I picked up a Laguna 1412 this past weekend. I haven’t had the chance to put it together yet, but I need to order a couple of blades. (the 1412 does not include a blade)
I’d like to get a resaw blade and a decent general purpose bandsaw blade for curved cuts, etc…
I know Laguna makes the Resaw King, but I’d rather not drop $150 on a blade for my first foray into the wonderful world of resawing. I’m not worried about perfectly smooth cuts, as I have a drum sander and can run the pieces through that after resawing.
Based on my research, it seems like the Woodslicer blades get fairly decent reviews. I was thinking about picking up a 3/4” blade. Does this seem like a reasonable purchase?
As far as general purpose blades, I have no idea what to get. Do I buy 1/2” or 1/4” or 1/8”? How many TPI? What brand blade should I get?
Thanks in advance!
