Good points Don and I think they contribute a great deal to the conversation. I guess I would have a followup question regarding order. I, myself, would hesitate to re-saw without jointing first. My fear would be the estimation I would make regarding the thickness of the piece at its most imperfect portion. It might be my inexperience, but to me there is the risk that you would suffer potential length/width loss because you are resawing a board that isn’t flat to the fence.

I realize that I am speaking in very general terms, so I don’t want to come across as believing that one is totally limited by the standards imposed by our tools. I was just thinking about how the limitations of the “weakest link” (as David coined it) can have an impact on our future tool purchases.

Thank you for commenting!
