Recently, I was doing some resawing with my bandsaw when the blade broke. It was a brand new blade that had hardly been used. It broke right where it had been “butt” welded at the factory. I had forgotten how to repair a bandsaw blade since it’s been so long since I’ve done it. I found this link which gives very detailed information on how to do it, and I wanted to share it with all who can use it.
You can find this information, along with a downloadable PDF file of the procedure – along with great pictures of the process at this link. I hope it is helpful to some here.
I would also like to mention that I have repaired blades with this silver solder method, and have not had one to break on the splice, so it is a very good and reliable method.
