In my shop i like things to match. bookmatched especially. and one of my favorite things in the world is projects from all one slab of wood. so naturally i do ALOT a resawing. so for that i need a good resaw blade. This blade really fulfills my need too! I have a 14” bandsaw with the riser block so for resawing i got for the 105” 3 tpi by 3/4” blade. these blades have hook teeth which is very aggressive but also leaves a pretty nice finish. not glue ready by any means but good enough that it can be cleaned up easily. One thing you have to remember is that this is a low tension band saw blade. there are directions on how to set it on the back of the package but it is not set to the same tension as a regular 3/4” blade as your saws tension meter will say. im not really sure what the technical benefits of this are but i find that the blade cuts a lot better even when im cutting 12” stock on my bandsaw. just remember take your time you are not going to fly though a 12” wide panel. even with the 5 hp 20” bandsaw its going to take time. but the blade just really preforms excellently and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a resaw blade.
