I bought and used the 3/4-inch wide Laguna Tools Resaw King band saw blade on my 17-inch Grizzly band saw. The results were amazing! In the video I show:
- The steps I took to correct for drift, and show the actual resaw operation.
- The results of resawing quarter-sawn white oak, a very dense, hard wood.
- The importance of blade tracking, and the effect of adjustments to the blade position on the wheels.
- Details of the resaw fence I have used for several years, and
- A summary of everything I did in the video.
I can summarize the results of my first resawing with the Resaw King blade in one word: Terrific! I have never been able to get such great quality of cut with any of regular blades on my Grizzly 17-inch band saw; the surfaces of the resawn pieces were so smooth, I think I might be able to go directly to sanding. I think now I will be set to start resawing some lumber, for some projects later this year. I am excited! And I hope this video will help you in resawing lumber in your own shop. If you have a chance to try this blade, you will love it.
