I found a gearbox for my 7v horizontal bandsaw and while it's being shipped I figure I should get a blade for it. I think it takes a 96 inch blade but am curious to know what width to get for it. Should it be the max width of the wheel or less or more? If you have a 7v I would love to know what you run. If not and you have guidance I'm all ears. Thanks.

According to my 1984 Delta/Rockwell catalog, the 7V uses a 1/2 inch blade.

I have one, it is a 1/2 " blade. Get a bi metal vari-pitch blade. Remember, only adjust the speed when the motor is running. These are nice hobby size saws.
