The Wood Slicer bandsaw blades from Highland Woodworking are awesome. When I first purchased my “Rikon 14 deluxe bandsaw my local Woodcraft store said that the 1/2” blade that came with it was pretty good. I took their advice on that, and also purchased a 3/4” 3TPI Timber Wolf blade for resawing. Both seemed to work, but my results were so-so. For the first real challenge I resawed some green cherry logs for turning blanks. I started with the blade that came with the saw. Meh. It really...

I first saw these at a woodworking in California about 8-9 years ago and bought a set that included threegrits. I was first attracted by the way they sanded endgrain.
