Can other size blades be used on the Kawasaki 9" bandsaw besides the 59 1/2 x 1/4" blade?

Question:

On your Kawasaki 9" band saw #840254 I see it comes with a 59 1/2 x 1/4" blade for wood. Can other size blades be used on this machine such as; a 59 1/2 x 1/2" For metal cutting?

Answer:

Hello Timothy,
Sorry to advise that a 1/2" blade will not fit the unit as the wheels are only 1/4" wide. You should be able to use a 1/4" blade with 32TPI (Teeth per inch). That configuration blade is available in the marketplace. However, if you’re attempting to use this unit in a commercial environment, I would advise against it. This unit is designed for the do-it-yourselfers and not for heavy duty use.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
