"Tried these 3/8" blades after having a lot of trouble with the 1/2" version snapping (see review under that item). Although cutting well (hardwood, MDF, ply) these snapped just as easily as their 1/2" brethren. The problem would seem to be that the 0.025" thickness is too thick to cope with a bandsaw with 250mm bandwheels and the associated tight flexing.
Have reverted back to (initially more expensive) Hakansson blades (0.014" thick), which last considerably longer and are, therefore, much cheaper in the long run.
