Choosing the right Jigsaw Blade for the job
Bosch jigsaw blades set the quality standard worldwide. They are powerful and durable, and vary depending on speed, precision, stability and accuracy to ensure that you have the right accessory for your application. When selecting the correct blade for your task, we encourage you to consider the following:
What Type of material are you cutting?
When selecting your Bosch Jigsaw blade, the first thing you will notice is the colour coding on each of our blades, allowing you to easily identify the type of materials the blade is most suited to.
• Grey - for wood
• Blue – for metal
• White - for wood and metal
• Black – for special applications
What type of cut do you require?
The right geometry is important when selecting the correct blade for your desired cut. Below is a quick guide on what type of teeth you need to look out for in order to achieve your desired results:
Type of teeth
Milled and Side set teeth
Blade with reletively rough cut and quick work progress cutting into hard and softwood, aluminum, plastics and non-ferrous metals.
Milled and wavy set teeth
Blade for fine, straight cutting results in plywood, soft steel, plastics aluminium and non-ferrrous metals (e.g T111C, T345XF)
Ground and side set teeth
Blade for quick cuts in wood (e.g T144D, T244D)
Ground and taper-ground teeth
Blade with taper ground backing for fine and clean cuts in wood and plastic (e.g T144D, T244D)
Each blade is named clearly to help you select the right blade for the cut you wish to carry out. For example if you required a clean straight cut in wood for example you would simply choose a Bosch Clean for Wood blade.
This is just one of the many ways Bosch tries to make selecting the right blade hassle free, we aim to provide you with all the right information in the simplest format to help you select the correct blade for the best results.
