First off, a Happy New Year to my fellow Lumberjocks! May 2014 be a year of peace, prosperity, health and many successful projects for us all.
The annual Woodworking Show will be here in Baltimore this weekend and I am very much looking forward to it. Among the items I’ll be shopping for are blades for my 14” Rikon bandsaw. It uses 111” blades and I have been using 3/8” wide, 3 or 4 tpi blades as my primary use is cutting bowl blanks from green wood and also some resawing. My primary supplier has been Timberwolf and I’ve been very satisfied with their performance, but both they and Carter will be available at the show. I know Carter Products has a great name, but has anyone used their blades? If you have used both brands and have feedback, that would be even better.
Thanks again to all for the great knowledge and sharing this site provides. I look forward to another year of inspiration from all of you.
