L. S. Starrett Band Saw Blades
L.S. Starrett has been producing band saw blades in the United States for over 100 years. Today, Starrett band saw blades are still made in the USA to the same standards that made them famous. L.S. Starrett also offers some blades in a thinner stock (.014") that really helps to reduce waste. While these Starrett blades are clearly not as durable as the standard thickness (.025") blades, we have found them to be remarkably long lasting and with normal use can be used until they wear out without breaking. We prefer the thinnner Starret blades whenever they are available in the configuration that we require. We offer here the most common configurations of Starrett blades, but as we explain on the H.K. Morse blade page, we believe that for most applications you can get away with just one blade, the 1/4" skip tooth. All of our Starret blades are available in two lengths, for a 14" Delta with and without the riser block, and of course the Asian clones that use the same blades. All of these Starret blades are also Flex-Back, meaning they are only hardened on the teeth and the actual band retains its spring steel properties for maximum durability.
