This article presents information on a line of production cutting bi-metal saw blades introduced by L.S. Starrett Co., of Athol, Massachusetts. These materials are resistant to heat, abrasion and shock for better cutting of structural steel. The design of the product line Gladiator Emperor blades is to facilitate the cutting of structurals including bundled, tubing, I-beams, angle iron and wide-flange beams. The blades have large teeth with up to a 12-degree positive rake angle so that steels up to 42HRc, stainless nickel-based and nonferrous alloys, can be easily cut. 150-foot and 250-foot coils are used to furnish these blades.
