I have an old parks band-saw & it uses 133” blades.
Was wondering what brand of blades to use,that don’t cost a fortune.
Want to use it for re-saw & making band-saw boxes.
Thanks for any input.

I like my woodslicer from Highlandhardware. You’d have to check the lengths to see, but I am pretty sure you could get one that length. Great for resaw. Probably not so much for bandsaw boxes

Mine have not came in yet and I haven’t got to use my bandsaw yet but I just ordered a 1/2” woodslicer from Highland for resawing and a 1/8” Timberwold from Grizzly for bandsaw boxes and curved cutting. I will probably order a 1/4” Timberwold if I like them. Wood Slicer only makes resaw blades from what I can tell. Thats why I had to get two different brands but from what everything I have read, these are two of the best. The Wood slicer was about $40 that includes shipping and the timerwolf was about $30 including shipping.

Hope that ya don’t have probs with that 1/8” blade. Mighty thin, and will flex quite a bit. I use 1/4” mostly for curved work.
