Resawing bandsaw blades
« on: May 02, 2013, 07:40:08 AM »

   I was looking for a 3 tpi, 1/2 inch resaw blade for my 14 inch bandsaw.    These Timberwolf blades are offered at almost $10 less than I could find them anywhere else:  http://www.baileysonline.com/itemdetail.asp?item=TW+1203AS&catID=

    The only difference I can see is that it's a "positive claw" tooth set, as opposed to a "skip tooth" pattern, which I think is usually recommended for resawing hardwood:   http://www.amazon.com/Timber-Wolf-Bandsaw-Blade-93-1/dp/B0032YWWFC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=25YMFTO2EHQLV&coliid=IEN3C1S4S98H8

   I gather that Timberwolf is the one to get for resawing.   Am I OK with the first one for 2/3 the cost, and does anybody know if there is a significant difference in these blades?

I've tried several different blades on my 14 inch saw, with riser block, and easily the best has been the Woodslicer, sold by Highland Hardware. I have not, though, tried any of the carbide tipped blades, as they are too expensive for my needs.

I have used the Timber-wolf blades and they work very well.

   Thanks for the advice guys.  Sounds like the Woodslicer is a good bet.
