  • 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

                  Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                  Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                  Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
