What Do You Call It? Saw Blade or Blade Saw?
“Excuse me sir, can I ask you what kind of band saw blade you are running right now?”
“Sure it’s the blade I had laying around when I needed to cut some material.”
Okay, so how many times have we all heard a reply similar to that? In this blog we are going to address the “great mystery” of band saw blades for metal applications.
The poor old band saw, sits in a dark corner of the shop and don’t get no respect. This band saw is rarely — if ever — serviced, is filthy, has chips all over it and is probably located by the overhead door where it’s always cold.

Jorgenson Machine Tools has both new and used shearing machines for sale.

We can provide a new shear for every cutting need, from small, motorized MS series shears, to larger, more powerful machines like the SBT series (Swing Beam Touchscreen) and the VS series (Variable-Rake Shear).

Advice for Salesmen
By Roger Jorgenson
Founder of Jorgenson Machine Tools
My experience as a salesman and business owner taught me many things. I’d like to share some of them with you, if I could.
Persist. When we are out making cold calls, we get tired, worn out and sometimes frustrated. I’ve found that making those next calls, rather than calling it a day, seems to pay off big time. Don’t ever give up. read more →
