Topic tags/keywords: resawing bandsaw blades

I’ve not been satisfied with the performance of the “green wood” type of bandsaw blades that I have been using and would appreciate any comments from those of you with a similiar machine. The last blade that I ordered had a butt joint mismatch of more than 1/32”. Would be nice to find a quality blade that cuts good.

I’m using (and others on this site) the woodslicer resaw blade from highland woodworking with excellent results! not sure how it would handle green wood though. how green are you talking about?

Highland also offers a “green wood” blade with a little more set to the teeth that is supposed to be very good. I bought one recently but haven’t been able to try it yet.

I have tried the Woodslicer on dry wood and it is a fantastic blade.

Thanks for the info. As to how green – from freshly cut to a couple of months old. I have also heard that the Woodslicer does a good job with dry wood but had not heard of anyone using their “green wood” blade. I haven’t had what I would call good performance from either of the ones sold by Olson or Timberwolf, especially the later.

I’ve also used timberwolf resaw blades from Suffox machine in Long Island. They sell through other vendors. Look for timberwolf blades.
