  • Band Saw blade length

    How critical is the length of a band saw blade? My saw calls for a 99 1/4 inch blade and I was supplied a 99 3/4 inch blade. Will I be able to get the proper tension with the additional 1/2 inch?

    As long as your tensioner has the necessary thread length to get the correct tension, the length is unimportant.

      I suspect you will be fine. Extra 1/2" in length will only be 1/4" more of adjustment.

        I agree, you have a 99% probability of it fitting.
