Works just as expected. This blade REALLY cuts like butter. Thin kerf is where it's at!
It's fantastic when you purchase a product and it does exactly what you want it to. This blade outperforms all other blades I have purchased in the past and is my main go-to blade for the majority of my cuts. Coupled with the carter stabilizer guide it's amazingly smooth.
WORKED PERFECT FOR CUTTING 4IN OAK BLOCKS FOR BANDSAW BOXES
I went through a couple of 1/8in 14tpi blades trying to cut letters from thick wood. This 3/16 4tpi blade just cuts through them like butter and can still turn on a dime.
I was a little apprahensive about buying a expensive band saw blade. At least more expensive than I usually bought. It turns out it was a great value. Stays sharp and runs true. The last one I bought lasted 3 times longer than average blades.
So I just bought a new Grizzly G0555LX and was initially delighted with the saw. After just a few cuts with the supplied 3/8” blade became somewhat disappointed. Not knowing if it was me the operator or the saw. After seeing the reviews of the saw (all being good) thought it was me. But in a few of the saw reviews they stated that the blade supplied with the saw was of lesser quality. With that in mind I searched the internet for blade reviews. The timber wolf blade came up as the most praised. In fact I only found one bad review. So I decided to give the blade a go. Purchasing 2 blades a 1/2” and a 3/16” as I wanted to make a band saw box. And as my first band saw box it had a couple of 1/2” diameter cuts to be made through 2-1/2” burr oak. Without looking into things close enough I cut those cuts with the 3/16” blade then looked up what the blade was rated to cut. Turns out it was rated to cut a 3/8” Radious or 3/4” diameter cut furthermore I also used the same blade to cut the straight cuts of the drawer to the project and found it to cut with no drift and as straight as could be. As for the 1/2” blade I only used it for the initial cutting off of the back but it cut flawlessly. So it’s only been the one project so far but I now love my saw and saw blades. By the way when I started the project I made a mistake and cut off the back of the box before I cut the profile. So after I glued the back back on I then had to cut the profile again and to my surprise found I could follow the initial profile as close as 1/32” without nicking the previously cut portion of the box. Again love the blade thank you so very much for such a wonderful blade I would never even imagined that there would be such a difference in blades. I will be buying more hopefully not replacements to soon just additional sizes and tooth patterns.
I have used other blades with the same specs and the cuts were almost perfectly smooth. These blades add another step to making something.
My 2nd band saw is an old Ryobi 10" I still use for small scroll work an I need a unique size blade (67"). Timber Wolf blades come sized to order and are the best and only blades I use. Even using these small blades I have never broken one yet. You can't go wrong. ps. Kens got a point, always release the blade tension when not in use.
I am new to bandsaws. Never had one. I finally got a 10" Jet, not the best, but faster than a coping saw, and bought a Timber Wolf 3/16 blade for small radii. It worked great. No effort at all, just move the wood around. I cut 3 violin necks out of 2" hardwood. A piece of cake. But I changed back to the original blade for straight cuts, and had to increase the tension. Forgot to reduce it when I changed back to the 3/16. It still worked. But I forgot to release my tension, and a month later when I went to use it, the blade promptly snapped. My fault. I bought 2 more of the 3/16, and a 1/2" one for straight cuts, and now I have learned my lesson.
