Needed to buy some bandsaw blades for the new 14” Grizz 0555LX.
Looked on line. Freaked at some of the prices I saw.
Local company supplies the furniture and foam industry, so I went to check ‘em out.
Prices are what I paid today for 93 1/2” .025” thick blades. Have not cut with ‘em as yet, but the welds are good, are annealed, and are USA blade stock.
1/4” 6tpi.. $.61/ lf
3/8” 4tpi.. $.62/ lf
1/2” 3tpi.. $.65/ lf
Was able to buy 2 ea. of the above sizes for less than half the price of 3 same-sized blades on line, and no shipping.
Just though ya might like some price relationship.
If you’re interested, I post my findings about cut quality. Let me know.
Bill

Great info! Please do post a review about the cut quality!

I have been thinking about a carbide blade. They are several times the price but are supposed to last a LOT longer and stay sharp, which greatly reduces drift.

Good post Bill. I often wonder why folks pay the price they do for blades. Thats pretty cheap alright. Im paying .12 cents per inch on 1/4 -1/2 inch blades. Any length you want.

Have your say...
