Some of you who read my ramblings know that I have been setting up my second shop build bandsaw to make curved cuts, giving me one for curves and one for resawing.
The only thing I have been lacking is a blade. I have an extra resaw blade, but since noone locally carries a 105” blade, I had to order one for curved cuts because, as I found out, a resaw blade does not do this very well.
So I ordered a quarter inch wide blade. After reading reviews, here and elsewhere, I settled on getting the Timber Wolf blade. Everyone seems to agree that they are quality blade.
So I placed my order and waited.
It arrived amazingly fast. I placed my order online Friday. So I wasn’t expecting it until the middle of the week at the earliest, especially with today being the Monday after Thanksgiving. So I was surprised when it came in today.
I opened the box to find it, not wrapped in the fancy orange paper I usually see from Highland, where I ordered it from, but wrapped in newspaper.
I unwrapped this and got quite angry.
No I wasn’t angry because it was wrapped in newspaper. Times are hard. Anything that keeps the blade from rattling around and cutting the box open I guess worked.
You don’t see what I’m angry about?
How about now?
Doesn’t that just make one bite ten penny nails in two?
I’ll give you an even close look then.
Who in the world does that?
That just aint right.
I think I’m going to call up that company and raise cane.
Why would anyone send out a paper with the crossword already done?
In all seriousness though. I’ve only tested the blade for a few minutes. So I won’t write up a review or anything at the moment. It seems to be a very good blade. As a matter of fact, it cuts cleaner, and with a smaller radius circle, than my old Craftsman saw could have ever dreamed of.
I think I’m going to like this much better than what I’ve been using.
And I think I can even forgive them enough to go find my own crossword.
