I just got a USA Delta 14” bandsaw on Craigslist, $200, after quickly setting the guides per the bandsaw book by Bird it run smooth and tracked straight (set a nickle on the table and it stood up for quite awhile)
I am installing a riser block, it came with a carter high tension spring. Also He said it had a Woodslicer blade, it cut a 5 1/2” piece of 1/4 sawn white oak with ease but the cut had alot of ridges, not real deep , I could live with them.
After I add the riser I need longer blades and if the carbide blade will cut better AND last longer for the $ I would invest.
Has any Jock used a Lenox 1/2” Trimaster carbide blade with this saw and would the saw tension it properly?
