I recently purchased a new Grizzley G0457 14” bandsaw and was wondering if someone could recommend a blade manufacturer for good quality blades. The blades for this machine are 106” which I don’t seem to be able to find except the low quality ones that Grizzley sells with the machine.

I would second the Woodslicer, especially for resawing. I have had pretty good luck with Grizzly blades in the 3/16th range.

Just to clarify. The Grizzly blades I got were after market from Amazon.com (fulfilled by Peachtree Woodworking). I agree that most stock blades that come with the saw are garbage blades at best but the after market Grizzly’s have cut very well for me. I use the 3/16” skip tooth all the time for bandsaw boxes and it holds up great.

I believe you could get a 105” blade to fit on it and a 105” is a common size available where band saw blades are sold. I bought a 1/2” Timber wolf blade and for some reason it would not cut worth a damn and would not track straight so I returned it and exchanged it for an Olsen 1/2” blade and what a difference! I presumed that the Timberwolf was defective. I’ll have to try the Highland woodslicer next time.
