A remarkable blade

A remarkable blade

04-16-2012 12:23 AM by gfadvm | 30 comments »

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”...

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

05-10-2010 08:09 PM by b2rtch | 28 comments »

I went to buy this fence last Thursday to mount it on my HF band saw.I mounted it Saturday and yesterday Sunday.I am mechanic by trade and it is my job to make stuff work, no matter what.Well, this fence was a challenge. I was expecting an easy and straight forward installation, the installation was anything but——The table had two threaded holes in the front which lined up with fixation holes in the fence but contrary to what it is supposed to be , when using these holes the fenc...

Wood Slicer

Wood Slicer

09-22-2011 10:10 PM by CartersWhittling | 27 comments »

Hello. I just got a new Wood Slicer Resaw blade from Highland Woodworking. After reading the setup and description of the blade I put it in my bandsaw and used a scrap 8/4 piece of oak to set the drift angle. Then I put a 10” maple log through the saw. Here is some pictures of the log I cut. The right half was done with a resaw blade that I got with my bandsaw from the previous owner and the left half is with the wood slicer. A little nicer I think. I bought both a 1/2” ...

The most incredible value in the industry

The most incredible value in the industry

12-30-2012 02:23 PM by musicgioni | 22 comments »

I bought a new Rikon 18” band Saw for my shop a few weeks ago. This is really my first band saw and I am very happy with it. I decided on buying a couple of after market blades by a very reputable manufacturer but I had so many issues with them that I send those back to woodcraft where I bought them. The third blade came directly from the manufacturer and for some reason did much better for me than the first two. Still, cuts with this 3/4” wide, 2-3 TPI blade were not as smooth a...

14" Band Saw Riser Kit for Harbor Freight Band Saw

14" Band Saw Riser Kit for Harbor Freight Band Saw

05-17-2009 11:21 PM by FJPetruso | 22 comments »

About 5 years ago I purchased a Harbor Freight Band Saw & the Riser Kit. I never installed the riser kit & stored it away until I needed it. Last month I failed to use my metal detector & while resawing some walnut I hit a foot peg, like the ones linemen screw into power poles, that the tree had completely grew around & ruined my band saw blade. So I took this opportunity to install the riser kit. I figured I would be playing with & tuning the saw up the whole day. Bu...

A Worthy bandsaw blade

A Worthy bandsaw blade

01-27-2008 01:04 AM by GaryK | 20 comments »

I have been using these blades for years now and they are fantastic. They do a great jog resawing. They create no vibration and noise due to their variable tooth spacing from 3 to 4 TPI. Leaves a great finish also.I have cut perfect .093” think slices off of an 11 1/2” board. Fine Woodworking April 2004 has rated their Wood Slicer blade as “Best All-Round Performer” in their independent test for speed, flatness and smoothness! It also has a very thin blade of .022”. At...

Steel City 6" Riser for bandsaw

Steel City 6" Riser for bandsaw

03-07-2008 06:35 PM by GaryK | 19 comments »

Here is the 6” riser kit parts for the bandsaw. The installation is fairly simple.This is a “must have” addition if you plan on doing any resawing. It gives you an additional 6” height for resawing extra wide boards. It works great! It increases the length of blade needed from 93 1/2” to 105”. The same as a Delta Bandsaw. ..First remove one big bolt with w 30mm socket wrench. and set the top half aside...Then install the riser block and the two dow...

Best bandsaw blade I've ever used and very reasonably priced.

Best bandsaw blade I've ever used and very reasonably priced.

Hal Taylor turned me on to Diamond Sterling blades. I’ve been using them for a year now. I bought the 3/8” 3 TPI, .032” blade and I love it. It is much, much better than the Olsen blades. I prefer the Diamond over the Tri-master (I believe) too. I think I paid around $100 for the Tri-master and I got the Diamond Sterling from here for around $20. I’m not affiliated with them at all. I had to cut some wood on a friends bandsaw who didn’t have the Diamond ...

I love this blade!

I love this blade!

06-23-2009 04:12 AM by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

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 go...

Grizzly H3051 Riser Block Kit (for G0555) but also fits Ridgid BS1400

Grizzly H3051 Riser Block Kit (for G0555) but also fits Ridgid BS1400

09-17-2011 01:00 PM by David Grimes | 18 comments »

I recently purchased and assembled a Ridgid 14” floor model bandsaw (the BS1400). I had also ordered and received the 6” riser kit from Grizzly that is made for their G0555 14” bandsaw, but also fits several of the other 14” bandsaws: Ridgid, Craftsman, Cummins, Summit, and others. It ran about $80 shipped, which is half what the Ridgid kit costs (if you can get one). This kit is rated 5 stars by 19 of 22 reviewers on Amazon, with the other three 4’s and 3...
