Searching rows for values, appending fields based on those values.

I have a table with one field called Cutwidth and Toothware. Cutwidth's values can either be 8, 12 or 16. Base on whatever value is in Cutwidth, I want my program to run a field calculator equation for the value of Toothware. Each equation is different based on the value of 8, 12 or 16. I currently am using a select by attribute tool and then filed calculator to do these steps, but instead of select by attribute, I would prefer to use something like a search cursor to read each value in a row and do something within that row based on that value. I am not getting the results I want w search cursor and was wondering if anyone had input for me to solve this issue?
