I bought a new Rikon 18” band Saw for my shop a few weeks ago. This is really my first band saw and I am very happy with it. I decided on buying a couple of after market blades by a very reputable manufacturer but I had so many issues with them that I send those back to woodcraft where I bought them. The third blade came directly from the manufacturer and for some reason did much better for me than the first two. Still, cuts with this 3/4” wide, 2-3 TPI blade were not as smooth a...

The Wood Slicer bandsaw blades from Highland Woodworking are awesome. When I first purchased my “Rikon 14 deluxe bandsaw my local Woodcraft store said that the 1/2” blade that came with it was pretty good. I took their advice on that, and also purchased a 3/4” 3TPI Timber Wolf blade for resawing. Both seemed to work, but my results were so-so. For the first real challenge I resawed some green cherry logs for turning blanks. I started with the blade that came with the saw. Meh. It really...

When I first got my Grizzly bandsaw, I was pretty disappointed with the results with the blade provided.

I checked the reviews here on lumberjocks and finewoodworking.com and decided to get this blade. It arrived today and after spending a few minutes getting it installed I was ready for a test c...

Just after Christmas I got two new band saw blades from Iturra Design (no web site) in Florida. The blade I’m reviewing here is a 105” 3/4” woodslicer 3/4 TPI. (That means it’s variable, 3 teeth in one inch, 4 the next) for $21.20. Along with Mark Duginske and his Band Saw Handbook, the guys at Iturra are band saw gurus. I believed in them before, but I hadn’t bought into their recommendations on blades. I don’t know what I was thinking. My saw is a 3/4...

A Worthy bandsaw blade

I have been using these blades for years now and they are fantastic. They do a great jog resawing. They create no vibration and noise due to their variable tooth spacing from 3 to 4 TPI. Leaves a great finish also.I have cut perfect .093” think slices off of an 11 1/2” board. Fine Woodworking April 2004 has rated their Wood Slicer blade as “Best All-Round Performer” in their independent test for speed, flatness and smoothness! It also has a very thin blade of .022”. At...
