Topic tags/keywords: puzzle box bandsaw 116 blade

I have a 14” bandsaw and I’ve begun to make band saw boxes that require a locking key to be cut. But the key is a bit too sloppy when fit into the hole. I read in a book by Donna Menke that she uses a 1/16” blade to cut the keys. The problem is I can’t seem to find a supplier of a blade of that size. Can anyone help? Thanks.

highlandwoodworking.com sells currently 3/16’’ and 1/8'' blades

for some reason I thought I bought from them in the past 3/32” blades but I can’t find it anymore on their website

Try this company. It is a link to their PDF that shows their blade selections. They sell 1/16” blades.

ive seen them… but i wouldn’t know were to buy them. They’re pretty handy little blades but be careful because they are generally very fine and can burn the wood or break pretty easily

Shopsmith sells a 3/32, 18 tpi, milled blade for their bandsaw. Their saw uses a 72 in. blade and that’s all they sell.
