Our 3/8” x 3 tpi x .032 blades are made of Swedish Silicon Steel and are slightly thicker than our .025 blades. The 3/8” x 3 tpi x .032 blades are generally used for cutting green or exotic woods from 6”-12” in height as the kerf is opened up a little wider to remove the sawdust and keep the blade from being pinched. They can make a 1-1/4” radius cut and are a favorite of our woodturners for cutting smaller radius bowl blanks, vases, etc. or straight cutting green or exotic woods of that height. These blades are not made for use on blade lengths of less than 90”.
