Kasco Blades
« on: June 24, 2015, 06:41:18 PM »
Hello All,
 To those who are running Kasco blades, how are they doing for you? I have thought about trying them the next time I need to order more. How are they at the weld? Are any of you resharpening your own? Are they close to WM profile?
Thanks much

I have been using them for over a year and have them resharped 3 times and they are the beat by far.

Fantastic! ;D ;D

Zero issues. Best cut out of the box for the blades that I have used.

Resharps have performed good also.

I've been using them for over a year now and I've been very happy with them.  None have broken at the weld.  Go to their website for pricing.

I got a couple free blades to try out, and after about 2 hours of cutting, I went inside and ordered a 15 pack. I love them. Get a hold of Derek at Kasco. If you want his email and phone number just send me a pm and I will send it to you.

I order 3 boxes of 15 blades (45) and got free shipping. Should be good on blades for awhile.

I email them for a quote. Just waiting on them to contact me back. I'm in need of blades now. Down to my last one.

Are you all resharpening your own, or do they offer a resharp service? Is the profile close to WM. I've been using WM blades and sharpening my own, wondering if what I have will work on Kasco blades.

Thanks for the input!

Not sure about the profile matching up exactly the same, but the Kasco bands work just like everyone has described, and they sharpen quite well, all around pretty hard blade to beat in my opinion, price and performance.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Jake and Allen,

Which Kasco baldes are you running on your EZs?    I have been slicing with Timberwolf .029 set .045 for two years now on pine and a few hardwood logs (not fun) and I would'nt mind trying something different.

I'm using 1╝x.042,  10 degree and 7/8 gullet. I don't know what the set is on them, but it sure seems like it's way less than the Timberwolf.
There is rumor that the EZ Jr, will pull itself into the log due to the angle of how the blade rides. I haven't noticed it on pine or box elder, but was sawing some apple for someone and with these blades it will.

Yeah...that was the not fun part on my last post...with beech wood the saw will pull from my hand and take off down the log and almost stall out!  I have to hold it back, and the boards get full of teeth marks.  I'm going to try 7 degree on my next load of beech.

My plan is to get a few blades of different angles to have on hand just for the hard stuff because I can surely see where it could be a problem. I saw pretty much only pine, juniper and box elder burls and the 10s work great.

Just got off the phone with them. $13.50 per blade. Order a box of 15 with a 7 drg angle. Going to take about two weeks to get them. None for my size.

That is quite a good price. I know it will a bit more in the north here, but that is almost a disposable price compared to what I am paying now.

I am using the same as Alan. I'm not sure of the set either. I get my new blades at 10 degrees and my sharpener is set somewhere around 8 degrees. I use new blades for pine and cedar and resharps for hardwood.
