I’m a confusing type of person , could be a little bit of autism involved, were not sure

If I get this new job in September working for our contractors and all goes well , it will be providing me with some extra income to play with .
So now I’m considering purchasing a few more tools , and may end up buying the plug and play electronics from Avid .
It all depends on how this new job goes , so I thought I’d do my homework now . Plus I love researching and buying tools

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I agree, though I did resaw a 14" wide board once. It was plenty wide and made a good video!

I've used mine to finish cutting 10" birch into thinner stock after I sliced 3" in from either side on the TS. That made it easy to cut the center with the BS. The Laguna is a nice machine and you'll probably be able to get parts longer than most other brands not that bandsaws tend to break much except blades.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

@RainMan 2.0 : Resawing anything much wider than a foot is going to leave you with slabs that want to warp. I think it's better to use narrower pieces and glue them up. Beside that, you still have to either hand plane or use a jointer and planer to have a usable chunk of wood for your CNC to work on.

I have the Laguna 14-12 and it does the job really well. I have a 3/4 inch Resaw King blade I use for wider stuff, but it does a good job with the half inch blade as well.

Just FYI, resawing is splitting a thick piece of wood into two thinner pieces. On highly figured woods, this gives you a book match, that is, you glue the two pieces together on the edge so the grain pattern is the same on both pieces. Often used for guitars and other musical instruments, it can also be used for furniture or panels. If you start with a 5/4 piece that's flat, by the time you finish and plane it, you will have two half inch thick panels.

There are several types of resaw blades, most have about 3 teeth per inch with deep gullets to carry off all the sawdust. Some blades cut cleaner than others, but I can't imagine not planing/sanding the pieces perfectly smooth. For a musical instrument I'd probably use a scraper instead.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
