Question Help with numbers on saw blade

We have some saw blades imported from Sweden, and we want to sell them, but I am having a hard time finding the exact blade to figure out the value. We have about 50 of them. If anyone can please explain what some of the numbers printed on the blade mean, I would so appreciate it.

the numbers I am having the hardest time with is the kerf. On the box it states 1,6. I was thinking maybe this was a typo and it should have read 1.6, since all of the measurements are in mm. That would make the kerf 1/16 in., or so I thought. when I looked at the actual blade, these are the numbers I see:

1,6/1,1/2,6

Now I am really confused

Anyhow, we acquired these when we bought the old Harris-Tarkett manufacturing plant, so I would say they are not cheap blades. I am attaching pics of the box and the blade.

In case you can't read all of the numbers on the blade, here they are:

Type is 20BA26X followed by 250 then 1,6/1,1/2,6
d=70 (I think that's supposed to be the bore #)
z=30

Under that is 2023-11273-2383
n.max 7.200

I don't know what the numbers are but the blades if they are all like the one pictured are gang saw blades. It's a type blade that is put on a shaft with spacers so you can rip a board into multiple strips in one pass. They may even be model specific for a particular machine.

That makes sense since they were bought by Harris Tarkett for use in their flooring manufacturing plant. They made all of their Parquet at that plant.

As Steve has said above, these are specialty blades made to run on specific machinery. They are probably all expensive blades. They should be sold with the machinery they were bought to run on.
Whoever buys the equipment in the Plant you bought will need these blades.
The average woodworker cannot use these blades.

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

I really don't know about these type blades. Hopefully the 70 is the bore size which would mean 70mm 2 key. Measure the diameter of the blade and the bore size. Lets say they are 10", you could list them as 10" diameter 30 teeth gang saw blades 70 mm 2 key. http://www.carbideprocessors.com/rip...tools-rf1024k/

If the bore size was 70mm I don't think they are specific for a particular machine.

Europeans use commas for decimals where we would use periods.

Perhaps you could get a list of the customers who bought the machines.

I would list them on Ebay, with the information that is on the package, that is what anyone using that blade would be searching for. Anyone that doesn't understand the specs likely isn't going to be interested in them anyway.
