Resource for saw blades?

I recently bought a Koil Kutter and after overcoming some problems am happily cutting my own rings. I ruined the first blade by cutting too fast and overheated the blade so I ordered 2 new blades from Dave Arens. The next blade cracked when I installed it so I'm on my 3rd blade. The Koil Kutter works well but the blades cost around $10 each from Dave so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a cheaper way to buy these blades in bulk?

I love this website and am so grateful to all you maillers who help us newbies out!

Try looking at TRL.

The blades that he sends with the Koil Kutter are very good and I end up cutting a lot of rings with them before I have to replace them. If memory serves I ordered mine from TRL, you can also get them from Enco (use-enco.com) they are called slitting saws. Enco is a little cheaper if memory serves but their shipping was higher. You can also get the transfer punches there so if you bought the metric mandrels you can order the SAE from them or vise-versa.

I love my Koil Kutter, would like a Ringinator but I can't spend the money on that right now, at least not until I get into a higher production phase, would love to have one though. (just my 2 cents...)

Becareful on the thickness and check the mandrel size it sucks have blades that don't work for your project just sittting around.

Due to minimum order size is around 25 it may help to do a group order.
Took about 7-10 for delivery.
They send Email marketing about every 3 months or so.

I second aligroen.....
Thurston is the least expensive.
http://www.thurstonmfg.com/jewelers-slotting-saws.html

Blade #322, .010", $4.85ea.
.........#323, .008", $5.50ea
.........#324, .006", $6.75ea.
and even a .004", # 325 if you want to try a really thin cut on 24awg or smaller coils, although they run a bit more, @ $11.50ea.

Not here yet but they do take a while sometimes. I'll be sure to let you know when it arrives. Smile

Yeah, and they won't even consider it late for a few days yet.

Legba, you may have already tracked this info down, but Thurston referred me to a "Brooke Company", here's their info from a search:
Brooke Cutting Tools Ltd
Denby Way
S66 8HU Rotherham, South Yorkshire
United Kingdom
Telephone: (01709)314500 Fax: (01709)314501

http://www.brooke.co.uk

The Thurston guy said they've been bought, which makes sense, because that web addy takes you to a page that's under construction, by:
Castlebrooke Tools Ltd, Sheffield, England.
telephone: +44 (0)114-261-7200
email:info@castlebrooke.co.uk

Yeah, I know this thread is old, but my question directly goes along with it.

I was looking into ordering some blades from Thurston, but on their Quote Request form it asks for a company name (required field). Do I NEED a company to order from them? Do I just make up a name to use, or what?
