and much safer than any flat
blade, the unique Bestway Wire Spyral design allows
cutting in any direction. Made of specially hardened
steel, all edges of the Spyral Blade are cutting
edges. They easily follow contours and allow tight
and intricate cuts (including square and circular
cuts) that are impossible to make with other saw
blades. Spyral blades are easy to handle and do not readily cut human flesh.
Continuous loop Spyral blades for bandsaws and
other specialized equipment are welded to your required length
in .040”, .050”, or .074” diameter. These
blades are resistance welded and heat treated for maximum weld
life. Welded blades are the most common product used
in aerospace and industry. Maximum blade life is achieved
on bandsaws with 24” or larger wheels. Blades are
run at speeds up to 5,000 sfm.
Bestway Roller Guides allow the use of Spyral
Bandsaw Blades on existing bandsaw machines. They are
a common part for both upper and lower guide positions. The
customer must make upper and lower brackets for mounting the
guides on the bandsaw.
Fits standard hacksaw frames. Eyelets can be removed for threading through small holes for internal cuts. Available in cards of 3
or in bulk.
This saw was designed specifically for use with Spyral sawblades by a major customer in Japan. It is the standard coping saw found in Japan. We have given it a larger ergonomically designed handle for the American Market. This saw applies greater tension on the blade than typical of conventional coping saws. For details on the Freestyle Saw see www.freestylesaw.com
Freestyle Spyral Sawblades are for use with the Freestyle Saw. They are available in .028, .040, and .050 inch diameters, packaged in envelopes of 5. The .040” diameter is the most versatile standard size used. The ends can be removed and replaced for use as a hole saw.
Coping Saw Blades
These are Spyral sawblades for use on conventional American coping saws that normally use a pinned blade. The end of the blade has a thinner cross piece that fits the slot that would receive the pin of a conventional flat blade. The slotted fittings on the saw must be oriented in line with the blade. If the saw uses a perpendicular rod with a slot on the top, it will not hold the blade in position adequately. The round Spyral blade part is the same as the Freestyle blades and available in the same diameters.
Jeweler Blades & Scroll Saw Blades
Available for use in jeweler's saws or pin vises.
They cut, file or shape plexiglass, casting wax, metals and
other materials. The flexibility of the spyral blade allows
cuffing even while the blade is bent. Available for clamp in
style scroll saw (no pins). Available in fine, medium and
Surgical Gigli Saws
Used in surgery for cutting bone and adhesive bonds, Bestway’s
round gigli saw is a vast improvement over the old type made
from twisted wires. Made from a single stainless steel
wire Bestway surgical saws have no fine wires to break. Spyral
surgical blades have a definite, carefully formed 360° cutting
edge which cuts smoothly and cleanly in any direction. Looped
ends are carefully formed and ground to reduce catching. These
precision blades are self cleaning, flexible and much faster
to use. Available in .040" standard and .028" fine diameters.
This is the original pocket saw always carried by famed test pilot Chuck Yaeger. Badly burned after being forced to bail out during a test flight at 104,000 feet, this is the saw used to cut through his pressure suits neck ring to remove his helmet. Lightweight and compact, it can be coiled up into a shirt pocket or easily included in survival and camping kits.
This is a larger, heavier duty version of the Pocket Saw. This saw has a heavier and longer blade (.050” diameter instead of .040” and 24” long instead of 20” long). The blade is made of rust resistant stainless steel suitable for cutting wood and bone. The larger rings are much more comfortable to grip than the “thumb rings” of the Pocket Saw. Yet, it still only weighs 1 oz.
This survival saw has been used by the U.S. Military
for over 30 years. Originally developed by the USAF for
a pilot survival kit, this saw meets the government specification
NSN 5110-00-570-6896. This saw comes with sturdy steel
removable end fittings with heavy duty rings. Each unit
is packaged in a kraft envelope and comes with a spare blade.

Spyral blades are available in 100 foot coils,
allowing the customer to cut the blades to any length required. They
are used for reciprocating saws, cutting machines which do
not require welded blades, portable powered two man reciprocating
sawing, large manual sling saws and many other applications.
Steel Handle Grips
These simple hand grips are for use with .028, .040, and .050" diameter blade stock (i.e. coil stock). Each handle has a slot in it which can be used to tighten the thumb screw on the opposite handle.
Stainless Steel Blades
Spyral blades are available in stainless steel
for medical, food processing, hunting, and other applications. These
can to cut to any length, with or without end fittings or purchased
as coil stock. Stainless blades are made in .028,.040 and
.050 inch diameters. These blades cut bone, wood, etc. but do not cut metals.
Spyral blades cut to your specified length for
your specific purpose. Common uses are for machine components,
specialized tools and cleaning devices.
