This may have been addressed
In a previous post of mine but I couldn’t find it. I’m looking for a good resaw blade for my 14” bandsaw, so 93.5” blade. Any decent ones I can do some good ripping with without spending 150+ bucks?

The wood slicer blade from Highland Woodworking is an incredible blade at a very good price

I have one of those wood slicers. I struggled with other brands for years then last year bought one in desperation. It is thin and shiny and seems to be harder than other blades. After doing about 20 resaw cuts in hard maple it is still like new. I’ve left in on the machine all year for other things. It seems no worse for the wear. My bandsaw issues have gone away.

Superior steel is your answer, I believe.

Another vote for the Wood Slicer by Highland Woodworking. I had read about it, but thought how could it be that much different. I broke down and bought one a few months ago. Amazing, It’s the only blade I will ever use for re-sawing.

Try http://www.supercutbandsaw.com/index.html
I used to buy Woodslicer blades but found them to go dull quickly I found 1/2” re-saw carbide blades from Supercut to last a lot lot lot longer and cost about the same as woodslicer blades. I use their “Premium Gold Carbide Blades that have three teeth per inch (hook cut.) I strongly recommend this blade.
I resaw a lot of six inch maple and cedar.Totaling abount 500 board feet a year.

I’ve had good luck with a 3 tooth, 1/2” TimberWolf blade on my 20” Delta bandsaw. I keep it on that saw all the time, and it works well enough up to the 10” or so width I’ve tried with it. I resaw quite a bit for my boxes. I’ve not tried the WoodSlicer blades, but there are many who swear by them.

I think I’ll give that woodslicer a go and see how it works for me. Have any of you made rip cuts with them? I want to rip down the middle of some cedar logs.

I have tried numerous other blades and this is by far the best in this price range.

Has anyone tried the Infinity Rip Saw Blade?
My research on this site lead to me pick the one…
Bandsaw on order – never tried it.
At $30, I think I will oder a 2-3 different ones and do my own tests….

I’m gonna go with that Woodslicer. I’ll let you all know how it works out for me. Also, can I get a riser block for my off brand band saw? Are they somewhat universal?
