I just bought a metal cutting horizontal bandsaw (one of those that swivel from one end of the saw, takes a 64 inch blade and cuts by gravity feed, switching itself off when finished) from my local scrap metal yard. Spent the day welding and straightnening things, and am ready to cut stuff now. On my vertical bandsaw, I use 6 T/in blades for thick steel (1"). A friend of mine said I should use much finer teeth on the horizontal saw. Anyone got a list of recommended T/in blades for various thickness materials for these saws? What brands of saw blades hold up? Anyone tried HF bandsaw blade? Their store is really handy-close-by to me. I buy a lot of Harbor freight stuff, but I don't buy anything that requires that the alloys or heat treating be well-done for it to work. I.e. no pin wrenches, snap-ring pliers, or jewelers screwdrivers,for instance. Hence,I am wary of Harbor Freight saw blades.
