Default Resawing

Ok guys/gals,
I am researching for my future projects and what I am finding is that 8/4 lumber is just $2 more that 4/4. It seems to me that ordering the 8/4 is more economical that the 4/4 and resawing the 8/4. I have a 3hp 19" Grizzly BS on the way so resawing should not be an issue. I am just wondering if it is worth the extra effort of resawing for the money. By the way most of my projects will be furniture. What kinds of blades are being used with success in resawing? Your experiences are appreciated.

Ditto on the Timber Wolf blades. They are awesome and tend to last a lot longer because they are a low tension blade, which is better for the blade and your saw.

+2 on TW blades. I use a 1/2" 3tpi in my Delta 14" and it does a great job.
Use the flutter method to tension them.

Glad to hear the stabilizer works, I received mine but it wouldn't fit the Craftsman saw as they thought. Sears changed the 12" guides to the same guides as the 14" so I had to return and am waiting on the right one.

+3 on TW blades. If you're curious about which type to get, give Suffolk Machinery (google it), the manufacturer of TW and ask them. I've talked with them in the past and their people really know there stuff andwill not only give you a recommendation based upon the properties of the wood (hard vs. soft, thickness range and green vs dry) but they'll give you the reasons why.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

I bought one of those last year for my Shopsmith band saw and they do work, but only on small blades for making sharp turning cuts. They are not for use with large re-saw type blades.

Hi George

I have used the 1/8" ,1/4". and the 3/8" blades and it works on all of them..they say for the blades 1/4" and the 1/8" but I was amazed it work on the 3/8" just as well..

I always push the bounders the 1/2" /3pt. blade is my next list to try,should work because the blade 1/2" ,should help it running true..time will tell.. I have a 3/4" blade but I think that maybe pushing to far..
