I took the old rusted bandsaw blade out of my 14" bandsaw, cut it, and
measured it at 91-7/8", so I assume that 92" is what I should be
In an internet search I can esily find 91-1/2" and 92-1/2" blades, but
not much in the way of 92".
Can I get recommendations on a good place to find a 92" blade mostly
for use in hardwoods and premium plywoods?
Thanks a lot.

Either length will work, as will your 92" idea, but the odds are good
your original blade is a slightly stretched bit of metal, so I'd go
for the 91-1/2". You should have more than enough adjustment in the
sysem to take anything you've mentioned.
I recently spent a good amount of time researching and reading
opinions on band saw blades - I picked up a used Crapsman Professional
14" for good price and knew the first thing I'd want to do is put new
blades on it (takes 91 1/2" to 93 1/2" blades). I wound up going with
the Olson All Pro, pack of 3 from Rockler was $49, a 3/16", 1/4", and
5/8". I had tried a few cuts with the old blade, knowing it was shot
but I'll tell you the Olsons cut like friggin butter. I need to resaw
some 4/4 QSWO for a clock project, and with the 5/8" resaw blade I
sliced right through a sample piece perfectly without even using a
fence or a cutline. I'm having so much fun I'm looking around my shop
for stuff to cut!
