Guys, I need help finding a new blade for my portable band saw. This one is plain worn out. Tips appreciated.

Navy portable: the Seabees can tear it down and load it onto a battleship in under a week.

Does it have cutting teeth on both sides or are they driving teeth?

I use it for trimming my toenails.

Cutting teeth on both sides. You would set the mill to take a reasonable slab, make the cut, advance the log and make the next cut while bringing the carriage back. The bands are driven by the smooth drive wheels only.

When you are cutting up a large log that is 24 feet long or so, bringing the carriage back without cutting wastes time. Production is profit.
