My beloved carbide tipped bandsaw blade broke recently. I'm hoping to get it welded back together. It didn't break at the original weld, so I'm expecting that the blade will end up getting shortened a bit. I'm wondering how much it can be shortened and still fit onto the saw. I have a Delta 14" bandsaw that takes a 93-1/2" blade. I stretched out the broken blade and what do you know, it's exactly 93-1/2 inches. How much shorter can it go (if at all) and still go back on the saw?
