Timber Wolf makes the world's only thin-kerf, low tension, silicon steel bandsaw blades that will outlast your old carbon steel blades by a mile! Your bandsaw will cut better and faster, with less wear on bearings, shafts and tires. Tooth angles and gullet symmetries, combined with a unique set pattern, create a blade that is everything a wood cutting blade was meant to be. Blade has over 60% of the speed capabilities of a hook blade while giving you the great finish of a skip. The round design of the gullet eliminates any work hardening zones. Couple that with the 6.5° rake angle, 5-tooth set pattern and .025" thick thin-kerf blade and you have an excellent bandsaw blade!

Wobbles and too short
The blade is only 110 3/4" long and doesn't mount easily on my saw, which has a quick release cam mechanism to raise and lower the upper wheel. With coil spring totally loose, it's already tensioned up when engaging the quick release cam lever. Also, the weld was uneven so the blade flopped around and I spent forever playing with my saw's upper and lower wheels suspecting it was my saw. Other blades didn't wobble, and I found it was this blade. Also bad experience with the 111" x 1/4" blade.
Bad welding process makes blades wobble
1) The blade wobbled badly toward and away from the woodworker during the cut, in the area around the weld. Consequently, the blade bites into the cut then backs away, then bites again, on each revolution of the blade. The cutting process feels like an impact wrench, not a nice continuous cutting. My band saw is adjusted properly (Rikon 10-325). I spent hours trying to re-adjust, thinking it was the saw, not until later checking and researching and realizing it was the blade that has the defect. The stock blade and my new WoodSlicer blade don't do this wobbling nearly as bad. 2) Also, the blade was 1/4-inch too long and so I couldn't back off the tension enough to get to flutter mode. I hear these blades wobble due to the welding process used by the manufacturer. If the problem isn't confined to the useless blade I purchased, buyer beware.
