Here I am, Russ, Sir!
I am buying my blades from Portland Saw. 503 236 8191
I can't brag about their quality as compared to another brand, because all I
have ever used is the
MADE to order blades from Portland Saw.
I also can not talk to their pricing because it may be different if you were
to require shipping a real long
distance away, but for my buddy Carl Asch and myself, if we purchase 3 or
more at a time and
pay by credit card, the UPS shipping charges are free. The box of blades
comes the next day if ordered before noon.
Again, I can not tell you what they may do for long distance shipments,.
For 4 years I bought 1" 4tpi for a monster old meat saw.
Because the depth of cut was under 11", I
recently purchased a Grizz 20" bandsaw and I really think highly of it.
The blade that comes with the saw is not intended for serious use, so I
pitched it and bought some .5" 4tpi blades and I am still on the first one
and that is many blanks and months ago.
(earlier on in a post somebody mentioned that they didn't think much of the
blade that comes with the saw. According to the factory tech, via phone,
that blade is not expected to be used for long. Frankly, I'd be impressed
if they sent their very best blade and
charged me double)
Honestly, someday I intend to try the timberwolf blades, but I get so
dazzled with their
instructions regarding tension and tuning that I start to giggle and forget
to buy the blades. <grin>
They must be superior, but I do not know.............
