The blade that came off was definitely 91.5”. I believe a 92.5” would barely fit and put it at the max extent of its current range.


It is 91.5 or 92.5? There were some 14” band saws that used a 92.5 blade.

While 92.5 inch blades are not commonly stocked at wood working stores, they are available from several sources for same cost as common 93.5 found in wood working stores. There are also folks who can make custom sizes, like: https://www.toolcenter.com/BLADES_TO_SIZE.html

There are some wood working forum posts elsewhere that suggest that the tension mechanism can be adjusted to allow use of larger 93.5 inch blades. Never attempted it when I owned one of those saws. Just ordered shorter blades.

YMMV
