I find the Suffolk band saw blades to be excellent. I suggest you visit
their web site at:
or give them a call, explaining your needs and they will advise what blade
would be best suited for your purpose.
I think the point needs to be made that bandsaw blades get dull long
before most people replace them. I think it's weird when the
manufacturers of "cool blocks" say they extend blade life by enabling
the blade to last longer without breaking. A blade is dull long, long
before it is so fatigued that it breaks. I'm happy to have a blade saw
well through a couple of dozen bowl blanks. If I'm sawing wood that has
high silica content, or through bark that may have silica or dirt, I
may only get a few bowl blanks before I replace the blade. They can be
sharpened, but unless it's a big, expensive blade I don't think it's
worth the time. Bandsaw blades, IMNSHO, are an expendable shop supply.
I do a lot of resawing, and the Lenox blade I have for that is just great.
It's a little more aggressive, but it cuts very well, very straight, and no
wandering. You can get more information at:
