Hello neighbor. After my earlier post I got to thinking. That was about 3-4 years ago that a friend got one there. It broke at the weld, he took it back and they re-welded it in a matter of minutes. I am looking to get a band saw, so I have been kind of keeping up with band saw and blade posts. I have even looking around on E-Bay at brands and prices.

sawedfingers and Jerry,
Why don’t you guys drive on up here to Doniphan, MO. ( about 20 min. from Corning) and take a look at the Unisaw I have for sale? I know that you will want to buy if you check it out. Just reduced the price to $650.

I’ve been making my own from coil stock.

I learned the process from this article: http://www.shakerovalbox.com/finished/BandSawBlades.pdf

It beats the heck out of buying them pre-made, I make up 5-6 at a time for about $10 a blade (142”).

I had a run of a few new pre-made blades that were welded with a bump on the back that would hammer my thrust bearings so I took the time learn how to make my own.

Good luck.

sawedfingers,
All I can say is I’m happy to see you’re still doing woodworking. Sound like another reason a person should consider a Sawstop. I bought a Grizzly 1023RL four months ago and if I could do it all over again, I’d spend the extra and get a Sawstop. Next time you go to Doniphan, send me a PM and we will get together.
