After a recommendation from Edwin Pawlowski to buy blades direct from
Suffolf, and taking advantage of their advice, I would like to order some
blades for my new BS. It's a 14" 1hp saw with a riser, and I would like to
be able to do a variety of things from detail work to resawing my owm wood.
I know the Suffolk guys will have suggestions, but would like to hear from
the guys out in the "real world" on what you find you like and what you
I have a Jet 14" with riser and use the Timberwolf blades, bought direct
from their recommendations. I haven't done any resawing for a project,
just some testing and the 3/4 blade they recommended appears to be
wonderful. I also bought an 1/8" blade and that is as good, if not
better than the scroll saw I have. I am going to call and get them to
recommend a 1/4 or 3/8 blade for general use, the stock blade is nowhere
as good as either of these blades. I tend to leave either of the TW
blades in when I really should have the 1/4.
I called today and gave them my list of things to cut, and they recommended
four blades from 3/16" to 3/4" and deliverd to me it will be $76.20. Should
be here by Friday or Monday, and provided my riser block gets here, I should
be making sawdust this weekend hopefully. Thanks to all for their help.
Do yourself a favor and check the size requirement of your saw.
Depending on tooth pitch you will get something slightly longer or
shorter to make weld giving proper tooth gap.
My saw takes 150" according to manufacturer. Sure does but it doesn't
take 149.75 which was shipped and should have worked.
Take your current blade pre-riser and look to see where it is in the
adjustment range of saw. Then lay a tape measure on floor (carpet in
house works best) and line up weld at end of tape and walk it (band)
to where weld comes around. Now you know what size you are using for
sure, can plan any adjustment to stock size. Now add 2x riser for new
Have fun, be safe, keep doors closed. DAMHIKT

Digger, with all respect to Wes, you can just call Sufold, tell them
exactly what machine you have and they can tell yuo what you need.

about our own bandsaw. I asked and was super pleased! Trust them; they
