Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw

I’ve ordered the S400P with top/bottom precision GL456 guides
look like :
http://www.velaveb-france.com/infos.asp?id=58
(S400P is supposed to be same as MM16 – all Centauro saws). I’m buying it here in
Croatia / it’s coming from Italy and I asked both the sales person here and also
Minimax in Canada and they all say the minimum blade width is 10mm for this saw.

If you are using a narrower blade, I would appreciate to know how you are
doing it / which guides(this is my first (and hopefully I don’t need another one ;) )bandsaw, so
maybe a stupid question, but I’d like to know how this works/ maybe order a
few blades in the meantime before it arrives)

Vjeko it has been a while since you posted this. Did you try the narrower blades? Did you have any problems with them?

Mark, haven’t been frequenting so much and I still haven’t bought any blades, but in the very near future
when I have the garage/workshop finally organised, I’ll be needing to sort this out also.

Hope you get the shop sorted out. I can sure understand how time in the shop doesn’t always get top priority.
