Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw

I received an email from Carter today that they have 15% off their B/S & Lathe accessories through April 26th.
Their B/S blades appear to be a little pricey ( about $24.50), but discount would help. I have their guides & stabilizer (like them), but haven’t used their blades. I primarily use 1/8” to 1/4”.

Any thoughts or experience with Carter blades?
Thanks.

I would think the blades are good. No experience with them, but their other products are high quality. Actually the price is not bad either. Any quality blade will cost you at least that much. I just went with the wood slicer blade from Highland, for resawing. Very very happy with it.

I appreciate the responses…
hairy & chiseler, if you don’t mind, what type of projects do you use the blades for…?
Thanks.

I’ve tried others – always went back to Carter.

Most of the projects I have posted here that were done with a bandsaw were cut with Carter blades. Previously I used Olsen, because I could purchase them locally.

Thanks Hairy.
Nubsnstubs – I do not know.
In the video Snodgrass mentions carbon base steel & some other things about the blades, but my knowledge base is pathetically low.
