I have a question for you all. I’ve gotten to the point where I want to start milling small logs which will be around 200mm – 300mm in diameter (8” – 11” inches). When I bought my Laguna 14/12 I also bought the Resaw King blade to suit it. The blade alone cost me $250 AU.
Is it okay to use this particular blade for milling wet logs?
The reason why I ask is because I was thinking about using the Resaw King to mill the logs today however I wasn’t sure what would happen to the blade afterwards, whether the blade would rust due to the wetness of the timber or damage it in some way so I didn’t want to risk a $250 blade.
Also the species that I am looking to mill will be Canadian Maple, Oak, Walnut, Ash and Australia natives (which are tough as nails).
