I had tried several cheaper blades on my bandsaw and had never been satisfied. I had come to the conclusion that it must be either me or the bandsaw (Jet 14”). After speaking with a few folks over @ SawMill Creek.
I decided to give the folks @ Suffolk Machinery a call; they make these blades. I spent about 30 minutes on the phone with their rep. They asked what kind of saw I had, What kind of work I wanted to perform and what the problems were that I was experiencing with my current setup.
They recommended a general purpose blade and this re-saw blade then talked to me about proper tensioning of the blades when I install them. I ordered both blades which arrived about a week later. I installed and tensioned the blade as recommended by the manufacturer. I have nearly an imperceptible amount of drift and it cuts like butter. I have been able to re-saw slices down to about 1/16” reliably. I can’t complain about that!
Great product and great customer service, it’s hard to go wrong with that!
