  • Custom size blades

    For wood that is not so intricate, on very hard wood, It is often more convenient to use a band saw on some part of the project.

    My 10" band saw (Ryobi SB1001SV) uses 67" blades. Standard 1/4" to 1/2" are easy to fing but I just can't find the 1/8" ones. I could order the Timber Wolf ones from the U.S. but with the currency exchange on parts and shipping +extra shipping fees because it is outside U.S. + custom fees, it add-up quite a bit.

    1/8" is availble in many lenght but not in 67" (or so rearely that I can't find it).

    Anyone knows where to get custom lenght blades in Canada?

      I found a great site for band saw blades in Canada

      Thanks wood-n-things.
      I went on the site you told about but seem not to have band saw blades. I continued my investigation to find out a real great canadian site:
      http://www.tufftooth.com/

      They carry the complete line of Olsen's scroll saw blades as well and othe nice stuff.

        There is a local shop here in Chilliwack that welds custom sized blades.
        I am sure many cities have them, Try looking under tools and tool repair in the yellow pages.
        Also try blade sharpening services. Heck you can even get a jig that will hold the blades while you braze or silver solder your own, although I am not that brave
        Besides my bandsaw is non functioning.
        I think I will steal the variable speed motor for something else....maybe my thickness sander

        Speaking of which. I need a source of 8" x 25" sandpaper.
        I know I can buy 150 foot rolls but I will NEVER use that much.
        Any ideas out there.
        My thickness sander has a felt drum with two friction cams that clamp the paper.

            Thanks JT, They do carry the right stuff, I just have to get a little less that 50 yards, but I will contact them and see what they can do
