I have not tried the 18T Freud Barry, having been so happy with the 24T which BTW goes to 2-3/4” thickness. To tell the truth I have been cross-cutting on my 12” MS and resawing on my 14” BS before I even get to the TS 95% of the time. That said, I did in fact rip some 8/4 on the TS yesterday, in order to make some French Provincial sticking for a cabinet. I needed 2” x 1” sticks and did not want to have to plane down a larger board to get it.

I am finding that I am more and more ripping 3/4” or 1” strips off of 8/4 lumber because it is a much cheaper way of getting quarter sawn lumber for cabinet framing (if you are careful while picking your 8/4 at the lumberyard).
