The best portable sawmill in world is worth nothing if it’s not equipped with a good, sharp blade. 

To start to understand band blades, it’s important first to first understand their anatomy.

Band sawmill blades are set “raker style” – in other words, one blade is set (bent) left, one set (bent) right and the third is the raker blade and is straight up.

 When it comes to band blades, you need to be concerned about the following three things to get the most out of your sawmill:

  1. The kind of blades you use
  2. The way you maintain your blades
  3. The quality of the sawmill blade sharpener you use
