Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw blade

Hey all, I ordered 2 bandsaw blades from supercut bandsaws and i told them the wrong length, i realize that it is completly my fault, i ordered 72 1/2” and needed 70 1/2” is it viable that they will be able to cut the extra 2 inches out and reweld them at a minimal cost? or am i just out th 30 bucks? also does any bandsaw take a 72 1/2” blade? could i potentially sell them on craigslist to recoupe some cost?

Why not call them and ask? It is practical to cut and re-weld the blades.

Check around locally for an industrial supply house. They may be able to cut it and re-weld it at a reasonable cost and save the shipping.

Just called them and they said all i need to do is send it back to them, and since it’s a shorter blade it will need to be a different thickness but they will exchange it at no cost…I’m not sure about you all but they just made a lifetime customer out of me. thanks for the help guys.

Sounds like a place to remember if and when I get a bandsaw.

I may be mistaken, but doesn’t Harbor Freight sell those blades? The packaging looks very much like the ones sold by HF.
