Developed for cutting thick-walled structural materials that tend to close into the cut
Genesis Metal 5.5 3 4 Pitch


Precision Blades “Terminator” is a M42 high cobalt Bi-Metal blade - developed for cutting thick walled structural materials that tend to close into the cut. The unique tooth design with a 10 degree positive raker face angle eliminates this occurrence, eliminating blade damage due to binding while cutting heavy structural beams and stacked/bundled tubing. 

The “Terminator” blade material is manufactured using high cobalt European mined ore. The chemical composition of the finished product possesses a unique metallurgical structure exclusive for all Precision Blade products. Our state of the art manufacturing processes is methodical in guaranteeing every tooth is properly sized, set and extra sharp. Precision Blades proprietary welding process also delivers a stronger bond which withstands higher feed rates than other blades on the market.

To insure maximum life of M42 band saw blades it is extremely important to properly break them in.

The correct procedure after installation is to reduce the feed force into the material at 50% of normal speed for a period of 20 minutes. Then gradually increase feed force in 4 steps during a 10 minute period. This break-in process can extend blade life up to 50%.
