Hello all. I’ve got a Grizzley 1073 16″ bandsaw and I just broke the blade that came with it. I’m looking to replace the blade but I want to order several (to save on shipping) and I don’t know what to order.
I know the length is 113″ and the width was 3/8″ and I used that blade for general cutting (including a little resawing). Once I looked to replace it I got lost/confused in all the other specifications for bandsaw blades (number of teeth, rake), etc.
Can anyone suggest a set of 3 blades for curve cutting/detail work, general work, and resawing? I’m thinking width 1/8″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ to 3/4″. Can you guys suggest the other specs (teeth, etc.)? Also, any suggestions on brand – Suffolk Machinery low tension blades look interesting)?
Oh, mostly I’m cutting walnut with the occasional pieces of maple and pine.
Thanks in advance.
