I have been researching bandsaw blades for my new Grizzly G0513X2F.(Pictures when it arrives) It seems like every thread I find on the subject is at least 2 years old. Most are over 5 years old. Many of the older ones sing the praises of Timberwolf blades, while the "newer" ones like other brands such as Lenox or Woodslicer, saying that Timberwolf is not as good.
This got me to thinking that maybe we need a new thread that re-visits the subject.
I am looking for a good blade source where I can get both a set of general purpose blades as well as a good resaw blade from the same supplier. I am looking for blades that work well for kiln dried lumber used for furniture projects. I am not a turner, so cutting bowl blanks and the like is NOT a requirement. I want to do curved work, but nothing real tight. I also want to get into veneer work so a good blade for resawing thin stock if pretty important to me. I am a hobbyist that doesn't work in the shop every day, so I am thinking that a carbon tipped blade might be a bit of overkill for me.
I am experiencing information overload, and am quite confused about which way to go for bandsaw blades. One minute I think I will just call Suffolk Machinery and let them recommend which ones to get, and the next minute I think I will try to figure it out myself.
I have about decided I want to get a 1/4 6tpi, 3/8 4tpi, and a 3/4 resaw blade (but which one???). But I really don't know. Maybe I just need to jump in and see what happens. I can always buy something else if I don't like what I get first.
What to do! What to do!
