I am not planning on purchasing a new bandsaw blade just yet. My Woodslicer still has some life remaining and I’m very happy with this blade as it’s my 3rd one. With that said, its just that. It’s my 3rd one. They don’t seem to stay sharp very long when resawing a lot. I’ve used the Timber Wolf one as well and much rather prefer the Woodslicer. However, I was wondering if this Lenox Tri-Master Carbide Tipped bandsaw blade was worth its price of $99
And this “An important feature of these bandsaw blades is that the carbide teeth feature a triple chip grind (much like on many circular saw blades), meaning they have zero set, thus virtually eliminating any tendency for the teeth to drift away from your line of cut. Using the appropriate feed rate, these blades cut cleanly and leave a smooth finish.”
They can also cut metals.
So, anyone use this? Is it a good resaw blade? Is it worth its price and is it the bandsaw equivalent to a Forrest Woodworker II table saw blade? I’m just curious as this is the first time I’ve seen it.
