I bought a grizzly G0555 14” bandsaw about a month or so ago. So far I have been very pleased with it. I am in the process of making cutting boards for Christmas gifts and have been frustrated using it. I have been using a 3/4” 3 tpi hook blade for trying to rip pieces of maple and walnut. It comes out looking like it is rough cut. Is this something that is just to be expected? I have a POS tablesaw that I feel doesn’t cut as accurate as my BS due to the fence on the TS. It definitely cuts smoother though but there is a spot on my TS fence that got shaved by the blade (don’t yell…..it was from a previous owner) and it shows on my cuts. Is there a blade that I could use as a resaw blade that will also be good at producing straight and clean cuts with say 4/4 lumber?
I have read good things about the wood slicer blades but I can only find them in 1/2” for my saw (93 1/2”). I figured the wider the blade the better for resawing and stability….... For what it’s worth my 3/8 blade cuts smooth, just drifts more than I like
I was thinking about running by highland woodworking since I live in the ATL area and check them out
