Blade details.

88" x 1/2" x 4tpi skip flexy blades from Bandsaw Blades Direct

These blades are for wood cutting.

We also have a small stock of rather finer pitch blades that came with this tool, and have been re-welded to size. These are a useful standby, but should be used with care for resinous or plastic materials which might clog the teeth when cutting.

Replacing the blade.

Blade Tension.

There is a blade tension indicator which should be adjusted to suit the width of the blade in use.
