Grizzly Bandsaw 14 Model G0555XH

-img_2531.jpg-img_2528.jpg-img_2526.jpg-img_2525.jpg


I finally got My Bandsaw with BearClay dolly to move around.It been in my shop for a couple of weeks because iam very excited and want to do a unboxing video.I must share this with fellow would workers,Iam a kid with a new toy and must show and tell..
My ? To fellow wood workers before I use the bandsaw I must get myself on 3 basics bandsaw blades.Iam looking to go with Timberwolf blades.
My question is if the fellow wood workers on here if you can give me 3 basics bandsaw blade sizes.I willing to spend a little extra to have the best blades I want them to last as long as I can help them last so if possible some advise and sizes on blades the must have blades to have in your shop for straight cuts and of course curves.
Thank you
Freddy

I use Timberwolf 3/4" wide blades for resawing

They are made from good steel and hold an edge well. I get them right from Grizzly usually 6 at a time to save on shipping for such a lightweight item. Here's a good article on what types of blades there are and what size you need for cutting radii:
https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entri...e-should-i-buy


A lot of woodworkers use a blade with too many teeth per inch and wonder why it won't cut straight, over heats and cuts with a curved kerf. I'd avoid a woodcutting blade with more than 10 TPI and I prefer a 6 TPI blade in 1/2" or 3/8" widths as a general purpose blade.



Lenox also makes good blades and this site will weld them to order:

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)

Woodnthings has given excellent advice on the blades, I have nothing to add. except this:

Your saw may be set up from the factory and work just fine, but it would still be good idea to watch this video, he has a lot of good advice:

I agree with Frank. Just about every new tool, hand or power, will need some fine tuning from the very beginning. It will just be a trial and error in some cases to find what works best for you. Remember, what works great for one person doesn't always work great for someone else.

Nothing in life that is "worth the effort" is ever easy.

You sound like me, my wife calls me the little kid at Christmas when I have a tool on the way


And like a pouty little snot if it doesn't get delivered when it was supposed to be. If they send it UPS freight I don't ever expect it when they say, have hosed me every time they deliver

I also use Timber Wolf blades, and for what blades I needed I called TW and they advised me what I needed. I also ask here and the answers I got were about the same. TW also has very good customer service.

The basic tune up or adjustment process is the same:
Remove the table
Back away all the guides
Track the blade on the upper wheel
Bring the guides back into "kiss" the blade contact
Reinstall the table
Make a test cut
