    Where to get large band saw blade - Southern California

    Anyone have a good reliable source for large band saw blades in SoCal?
    Or is online better?
    In case it matters to your answer the blade will be 18' long, for resawing.

    thanks, Mark

    I order 20' blades from Strata Forest Products in El Cajon, CA. 619 449-9663
    The blades come from the LA area. Strata also has 3 locations in the LA area.
    Santa Ana 714 751-0800.

    There are 2 dimensions that make a difference. Your term of large just means long? Any place can make what ever length you want, it's just that someplaces it means a custom order. If you also want a wide blade, go to places that sell sawmill blades.

    These guys have a good selection of Resaw blades except the laguna blades. They carried the Lenox woodmaster 1.3 and 2 th. Kairos is the name. They will make up a blade while you wait. https://kairostooling.com/

    I can only find 1/2" and 3/8" 4tpi blades there. Am I missing a secret handshake?

    I donít remember them having a online store. They are a saw service they sharpen most anything.
    If your looking for a particular blade you gotta call them.
    They make very nice welds too.
    Good Luck

    Yea, they got pages and pages of circular saws on their online store.. sharpening services, and one bandsaw blade. Seems an odd thing to miss

    'Long blades' ...at some point equals how much of 'that' do we have in stock.

    It's sold, at least in reasonable sizes, in 100 foot spools.

    A couple of sizes ... whatever's left, 1/4 to 1/2" ... at what's now my brother's shop. Primarily metal work, but just requires ... seems like a good idea... a major feed rate reduction for wood ... otherwise loading up the teeth... which magically starts creating curves where none were desired...

    'Spectrum Supply' pop's in my head ...

    If that doesn't come up ...bury me in 'abuse' until I dig thru 10 or 15 yo email to figure out where I sourced them, and what I got for ????

    I've got a couple Bi-metal blades from them ... maybe the wide carbide resaw blade .. .

    Richard, you're right, I ought to have said I'm looking for a re-saw blade about 30mm wide.
    Thanks Andrew, I'll call Kairos Tooling tomorrow.
    Industrial Blade in Santa Ana has also been suggested, but that's a longer drive into the Orange Crush traffic!
    I'll let you know how it goes.

    I have purchased several Lenox resaw blades including a Woodmaster CT 1.3 TPI from Industrial Blade in Santa Ana. The Woodmaster is either 27 or 54mm wide.
