I just purchased the grizzly, 19”, 3hp, bandsaw. I am looking to make large corbels. They will be 8-12” think with slight curves. My question is, what blade do I want? TPI, thickness and brand? I have read several past discussions but theres not a lot of recent posts. Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have always been given good advice from the engineers at Timber Wolf Bandsaw Blades when I outline our needs. We have a Grizzly 5hp 17” bandsaw with a Co-Matic bandsaw power feeder.

Here is a couple of links to some blade info.
Good luck with your new saw. I bought the 513×2 awhile ago and love it.
I did a ton of reading when my saw was new and liked what I read about Lenox blades.
However I have not got around to buying a Lenox blade yet. Found a local shop that makes blades onsite. I figure when I use these up I will go ahead with some Lenox blades just to compare. Price is competitive with what I buy locally.
Some good reading on this site too.

Check out Precision Blades in Saltillo. Close to you, and they are very helpful.
That’s where I buy my BS blades.
