I mill logs on my 15 inch 3 hp Jet bandsaw, and this is the best blade I've used so far. Cuts right through 13-14 inch oak. The key so far is to keep the blade clean and adjust tension according to Timber Wolf instructions. Would buy again and certainly recommend to others.
I have a Craftsman 14” band saw and have always used craftsman replacement blades because they were the only ones available in Fairbanks. When Sears closed I found PS Wood Machines and decided to give them a try. I ordered 5 blades and so far have only used the 1/2” blade. Right from the packaging I felt the blade was much more stout. After trying a few cuts on thick burl material I was astonished with the smoothness of the cut. There didn’t seem to be nearly as much flimsiness either. I hope the thinner blades perform as well as the 1/2” blade. Overall I would say this is an excellent quality blade.
Title says it all, excellent quality blade as always from pswood,the only bandsaw blades I use. Very very sharp and holds it's edge well, resaws green 6-10" oak with ease.
This is only my third Timber Wolf blade. The first was a 3/4 3 tpi which being a novice, I abused the hell out of using it in wet wood. I've resharpened that one twice (with a tapered diamond file that fits the gullet) now with very good results. I've heard of bandsaw blades breaking if not handled properly during the cut....this one took a beating and kept on ticking. As to the 1/2 3-tpi AS, I'm taking a face cut off some 6 x 12 reclaimed timbers and it has been spot on. I did adjust the wheel so the BACK of the blade centers in the cut....so there is no drift and I was much more careful to keep the feed speed reasonable. I have tried a couple blades from different companies....and think I will stick with Timber Wolf after this, they seem like very high quality, given my limited experience. Veteran '66-68
If you are going to process some green wood into spindle & bowl blanks this is the blade for you. My saw goes to 8" thick and the blade does an excellent job. Also, PS Wood stands by their weld breakage warranty. I broke a blade recently and they replaced the blade.
