I’d please like a list of online bandsaw blade suppliers for purchasing online, for the past few years I’ve been purchasing from a local supplier in which his blades are not holding up to per welds breaking (see this forum thread) Welds Breaking and I’m growing tired of it, I tried goggling but not having any luck.

The blades I mostly use are 1/4” 3 and 10 tpi 105” and 3/16” 14 tpi 105”

Thanks

Have you tried grizzly.com. I just ordered their 14” 30th anniversary saw and a couple of blades too. It seemed that they had a pretty good selection. I hope this helps. Good luck brother

I like Olsonsaw.net.
Kind of like a one stop blade shop.
Their prices are fair, and they ship promptly.

Highland Woodworking

Timber Wolf

And of course Rockler, Woodcraft, Sears, etc.

Do you have an odd size? My MiniMax takes an odd size, 143 1/2”, so I have to order them custom cut but my Delta takes a standard 93 1/2”

Blackie—I have had good luck with blades from Highland (see GaryL’s post), as well as Accuright blades from Carter Products ( http://www.carterproducts.com/band-saw-products/band-saw-blades ).

Out of the list given so far Grizzly are the only ones that carry a 3/16” 14tpi all others are only 10 tpi these aren’t smooth enough for what I’m looking for.

Gerry, from what I saw of Highland the best they carry in a 3/16” is only a 4 tpi I need a 14 tpi unless I’m missing something?

Randy, I acquired my wonderful premium Timberwolf blades direct from the manufacturer at a somewhat reduced price over other mail order suppliers, Suffolf Machinery Corp. 1-800-234-7297. URL, Suffolkmachine.com. They shipped the same day as I recall. Use of them made all the difference in the world in my band saws’s cutting; along with setting the bottom of the teeth gullet on the crown of the wheel’s tire, as the Carter video instructs, regardless of what your manual’s instruction say. Cuts are TRUE, no drift.

Russell, are you saying that they can do custom orders such as 3/16” in a 14 tpi? As so far from what I saw that they offer in a 3/16 is only a 10 tpi.

All of my settings are done via Alex Snogress hence (carter)

a quick google search leads me to believe that you’ll either have to step down to a 1/8” blade, up to a 1/4” blade, or have one custom made in 3/16” in order to get the 14tpi you’re looking for

Randy, I don’t know, as I ordered standard blades of 80” for my old 12” Craftsman. But, a friend has gotton his 1051/2” blades for his Grizzly from them I think. Their customer service was very helpful, give ‘em a call.

I solder up my own from coil stock. I save a lot of money
doing it that way.

Here’s a great deal on 3/16” coil:
