I think a built fence is the way to go for sure. You can make the fence fit your saw rather then vice versa. My saw has the slightest tendency to drift a bit at the end of the cut (or it is me getting tired at the end of the feed)...needless to say, I have adjusted my fence and jig to allow for this and to keep my cut straight. It has made my resawing much more accurate….and keeps me from alot of extra planning (planner knives are much more expensive then bandsaw blades).

I also use the woodslicer…and I echo the above recommendations….this blade is one of the best I have used for resawing. It is reasonably priced….and makes a clean burn free cut even when I have fed in some extremely hard woods.
