Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw blade resawing

Hello Lumberjocks! Thanks for the great responses about the Longsworth chuck! New question is about bandsaw blades. I have a grizzly bandsaw and am looking for a good blade to saw logs in half and then cut out my bowl blanks. Have been looking at Highland and Timberwolf. Can I get away with one great blade for resawing and general use? All the best and as usual thank you for your knowledge! -dustyjosh

What size BS, thickness of wood(s)?
One size fits all is not a panacea. Resaw, shaping, and fine curves require different blades.
There are a BUNCH of sawyers here who can help if they/we are given some specifics.
Operators are standin’ by. BUT WAIT…......

Hi. I think blade is around 105”. It’s the grizzly go55 with the extension. The logs are at most 12” thick. A lot of black walnut right now. Does that help?

Inquire with www.sawblade.com . Try to give them a call.
