Topic tags/keywords: blade bad product tip bandsaw

i have tried a number of bandsaw blades, since begining my wood working addiction. while i have had simple problems, such as sloppy cuts, or easy warping of blade, i have never had a blade break on me. i recently purchased a blade from my local woodworkers network shop. the blade is made by a company called SuperCut. the thing that made me happy about buying this blade was the stamp that says “Made In U.S.A.”. which i try to buy just about everything from this country. but when i started to take the blade out of the blister pack, and removing the two zipties that hold it in a triple coil, i realized that the ziptie was holding the blade together where it had broken. i didnt really think anything of it, other than the fact that bad luck hits everyone once in a while. the great people at the woodworkers network had no qualms with letting me return it, and get a replacement. however, i took the new blade home, and made 5 cuts, and it snapped. it isnt because i tightened the tensioner too much or not enough, i have been using the same delta 7” band saw for a long time, with many different blades, and am quite familiar. it isnt because i was trying to cut a piece of wood that was too thick, (only 1 1/2” thick). it is because this company clearly makes an inferior product, and should not be bought by anybody. just thought you should know, before you go and buy a SuperCut blade without knowing what a low quality product it is. and it isnt even any cheaper than a run of the mill blade. haha, run of the mill. kinda funny little joke there.
