Been Given a Bandsaw

Recommended Posts

A friend was having a factory clearout and some time back and I was given a Sealey SM12 bandsaw, all thats needed is a bit of tender TLC a blade and I need to knock up a fence no real big deal and a couple fixings and knobs replacing. What tpi blades do you guys use, as I was thinking of getting a couple of 6tpi skip blades 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch width? Its had a good clean up and looks much more respectable , motor runs so just needs the blade - 62 inch long.







Current build Trumpeter Arizona 1:200 with White Ensign PE and a Nautilus Wooden Deck.

Built Caldercraft Convulsion, HM Brig Badger and HMS Snake.

Awaiting - Zvelda HMS Dreadnought planning to get the Pontos Deck and PE Upgrades, Panart 1:23 Gun deck model and couple of the cannon kits Manatu - French siege mortar, and American coastal cannon.

6 tpi is good for all around general cutting.  If you plan to do any resawing I would go for 4 tpi 1/2 inch if your bandsaw will take the blade.
