Great resaw blade

Great resaw blade

01-29-2008 08:10 AM by johnjoiner | 3 comments »

Just after Christmas I got two new band saw blades from Iturra Design (no web site) in Florida. The blade I’m reviewing here is a 105” 3/4” woodslicer 3/4 TPI. (That means it’s variable, 3 teeth in one inch, 4 the next) for $21.20. Along with Mark Duginske and his Band Saw Handbook, the guys at Iturra are band saw gurus. I believed in them before, but I hadn’t bought into their recommendations on blades. I don’t know what I was thinking. My saw is a 3/4...

Wood Slicer

Wood Slicer

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” ...

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...

My band saw is far from top of the line but this one item has improved it greatly.Had I not seen it demonstrated at a wood show I would not have paid the approx $70price. The lower guide is removed when using this. I can scroll cut shapes that I would never have tried with this saw. http://www.carterproducts.com/product.asp?product_id=37&cat_id=14

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

05-31-2011 03:54 AM 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...

My 18” bandsaw is, essentially, dedicated to resawing and other straight cuts. I was not happy with the original fence and I looked to upgrade. I did not find many options for an 18” bandsaw and finally purchased this Carter magnet based fence. I’ve worked with it some and now I offer a mixed review with both the positives and the negatives as I see them. (As an FYI – I have a second, smaller, band saw that I use for the curvy stuff.) As I would expect fro...

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

I was beginning to think I would never have much luck resawing on the bandsaw. I had been using Delta blades that were pretty well worn. I wanted a blade that would slice 3/16” veneers that I could plane down to a consistent 1/8” thick for laminating leg stock. This blade fits the bill. Give the man at your local woodworking store a $20 bill in exchange for the ability to resaw with ease. This is a 3 tpi X 1/2”wide hook blade with a raker set. As such it is very aggres...

Timber Wolf 3/4" x 2-3 Variable Resaw Bandsaw Blade

I was resawing some old reclaimed white oak last week when my resaw blade snapped in half. Not a pleasant sound. Luckily I was in the middle of a cut, I had just finished cutting a piece and stepped a couple of feet away to grap the next piece of wood. That’s when I heard the huge band. Even though I had never experienced this before I knew exactly what it was. The 3/4 resaw blade bought I originally bought with the saw from Grizzly had snapped at the weld. So I decided to call the f...

Good resaw blade

Good resaw blade

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 ...

This actually works. I cannot add much that isnt covered in the youtube videos Carter has up. I was 50/50 on buying it as I thought it may be hype. But it works great. I cut some amazing curves with it and now think it wasnt that expensive after all. OK for $80 it is expensive. Hopefully the bearing is a good one and I would assume it must be as its constantly engaged with the blade. Check out the promo vids Carter has. I am not affiliated at all. My real life experience matches what is...
