  • Lennox Trimaster blade on BS 1400???

    As I use my BS1400 quite a bit for cutting hardwoods, I've been contemplating the investment in a Lennox Trimaster blade (105 x 1/2 x 3 TPI), but I've had other's tell me a 14" BS can't properly tension a carbide-tipped blade. I've spoken with Iturra designs, who say with their high-tension spring, it can be tensioned to 15,000 PSI on a 14" saw, less than the mfr-suggested 25,000 for this blade, and it will still give better cuts than any other blade they've tried.

    Is anyone else using this blade/saw?

    I put a Timberwolf 93.5", 3/4", 3 tpi (not carbide) on my BS14002, tensioned it up to the mark (with the factory spring), resawed some 5 " walnut and it worked like a charm. 3 passes with a Stanley#4 handplane and it's smooth as glass. I talked to the Timberwolf folks and this is the blade they recommended.
