Can anyone recommend decent online sellers for bandsaw blades? In particular Canadian sellers would be great but I’ll take any suggestions for sellers who will ship to Ontario Canada. I have searched several online offereings but of course would appreciate thoughts from members here with firsthand experience.

Hi,
I’ve bought on Amazon.ca from Magnate USA. Delivery was quick to New Brunswick, but I paid $20.00 for shipping…. I’ll be watching this thread to see where else I can try.

They have a good selection of bandsaw blades and they have a very good re-saw blade – the Woodslicer re-saw blade.

Suffolk Machinery that sells the Timberwolf and other blades is my preference. Good people to deal with.

I recently purchased the Kerfmaster sample pack from http://www.spectrumsupply.com/kerfmaster.aspx
The shipping was $ 30.00 to Japan! I am extremely happy with these blades!

I have been shopping around for blades for a while…. I checked out Highland Hardware but I couldn’t get a shipping quote without a credit card #,...Laters! And Bandsawblades direct wanted over $ 200.00 for shipping for a couple of blades! With prices like that I’d stick with the stellite-tipped blades I’ve been using which are a little over a $ 100.00 a pop. Suffolk Machinery has some good blades but I couldn’t get a decent cut with their Timberwolf blades.
Hope this helps.

Google “Spectrum Supply”. They’re in Cleveland, Ohio. They are an industrial bandsaw blade supplier and have good prices on Lenox, especially if you buy multiples. Get them to ship USPS, as using UPS is a disaster at the border.

Diamond blades from buyfromawoodworker.com. I use the 3/32” 3/8” 3tpi and it works great for me. I resawed 7” wide walnut and it turned out beautiful. Inexpensive too.

Highland Woodworking web site says they ship to Canada.
What I like about the Highland web site is you get more than just “stuff”. Thier web site has a lot of good info about the products, safety tips and specific user info. More information than they had to list just to make a sale…....................

Talk to Lou Iturra @Iturra Design, great guy, he carries BS in anything from carbide to their 3-4 variable tooth specialty (thinner) blades and everything in-between. 904-642-2802. His pricing for the quality is another thing that’s hard to beat, especially for carbide BS blades.

Their shipping is super-quick as well.

+1 for Highland Woodworking. They’re only about a 20 minute drive from me but they can ship anywhere. I buy all my bandsaw blades there and have never had an issue with any one of them. Also like douglbe, their wood slicer blade is very good for resawing. I also use their woodturner’s blade for cutting green wood and have never had a problem with it. I’ve only used that blade on green wood and not their general purpose ones though so I’m not really sure how it compares.

I get my saw blades at http://sawblade.com/, I am really satisfied with the good quality of the Haltbar band saw blades as well as the customer service. For almost 6 years of using their products, I don’t have any problems with them.

Hey Surfside and Fishinbo…...how can you go through bandsaw blades if you never make any projects?

How about showing some, you know, to kind of get your shop worthy credentials validated.

As far as I can tell you are both shills for the same place.

Don’t get me wrong Dallas, I am just being honest. I know that I haven’t posted some projects yet, still working on it. I am happy to see beautiful works here to keep me getting inspired to finish one. I am a wood lover but the work in the office keeps me from finishing one.
