Hi guys
I have a 12’’ craftsman band-saw that uses 80’’ blades and I am sick and tired of using thous cheap band saw blades from the home depot! So can you tell me what you use and like? I want about a 3/8’ wide and maybe 3 TPI Blade. I have two band saws so i keep a larger blade on one and a smaller on the other.
thanks for the help!

I recently bought an Olson blade for my Craftsman after using one on my JET BS for the past couple of years with no problems , unlike the 3 previous Timberwolves that I had tried with no luck at all.
WoodCraft was my supplier for the Olsons.
