Hi Art,

I just did some resawing over the weekend. I had a cocobola board about 1” x 5” x 36”. I’ve been using Woodworkers supply house brand for a while and I really like these blades. I use a 1/2” 4tpi. My process starts by jointing 1 face flat, take my first cut, then joint the next face. I do take really light cuts, not looking to dress the face, just keeping the next surface flat to ride against a tall fence for the BS. I have a delta with a 1/2hp motor, and it does the job (slow and steady.)

I run these thin rips through the drum sander, no sled. Again, slow feed rate and really light cuts. My 1” thick board (just a bit over) yielded 4 board @3/16”

Take a look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxYhJAYnzSk for the 4 way bookmatch.
