We have many combinations of blade widths and pitch from the smooth cutting raker tooth to the efficient skip tooth and the aggressive hook tooth styles. Top quality saw steel manufactured to precise tolerances and guaranteed welds result in very smooth cutting blades. Blades are sized to fit Grizzly bandsaws as well as many other brands. Just match up the length in the charts with the recommended length for your bandsaw. If you need more information to help match blade cutting characteristics with your particular applications, just call our friendly service technicians.

Blade Selection: Selecting the right blade for the cutting task requires knowledge about blade characteristics and cutting priorities (i.e. speed, finish, etc.).

  • Blade Length: Measured by the blade circumference, blade lengths are specific to each bandsaw. They are determined by the wheel diameter and distance between the wheels.
  • Blade Width: Measured from the back of the blade to the tip of the blade tooth (the widest point). Blade width determines the largest and smallest curve that can be cut, and contributes to the accuracy of cutting straight—generally the wider the blade, the straighter it will cut.

Tooth Set: Two common tooth sets for wood bandsaw blades are alternate and raker. Each type of tooth set removes material in a different manner, leaving cuts with different characteristics.

  • Alternate: An all-purpose arrangement where the teeth are bent evenly left and right of the blade.
  • Raker: Three teeth in a recurring group—one bent left, one bent right, and one that is not bent. The raker set is ideal for most contour cuts.

Tooth Type: The most common tooth types for wood blades are:

  • Standard (or Raker): Equally spaced teeth set at a “0” rake angle. Recommended for thinner workpieces and general use.
  • Hook (or Claw): Wide gullets (round or flat), equally spaced teeth, positive rake angle, and fast cut with good surface finish.
  • Skip (or Skip Tooth): Wide, flat gullets, a "0" rake angle, equally spaced teeth, and recommended for thick wood cutting.

Arrived upright and well packaged. No external damage. It's HEAVY, have a few friends ready to help. Purchased it with the shop fox mobile base and honestly I am not a as happy with the marriage between these two units. Would have liked a different base. The base interferes with the door in such a way as to make blade changes tough. The saw is incredible. Very easy to use. Set up is a little tricky at first. The instructions aren't the greatest but I've been spoiled with other machines. Once you get it all together it makes good sense. Checked the angles on the fence and between the blade and base. Found them to be very accurate once the blade was in tension. The guides take a little getting use to but all work very well. Overall I love this machine and at this price it is absolutely worth it!
