I resaw a lot of really hard woods like Bois de Arc, Mesquite, and Jatoba and have been using 2 or 3 TPI resaw blades but felt like they were very slow and required too much force to push the material through them. I called Timberwolf and they suggested a new resaw blade. It is more expensive but T Wolf says they will outlast 5 conventional resaw blades so I ordered one. I’ve used it to resaw oak, hard maple, and Jatoba so far and I’m really happy with it. It goes through 6” of Jatoba like it was balsa. It literally cuts faster than my tablesaw! I’ll have to wait to weigh in on it’s longevity. An added bonus is no blade drift on my 17” Grizz Extreme Series. First pic compares it to a 2 and 3 TPI. Next pics try to show cut quality: 1 or 2 light passes through the planer eliminates all saw marks.
