I just went to an exotic wood sale and bought some wood that I would like to make some inlay’s/ veneers out of. Don’t have a bandsaw so I was wondering if anyone knew of any special types of ultra thin kerf blades for the table saw? The thinnest I have found so far is one of Frued’s that has a .083 saw kerf…anyone know of any others. The wood I bought is pretty nice stuff so I hate wasting however much would be wasted using my regular blades

if the arbor is big enough, you could try a skillsaw blade. Frued makes a good one @ 7&1/4” and the kerf is even thinner than a 10” thin kerf table saw blade. I just don’t know for sure (without looking) the arbor size…. It may be too small, but definately worth a check.

Tenryu makes some ultra TK’s in 10” blades:

RS-25524U 10” 24 5/8” .079” ultra-thin rips and crosses $61.25
RS-25540U 10” 40 ATAF 5/8” .079” Smooth cutting ultra-thin combo $70.75

You might find thinner kerf with 7-1/4” blades

For what you’ll save in material from spending cash on a specialty blade, you could probably have just used the blade you have, and bought more stock with the money saved. There isn’t much difference from a typical thin kerf 3/32” blade, and those listed.

14” Bandsaw, .025 thick blade with a thin kerf will get you down to about .032
