Bandsaw blade problem?

Carole Valentine
>I decided to put my new Highland Hardware Woodturner's Blade on my bandsaw today. First thing was the teeth were backwards and I had to turn the blade inside out. Then there was just no way this blade was going on my bandsaw - it lacked almost half an inch even though it was supposed to be a 105" blade. I finally gave up and put a new Viking blade from LV on there with no problem whatsoever. Anyone else ever had this problem with a new blade? Also wondering if having to turn a blade inside out weakens it?
