Matt, if you’re going to be doing a lot of resawing, you want the least amount of teeth on the blade, so get like a 3 tpi blade. Too many teeth on the blade will clog up when resawing and cause blade wandering and overheating problems. I use 3 or 4 tooth blades for everything. You really can’t tell much difference in the finish of the cut, if you’re using good blades. I wouldn’t recommend a 3/4” blade for a 14” band saw. Too much stress on the saw frame.
