Title: How long to get new blades?
Post by: Patrick NC on September 13, 2021, 06:10:34 PM
I ordered 20 ripper 37 blades from Jerrys Resharp on Wednesday.  They got here today. I thought that was pretty good turnaround. How long is it taking to get blades from other suppliers?

I ordered 60 T7s from Woodmizer not to long ago. I was told 8 weeks, but they showed up in about 4 weeks

About 1 months ago, I ordered a flat-pack of 10 blades from Wood-Mizer, they were on my porch in 2 days!

If most sawyers have gone with 7 degree blades those 10 degree blades may have been sitting on the shelf for a while.

I get ripper 37's from a supplier here in Oregon.  It's been taking a week or two from the time I order to them being on my doorstep.

10 blades have always given me good service, so why change and it doesn't really matter if they've been sitting for a while, they're still new.

Chuck White I totally agree with that mindset.
