    I don't know much about bandsaws, only that when you turn them on they are suppose to cut what you want cut. I was given an older 10 in. Shopcraft bench top saw and have used it some. I wanted to do some cutting and the blade broke. Since I have no book on it and the saw isn't made anymore I need to find out how the blades are sold. The blade from my saw measures 57 inches laid out flat, is this the size or is it when it is still together in a loop. Any help will be appreciated.

    That is the way they are sold. 57 " is what you need. You can probable get them at any of the big hardware stores. I use 95" ones.

    Or you can have them made.
    We have a store in Raleigh called Dillon supply.
    They sell all kinds of tools , welding equipment , and steel.
    I have all mine made on the spot there.
    Usually get 10 or 12 at the time. Cheaper then I can buy them already made.

    Lynne, if you are looking for real good blades that can be made to any length, look at Suffolk Machinery, Timberwolf blades. In my opinion they are the best out there. They have great customer service, a lot of times if you buy one, and are a new customer they will send a 2nd blade for free. I have ordered from them before on a Tuesday and had them in the mail on Friday.
