It is important to think about why you need the bandsaw. Most complaints we get are related to using a bandsaw for the wrong purpose or trying to cut beyond the saws capacity. Size, power of the motor are critical, you do get what you pay for when it comes to Bandsaws. Also sharp blades are essential!
Replacement band saw blades for both the F28-182 and F28-182A are 1400mm in length and we can supply these at competitive prices. The replacement blades we like to sell are British made to order, so flexibility in size and number of teeth is possible. Several of our customers use their F28/182/F28-182A bandsaw to cut non ferrous metal (fairly small sections) and we have supplied them with bandsaw blades with 14tpi.
Remember the higher the number TPI ( teeth per inch) the finer the cut. 3/4 TPI used for general ripping, 6tpi general use and 8 and above for finer more accurate cutting. The thiner the blade (front to back) dimension, the greater the ability to cut shapes. the deeper the blade, the more accurate the straight cuts will be.
