Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw

I have a benchtop Delta 5” bandsaw (model 28-185c) which will take up to a 3/8” blade. Any recommendations on type of blade to get? I would like to do some pattern cutting and potentially some ‘light’ resawing.

Here’s a link to the specs on the bandsaw

Pattern cutting and resawing are pretty much opposite ends of the bandsaw spectrum. you may find it better to get two separate blades. On the resawing end, i really like my Woodslicer from Highland.
