The Hitachi models are the CB75F and CB100F. They are
always available on ebay and Craigslist due to their specialized
applications, but maybe not near you.

I own an older pre-CB Hitachi resaw and while I haven’t used
it much, it resaws better in my opinion than a standard saw
running a 1/2” – 1” blade. There is beam strength at play
with the 3” wide blade. Many Hitachi’s were sold to luthiers
in N. America. In Japan they are a timber framing tool.

A fine modern European bandsaw with a 1” blade can make
the cut as well. The Euro saws have more power than
the Japanese resaw machines. Prices can be pretty high
but used saws are not hard to find considering all the affluent
hobbiests who buy high-end band saws.
