    Re: On Band Saw Blades

    I like the Wood Slicer resaw blade from Highland Woodworking.
    Haven't resawed any hard maple, but I have done plenty of
    cumaru (Brazilian teak) and ebony, both very dense.
    I find that their blade leaves very little saw marks and it
    only takes a pass or two through the thickness planer
    to finish it.

      Laguna Tools Resaw King. I managed to eliminate blade drift, cuts are square even when I use the miter gauge.

      I added a riser block for resawing but .75 Horsepower is not enough power to get the job done.
