IAN JOHN - TUFFSAWS
Ian produces the best bandsaw blades I have ever used. Probably because he really does understand the materials, mettalurgy, heat treatment, welding... and his customer service is proper old-school excellent. I and many others have seen average bandsaws transformed into excellent performers by fitting one of Ian’s blades. I don’t mean I own any ‘average’ bandsaws*... but if you did, one of these would be the best low-cost upgrade ever.
*My current bandsaws are an Inca 260 and a Gravesend-made Startrite 352. I have owned many before but these 2 are the best I know in their size ranges. I may be adding a small Burgess soon... nothing odd about having three.
