The Wood Slicer bandsaw blades from Highland Woodworking are awesome. When I first purchased my “Rikon 14 deluxe bandsaw my local Woodcraft store said that the 1/2” blade that came with it was pretty good. I took their advice on that, and also purchased a 3/4” 3TPI Timber Wolf blade for resawing. Both seemed to work, but my results were so-so. For the first real challenge I resawed some green cherry logs for turning blanks. I started with the blade that came with the saw. Meh. It really...

Good resaw blade

Good resaw blade

1764 days ago by Sawdust2 | 17 comments »

My Highland Woodworking Woodslicer got dulled up really bad because I did not pay attention when I put it on the Jet bandsaw. I was using a 3/4” and it was really too big for a 14” bandsaw. I ended up running it against the blade guard and just beat the crap out of the teeth. My bad. Markrules is a fellow LJ and reps Morse blades. He suggested that I try their 4 TPI 1/2” blade.Well, when I unfurled the blade one of the teeth caught my thumb. I can tell you that the teeth ...

Just Get This One

Just Get This One

When I first got my Grizzly bandsaw, I was pretty disappointed with the results with the blade provided. I always knew I needed to get a better one and I was hesitant to use the tool because the experience wasn’t very nice. For an upcoming project, I decided now was the time to get a new blade. I checked the reviews here on lumberjocks and finewoodworking.com and decided to get this blade. It arrived today and after spending a few minutes getting it installed I was ready for a test c...

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

1150 days ago by bill4123 | 16 comments »

I just finished installing my Laguna Tools Driftmaster Fence on my Grizzly 17” Extreme Series bandsaw. I have only used it briefly to test it but I felt compelled to let everyone know about my negative feedback up to this point. I had a smooth transaction from Rockler and the shipping was prompt. The fence itself though was shipped as it came from the manufacturer and it is very much in-line with Laguna’s reputation…it arrived damaged. It was not damaged enough to effe...

Lenox Bandsaw blade

Lenox Bandsaw blade

2370 days ago by Tony | 15 comments »

Up until recently I have been using standard Band saw blade without much success, I tend to cut and re-saw a lot of white oak upto 12” in width. It was recomended to try the Lenox Tri-maste carbide tiped blade. It is a little expensive at about $140 for a 3/4” 3TPI x 136”, but boy was it worth it, I have just used it today, for all kinds of cuts on white Oak, including a 12” resaw of a board 8’ long, it was like a hot knife through butter – with vitually...

Carter Stablizer

Carter Stablizer

Turn you band saw into a scroll saw in a matter of minutes. The Carter Stablizer works with blades 1/4 ” and smaller only! You will also have to push the lower guide bearing back as far as they will go. The stabilzer wheel has a grove set so that the blade ride into it during sawing. This allow the blade to turn with no residence. The user has a very free flowing sense of control. When making tight turn the wood will absorb any heat caused by cutting leaving the blade cool to th...

Craftsman Bandsaw Fence - good bang for the buck

Craftsman Bandsaw Fence - good bang for the buck

1508 days ago by Jeison | 15 comments »

I spotted this while wandering through Sears the other day, and since my little 10” benchtop bandsaw doesn’t have a fence, and I plan picking up the Porter Cable 14” that Lowes has (which I know does not come with a fence) I figured for $40, this universal fence (which boldly claims to fit all models of bandsaws) would be a good investment (Being a hobbyist and “weekend woodworker” I don’t need the hyper-accuracy and features of one of the $150+ models̷...

JET 6-inch riser kit for 14 inch bandsaw

JET 6-inch riser kit for 14 inch bandsaw

1478 days ago by MOJOE | 15 comments »

So I installed this kit today on my JWBS-14DX. It was very straightforward and took about 30 minutes by myself. I must confess that I watched a quick vid on youtube, and ditched the instructions. I did look through them afterwards that they seemed alright. Anyway, the fit and finish on this kit is pretty good, and everything went together smoothly. My only complaint…..the powder coating on the riser block was not quite as nice as the powder coating on the saw, but, that really isn&...

Re-sawing is a breeze

Re-sawing is a breeze

162 days ago by CharlesA | 15 comments »

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 ...
