Starrett Duratec Bandsaw Blades
« on: October 08, 2019, 02:03 PM »
Can anyone comment on the Starrett Duratec blades. I see that Woodpeckers has 3 packs of blades to fit popular saws on clearance and they have 111" blades which fit my Rikon 10-325 for $49.

But my thinking is if by Woodpeckers product description they are so good why do they have to clear them out at 30% off the original price. Must not be selling.

Never used any Starrett wood bandsaw blades but I have used their hacksaw blades and Porta-band blades and also for the Marvel vertical bandsaws and as I remember they gave us no problems.

For what it is worth, a buddy had/has Starretts on his bandsaw and has never said anything negative about them.

Maybe they don't sell because some might think of Starrett as a machinist tool brand and not a blade manufacturer ?

I have the Starrett 1/2” wide, 4 tooth hook blade in my Delta. I’m way impressed...it seems to be sharper and last longer than the Timber Wolf & Olson blades I’ve always used. It’s been working for the last 9 months or so.

Thanks for the link, I’m picking up a 3-pack for the Delta.  🙏🙏  [big grin]

Thanks for your replies. I guess I'll give them a try at that price.

Very happy with Starrett blades from Itura Design, but Duratec doesn't ring a bell. They may have different lines.

As others have said, they are invisible on the web, but they have a great catalog, good prices, and superb customer support. Call, don't e-mail -- they are nice people to talk to  :)
