14" bs only. What blade

For people who only have a 14" bs. What blade do you keep in it as a rule?

Although I have different sized blades, I keep a 1/2" blade on mine mostly.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

It's just like the table saw ...

It depends on what you do most.... ripping/resawing or general crosscuts and larger radius curves. One blade won't work in all conditions. :frown2:
I'm lucky enough to have two identical 14" Craftsman bandsaws, side by side, one with a 1/2" 3 TPI blade for resaws, and the other with a 6 TPI 3/8" for general purposes. Oh, I forgot I also have a 10" Craftsman with a 1/4" wide 6TPI blade for just odd ball stuff and smaller radius curves. Oh, and then there's an 18" MinMax with a 3/4" resaw blade, rarely used.

Changing the blades on a bandsaw is about like changing the blades on a table saw, it's just inconvenient in the middle of a project. That's one reason why I have more than one table saw.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
