This depends on the type of wood you are cutting. Hardwoods , like oak, will dull the blades faster and require a change after about 3 months if used daily 8x7 but you can get a longer cutting time IF the blades are carbide steel. You can add life to the saw teeth by keeping them clean and free of sap buildup too.
Specially when cutting pine.

Mt 18 inch horizontal band saw is not cutting square


Thicker metal shows greater blade / saw adjustment errors. A simple 1/64 or 1/32 wont show much on an 1/8 thick piece of metal when cut.
Those numbers will double quickly as the cutting blade travels through thick metal.
Metal band saws seem to be trickier to adjust and fine tune because the blade seems to be twisted into the roller guides.
The downloaded manual for the saw that looked most like mine at grizzly.com helped my adjustments a lot.
The saw quality is also a factor.

In the Market for a better Band Saw


Everybody wants to resaw, but the only saw I've seen that will do it is a resaw, they are big, powerful machines. I have an old delta 14, with an aftermarket 1 hp motor, trying to resaw is a nightmare. I don't try anymore. Jet makes a big resaw, so does grizzly, both Taiwan machines, what isn't>? But they work. If you are lucky enough to find an old bandsaw with 36 inch wheels and a ten HP motor, that would be nice, you could resaw whole cars in that thing.!I The $300 special might be worth getting and customizing to work, You would need a big blade, about 1 inch min, and a bigger motor, say 2HP min, Then hope that the tracking system will take the heavy cuts. When I have to slice something , I do it first on the table saw, cut both sides, then run it through the band saw at its max cut, 6 1/2 inches, then plow it through the planer. Always a way around this stuff. Hope this helps.

My KING KC-115C Horizontal metal cutting band saw cuts off track.


I used to work for Doall saw company. While I am not familiar with the particular model you have, I have seen issues like it in Doall saws.
Firstly, If bearing guides are not adjustable, replace them. There should be only about a 32 of an inch play between them (in addition to the thickness of the blade). Secondly, for a prodution horizontal bandsaw you should have the blade tensioned a @30,000 psi. Thirdly, if after that, you are still having problems, I would suggest checking the bearings on your drive and idler wheels for runout (in addition to the condition of the tires).

Blade Types


remember to match the blade width to the type of cutting you are doing. Also keep in mind: * Narrow Blades can make much tighter radius cuts, but tend to twist and wander when making long straight cuts. * Wide Blades can't make the tight turns that narrow ones can, but they hold a straighter line than their narrow counterparts. * The tpi determines the speed with which the blade cuts through stock. Blades with high tpi cut slower but leave a very smooth edge. They are best for detail work on thin stock. Blades with low tpi cut quickly and leave a slightly rough edge. They are great for resawing or long rip cuts. * Steel Blades are inexpensive and work well for cutting softwood. Steel blades, however, dull quickly in hardwood. * Bimetal Blades are made of high-speed steel and can cut thin metal or wood. * Carbide Blades are for wood cutting only. They are more expensive than other blades but stay sharper longer than steel or high-speed steel.

Blade width usage


Blade Width is important when purchasing a band saw. Most saws accept narrow 1/8" blades for cutting detailed designs and tight curves. Better saws also accept wider blades. Wide blades don’t flex as much as narrow ones, but they make accurate straight cuts in thick stock quicker. There are also some wide blades available that can cut metal.

Blade size


There are two common blades: Eight-Inch Table Saws are a good choice for crafts and other applications associated with thinner stock.Ten-Inch Table Saws provide the extra cutting depth needed for angled cuts in thicker stock.
