Tim, I'm sure no one agrees with me but I use Grizzly blades as I never
had a problem with them. I have the G1073 16" saw, 113" blades.Been
using this saw about 4 or 5 years, broke two blades so far. I sharpen
the blades with 4 teeth per inch or less, get a lot of milage out of
them. Very easy to do with a Dremel tool and chainsaw grinding wheel.
I use the 3/16" cylinder shaped wheel.
Yes, I advise any bandsawer to look into using a dremel and chainsaw
grindstone. I do the same as you to my Timberwolfs and get quite a life
out of them. One could even reset the teeth but I've never gone that far.

Olsen for day to day use. Best bang for the buck that I've found.
Highland Hardware Woodslicer for critical resaw use. Sharp and
incredibly smooth, but pricey.
(Timberwolf, IMO, is overrated and overpriced.)

I've bought a few of the industrial and Silicon blades - so far so good.
Plus good advice on blade choices and saw set up.
The owner works the trade shows in Canada on a regular basis.
I am using the King industrial bandsaw KC-1433FX - with bearing guides.
Probably a close match to your saw.
