RING SAW BLADE
Ringsaw blades are abrasive rather than toothed. The brittleness of this abrasive coating and the need to avoid flexure is why they are made as rings rather than oval bands. As the ring is a circle of constant radius, the blade is not flexed or bent in operation. The blades themselves are not usually rigid and may be bent slightly in fitting, but are not designed to be flexed as they rotate.
