I was having a lot of trouble with resawing on the bs. After reading all the raves on this site about the wood slicer, I made the plunge and purchased one.

Luckily, I happened to pick up a copy of FWW #189 in the past few weeks and followed the instructions line by line.

Now, for a seasoned pro this might not be a big deal, but for someone like me just starting out after experiencing a LOT of frustration simply trying to resaw in a straight line this was like a revelation. Based on my experience I would definitely recommend this blade; certainly the techniques from the FWW article helped, but I could not have done this without the hardware (certainly not with the crappy blade I bought at the local store a couple months ago).

I shall be afraid of resawing no more…

Good blades make all the difference.

yeah, I find FWW is a huge source of excellent quality resources, in details, in easy to follow manner. I am just getting into working with a Band saw, and have several logs of apple wood that is waiting in the corner to be transformed into boards… from all the reviews here, I’ll def. get a wood slicer blade for resawing. which one do you use? 1/2” or 3/4”
