I’ve ruined more than I care to admit. I used to use Timberwolf 3/4” like Patron. How much money you got? You game for carbide? According to the authority on bandsaw blades (Iturra), there are basically two brands for resaw, Starrett and Lenox. I’m assuming you either want to go with 1/2 inch (0.025”), 3/4 (0.32”), or 1” (0.35”). The carbine Lenox 3 hook will run you $15 a foot in 1/2 or 3/4 inch. The Starret bimetals are around $5/foot. My bandsaw takes almost 12 foot blades, so carbide’s out for me. I bought Starrett’s 3 skip carbon for $2/foot. I’m happy with it. If you’ve got a smaller bandsaw, you might be able to go up to the binetals in Lenox or Starrett. Good luck!
