Default Resawing on a Grizzly 14" band saw.

I needed some 1/8" thick wood this week and tried to use the fence that came with the saw but we all know that didn't work. I then tried to follow the line I made down the piece of 3/4" wood. I stayed within the limits and was able to plane it down to get two pieces 1/8" thick but it wasn't pretty. So what do I need to do?

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Kreg has a nice bandsaw fence. I bought one and mounted it on my new old Minimax S45 bandsaw. The Kreg kit comes with a fence only long enough for a 14 inch saw which should work for you. I had to buy a longer fence for mine since I have a 20 inch table.

You should not have drift but the above fence will adjust for it.

Woodcraft had them on sale for $107. I think you can find them on eBay for that same price.

The 16 inch Laguna (Italian made) is a dream machine. A friend and I went down to Laguna and he bought one there. Incredible engineering in that thing. But too rich for my occasional-user blood. The 14/twelve is an excellent machine for the money, takes a 3/4 inch resaw blade and cuts straight up to 13 inches high. Not cheap compared to a couple of other bandsaws, but I think from my research that it is far and away the best machine for the money. Of course, there are differing opinions, but this is mine.

I had a 14" grizzly and upgraded to the LT16 sometime ago for about 3 time the cost of a grizzly and never looked back.

Buy a 3/4" resaw blade, probably 4TPI. Dump the factory fence, you will need to make a simple fence. You will need to set the fence to the drift angle for your saw, plenty of youtube vids on that. That saw will easily resaw, just take your time cutting. I would suggest youtube woodwisperer, he has some good ones on bandsaws.

I am very happy with my 14" Grizzly with riser block. I use Highland's Woodslicer Wood Slicer Resaw Bandsaw Blade | Bandsaw Blades. for resawing. I follow Snodgras's set up video https://www.google.com/search?q=snod...utf-8&oe=utf-8. The fence on my Grizzly is "adjustable" There are 4 set screws where the blade of the fence attaches to the base. There is enough play to adjust it. I am very satisfied with my Grizzly and am doubtful that I would be three times happier with spending three times the money.
I did replace the guide bearings. When I took them to the bearing supply house, there is one local, the counterman shared that the Grizzly had a good quality Taiwanese bearing but they stocked the best quality made in Italy.

I made a simple fence out of MDF and shot some sealer on it for a little slicker finish, works great. I've posted this before but here's a video of it in action -
