Hey, I have several 12” blades for my Oliver 232 table saw but they cut about 2 1/4” max. I need a good 14” blade for occasional cutting deeper than that. A good used blade would be OK, or what do you recommend as a source for new ones? Thanks, JMc.

I would say ask whomever is sharpening your blades now. They could probably make you one or would know of someplace local for you.

not familiar with the oliver232but my 12” table saw can easily do a100mm cut [4”]don’t know why yours can’t get close to that, if you want to go deeper than that i would seriously consider getting a bandsaw

Thanks for the sugggestions. FYI the oliver is a 1942 model with a direct drive motor and the diameter of the motor and thickness of the table decreases the usable size of the blade. Carlow, hope you’ve avoided the floods and typhoon (tends to make iron rusty). It’s an honor to speak with someone down under—would love to visit there someday…JMc.

I might have a few used blades that are in excellent condition. 14” blades that will fit your machine. What is the arbor size?

JMc, I did a little digging around in the blade section and have found a couple of 14” blades. I know there are more. They are stored in an area that , right now, is a little difficult to get to. I have approximately 350 different blades. The blades I have found are in excellent condition with lots of carbide. One has I believe 100 teeth or more for fine cutting.

The 14” blades I have found so far have 30mm bore. I think there are a few that have a 1” bore. I will keep looking.

Also, I think MedicKen also whats a couple for his machine.

John, I’m checking with my sharpening guy this week to see if he has or can fashion a blade for me. If you find something in your stash, I’d still be interested. Thanks.

Carlow, glad you missed the big storms—enjoy the green backyard! We also dodged the bullet with the big snowstorm—by about a hundred miles, but have had a cold, cloudy winter with several small snows—good for days in the workshop. Superbowl? Not every Yank is a football fan—just a quiet Sunday evening at home. But earlier we did have a nice salad and steak at….Outback! JMc.

Holy jeez- 14” is a big table saw blade! I say sell that sucker to a tool collector and get yourself a good 10” saw. If you want to rip thicker wood, use a bandsaw.

With that said, I also understand where you’re coming from. You have a great old saw and I hope you find what you need!

Hey Jim, the old Oliver came from our Illinois Central Railroad Shops—a piece of local history. Band saw? Working on a 1960 model 81 Powermatic to bring her back to life, but that’s another story…JMc.

JMc,

Ask your local blade sharpener if he can get a reducer bushing for the blade. It is easy to do. You only need to make sure the bushing is held securely by using flat washers on both sides of the blade on the arbor. See if he can get them in 30mm to 1” and 1 1/4” to 1” reducing bushings. This way you can use the blades I already have and save you a lot of money.

These guys have a pretty decent selection. This is where I get most of my saw blades.
