Topic tags/keywords: band saw 10in mcgraw-edison model-t6760 16 type-a bandsaw

I am looking for blades for a 10” inch Band Saw that I got at a yard sale a long time ago. I looked the company up and the only thing I can find on McGraw-Edison is…...............light bulbs. I did come across someone else looking for blades for the same make and model but I didn’t see any helpful information on they’re post it fix it. So that being said I am sure there is someone in here that knows how to help me. Thanks in advance.:)

Unless there is something special about the blade for your saw any brand blade will work if it is the proper length. Several of the big name woodworking supply stores (internet) also will make whatever size blade you need.

There is a local place here that makes bandsaw blades any size you want if you can’t find one you need, you just tell then the size and how many tpi you want and in a couple days it’s done. Rideout tool and machine is the name of the place, I’m sure if you google custom band saw blades you can probably find somewhere closer to you, hope you find something.

If you can measure the blade, you may be able to purchase by its length.

Lots of people have already suggested having them made, I would only add that when I used to do that I had a welder friend who did his own for his medal cutting blades he could also do mine. I would run the adjustment out to use the longest blade possible, then if I had a premature break and the blade was still sharp we would shorten it an inch or so reweld adjust for the shorter blade and get more use from the same blade.

Robin, I get all mine made up because I have a riser kit installed making a non standard length. Never had a problem but I do get the higher quality blades.
