Jerry, I would recommend Lennox. I am using a woodmaster CT for resawing... last many times longer for me than the TW. I've never broken a TW, they just get dull quicker than I like for the price. I have heard the same isuue with woodslicer, they work well new, but dull quickly. I have had good service from Lennox blades. Not sure they make a 1/8" blade, but other than that they have just about anything you might want!
I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
