    Sorry Dave, I agree with Tony Foale, Cheap blades are false economy unless your cutting wood.

    Cheap blades do not even work with wood
    At one time in life I have the best and the lowest cost some how the price per cut was the same.
    At one time in life I would purchase over 300 tons a year in steel. I had lot steel to find the right blade.
    This looks so good for cutting cost. I may try a better blade for the band saw.
