Bandsaw blades

Hello All,

I just got a bandsaw from a friend of mine and was wondering what the better brands of blades are? Thanks! ... It is a Jet 14"

Someone will be along shortly with a different opinion, but I like these blades..http://timberwolfblades.com/Blade-Se....php#Scrolling

I also use the "wood slicer" for re sawing

check this out http://www.toolcenter.com/BLADE_SELECTION.html

I like the Timberwolf, too, but some people have been complaining about the weld quality. Maybe it depends on who cut and welded the blade stock to length.

I just got a 1/2" Woodslicer but haven't tried it yet. The 2-3tpi 3/4" Timberwolf I have on my 14" Shop Fox resaws well.

As Crusader said, many other opinions to follow. Some folks like Olson, some like Lenox,....

Bi metal blades are good to use in resawing and I use Haltbar hard back blade for rough work.

I use both Timberwolf and Olsten blades and like both of them. I don't do much resawing.

Ill second supercut bandsaw blades.

RRBrown, knottscott and many others were banned, they didn't just leave. They were banned for standing up to the new owners that are destroying this site. Come join us all at woodworking chat, the best new woodworking site on the net!!

Sorta on this subject, I noticed the Craftsman 14" band saw uses a 101.something" blade. The Grizzly uses a 93 1/2" blade. Just a quick look at Woodcraft showed 93 1/2" blades, but no 101.something" blades. Is the Grizzly a standard size, while the Craftsman isn't?

Thanks,
Harry

I'm confused with it. Probably the Woodcraft doesn't offer 101" blade.
Grizzly and craftsman saws may have different blade sizes. I can't tell which one is in standard or not.

My 14" Craftsman Pro uses a 99 3/4" blade, but I just round up to 100 because there is a lot of adjustment and it can take up the difference.

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)
