I went out to my garage shop this afternoon to start buidling a resaw fence for my bandsaw. As I started to cut some 3/4” plywood, I noticed a tall auxiliary fence that I had made for my router table. As I looked, I thought…I wonder if that would work on my bandsaw, so I gave it a shot.
I did a few test cuts in white oak and sugar pine. The fence did a great job, the Timberwolf blade cut the stock like a knife through butter, and the saw was tracking wonderfully. I checked the cuts with a good combination square and my calipers. The cuts came out very square to the jointed, milled edges and the thickness was very consistant. A quick pass through the planer would remove the saw marks and even out the minor variations in thickness. I’m very pleased.
