I bought this blade from the old Woodcraft saw blades. Now under new management and new name.
The blade is 1".
The bandsaw is 18".
I'll have to measure the thickness.
It was a startle, but not in a 'soiling' kind of way. Maybe my startle factor is subdued compared to others.
When it broke, I knew immediately what had happened. The blade had been clicking the last couple of uses. I did inspect the blade before starting to prep some turning stock but didn't find the source of clicking. In the future when I hear that sound I'll check the weld more specifically.
Outside of 3-4 kinks, I have 113" of scratch stocks and scrapers. In fact, my thought was parting tools. I use a modified 1" hacksaw blade currently. I just have to figure out, where/how to store the broken blade.
