For my newly acquired 14 inch bandsaw, I am thinking 1/4” 4TPI Timberwolf. Your thoughts?

I’d choose 3/8”. 1/4” blades can be a little too wiley to
execute straight cuts for joinery.

I’d think about selling a neighbor kid south to Rio so I could affors more and different blades.

These 1/4 and smaller blade are great for tight curves and band saw box cuts and they even work greater with the Carter stabilizer. But for re-saw work you’ll need the 1/2 blade which cut wonderfully on hardwoods, do not buy anything wider for your 14 inch saw. This info comes directly from the folks at timber wolf…enjoy your new saw…BC
