Slitting blades supplier?

October 3, 2008

Jeff recently recommended using carbide slitting blades instead of the high speed steel ones originally specified.  These are manufactured in the US by Johnson Carbide (see link on blog homepage) and distributed through MacMaster-Carr.  I have tried to find a UK supplier of solid carbide blades, ideally with the same hole diameter of 1/2″ to avoid the need to modify the machine.  Does anyone have any suggestions for a UK supplier?  Victoria
