Tod suggested in another thread shopping for carbon steel bandsaw blades based on price, since the different brands are so similar. So, I'm looking for some potential price shopping suggestions. I know the usual suspects...Suffolk Machinery (Timberwolf), Lee Valley (Viking. a.k.a. Timberwolf), and Highland Woodworking (Woodslicer and their "woodturner's" blade). I was underwhelmed with Olson blades, so they're not in the running at this point.
I'm looking for 105" long 1/2" 3tpi alternate set blades for cutting turning wood on a 14" cast iron saw with riser. Mostly green wood, but some dry and real hard. (I just picked up something that I suspect is gonna go through a few blades.) Name brand doesn't matter...I'm looking for good prices. Any suggestions?
