Default Need Help Finding A BS Blade

I recently broke my 1/8th in wide TW band saw blade and while I can phone Grizzly and buy a replacement, I would like to try a Wood Slicer blade. I have been looking on the wet for a place to buy one but have not been successful, would prefer to buy fro Amazon but so far no cigar.

Also, wondering if anybody thinks that the Wood Slicer might out perform the TW brand. I have no complaints about the TW.

I think that I may have run this buy the forum recently, but am not sure, whatever, I didn't get an answer.

Theo,
In the kindest way that I know how, I thank you for pointing me to that website, it may be a classical example of my ignorance, but I don't see a 1/8th Wood Slicer blade on that site. I had looked at it before I started this thead. I know that I am not the sharesnt knife in the drawer when it comes to such things so bare with me if I have missed something.

Jerry, I think the WoodSlicer blade is for re-sawing, I don't think you will find one that's 1/8"

Len,

Didn't know that, and that is why I didn't find one and since I had not found one is why I asked the question, and now I know, thanks a bunch.

Jerry don't worry that much about getting expensive BS blades as they will break too, I used to buy expensive Video recorders and when they broke down then I would spend more money on getting them fixed and all the time I was weeping, I quit doing that and I bought the cheaper ones, when they broke down then I threw them in the bin laughing, I hope you see where I am going here, someone else said that the bigger cuts should be made with a bigger saw blade and that is true, just use the small ones for the tight curves, try to not over tighten them and also try not to over heat them, still they will break as someone else said his split on the join, they can be brazed by the way if you can get them lined up straight, use the cheaper ones with care and when they break then bin them laughing, don't think that the expensive one won't break as it will, Neville

Hi Jerry
I notice that you are the second person in a couple of days that has broken a band saw blade and wants to buy a new one.
I purchased a Brazing Kit and a Butane torch from Carbi-tec some years back and repair my own band saw blades.
It is quite quick and cheap to repair blades to a professional standard.
I checked and the kit No CT-BBJ and torch No MT-790 are still on the Carbi-tec site for $39.00 each Australian plus postage.
These kits must also be available in the United States.
After your initial try you will find it easy to use with excellent results.
Cheers
John T

I like https://www.sawblade.com/ myself.
Great value and made to the length you order.
I have the 6" riser in my BS and I order blades that are 105.5"
A 105" is a little tight.

Something I've never figured out. 93.5" with out the riser and readily available.
The riser adds 6". Times 2 that should be exactly 12" more. A 105" blade is 11.5" longer than the 93.5" blade. Go figure.

Neville,
I ordered a twenty dollar band saw blade to use to copare it with the high dollar one, just want to see for myself. I have learned about heat exceeding the blades radius limitations. Sure appreciate your post to my question.
