cuts. However, due to the lower TPI, they might not be ideal for very intricate or tight curves.
Working Material: Though designed for wood, these blades might also cut other soft materials like laminates or plastics. Always check the manufacturer’s instructions for material suitability.
Blade Width: Speed blades are often wider than precision blades. The additional width helps with straight cuts and increases the blade stability, which can help achieve a faster cutting speed.
Set and Ground Teeth: For speed cutting, the teeth are often set (bent outwards) and ground to a sharp edge. This design helps with fast, efficient cutting.
