I’ve been frustrated resawing on my bandsaw. I have a Craftsman (Rikon) 12” that serves me well. I thought I’d just use my Olson 1/2” 3 tpi skip blade, but my results were really frustrating to me. The cut was rough and labored.
I did a little research and realized I had some technique problems, but the cut still was not acceptable to me. So I decided I’d try the famous Highland Woodworking Wood Slicer 1/2” resaw blade. I am stunned at how easily it cuts through 6” walnut or maple with a very smooth cut. Combined with my technique and machine adjustments, my resawing has improved by leaps and bounds. I highly recommend this blade.
[I think resawing is one of the funniest terms in woodworking.]
