I've got the larger (and the smaller) Harbor Freight horizontal band saws. The smaller one is now different than any other el cheapo 4x8 horizontal. The bigger one is quite good.
The Super Cut blade for the smaller band saw is a stock item and holds up as well as any big name brand blade I have used. I don't even consider anything else for it any more. I actually have a spare on the wall behind the saw.
A week or two ago I was in the local HF import store and saw they had 93 inch (93-1/2) blades in stock. I was excited. No more having to order blades and waiting for somebody to cut and weld it, or ordering blades off eBay and hoping they did a better than average job at the blade welder. Sure I might decide I still want Lennox M42 blades, but I wouldn't have to keep a spare on hand all the time any more. Just pick up a cheap blade locally and be good to go while waiting for a better quality blade to arrive.
Well, a couple days ago my blade broke. It was pretty worn (dull), and it gave hints of breaking (ba-bump, ba-bump, ba-bump) days before it actually separated. Just to make sure I took a quick look at the saw where I had written the correct blade size with a paint marker. 93-1/4 (okay I can adjust that much) x 3/4.
Yeah, NOPE! All the 93-1/2 stock blades at harbor freight are 1/2 inch wide, and unlike a vertical bandsaw you cant adjust a horizontal for a narrower blade. CRAP!
Atleast, I still have the smaller saw. Now to figure out how to swing a12' piece of stock around so I can cut it on the 6' roller table (end butted up to the wall) its mounted on.
