Hey, aren’t you guys suppose to be working?:mrgreen:

Just got done with lunch.

Measured at 14 teeth per inch, saw length undefined, irrelevent to term


It totally depends on the amount of inches per saw blade.
My answer is indeterminable without further measurement of the blade.
To do this formula we need at the minimum 2 constants.
And you haven’t provided those.

Ok! Ok!
4= 15!

Here’s a copy of jjonas’s reply:

Measured at 14 teeth per inch

There has to be only one answer…
If this is a trick question it is stupid.
Either ask intelligent questions or not!
I could have a mill saw blade at 36 plus inches…

Roy wins. You lucky dog.

You don’t know how many teeth on a 14 tooth hand saw unless you know how long it is.
This was a joke question and the joker got it right. :mrgreen:

Congratulations Roy.
You know the drill. :slight_smile:
