What bandsaw blade?
« on: March 21, 2020, 08:36:57 pm »
I have an older Rockwell 14Ē bandsaw from the 1970ís. It takes a 93 1/2Ē blade. Iím looking for recommendations on the best blade size (1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2) and TPI count, and tooth set for roughing out Osage staves. And best places to find respectable quality and reasonable priced blades.

If you don't have any questions you must not be paying attention.

I use a 1/2Ē blade with a 2Ē 3-4 TPI, and a hook tooth. A hook tooth isnít necessary, but itís nice because itís more aggressive.
