A Personal Blade Buyer's Guide

Comments (0)

This article is from Issue 86 of Woodcraft Magazine.

In order to gauge the trial performance and longevity of a new bandsaw blade, I cut the relevant info (type, make, etc.) from the product box, and affix it to the column of my bandsaw with a strong rare-earth magnet. That way, when I notice that a blade cuts exceptionally well, gives me problems, or seems to dull prematurely, I can quickly note the manufacturer, as well as blade characteristics. (When switching out blades, it’s easy enough to switch out the product label at the same time.) It’s a great way to inform future blade purchases.
