Shop Diamond Bandsaw Blades
These blades are the best, cleanest and fastest cutting band saw blades I have used in 40 years of woodworking and I have tried them all!
The Xtra-duty cuts a little cleaner than the normal 0.025" blade but because it is almost 50% thicker there is more stress in the weld when it turns around the wheel with each pass. This means two things to potential purchasers:
1. If your blade length is less than 90 inches perhaps you should go with the "normal" 0.025" thickness in the stead of the Xtra-duty 0.032".
2. After two or three months of heavy use I will normally replace my blade because it breaks. The extraordinary quality of cut easily out weighs the occasional broken blade.
