RESAWING (DRY WOOD)
Our ¾” x 2/3 tpi x .025 blades have a variable pitch tooth pattern. They are made of Swedish Silicon Steel. The teeth are induction hardened, milled for true tracking. These blades run under a little lower tension which is better for your band saw. Our welds are warranted. This ¾” x 2/3 tpi blade is generally used for cutting 3"-12" kiln or air-dried hardwoods and 3"-10" kiln or air-dried softwoods. It leaves a nice finish. It's an excellent resaw blade.
Our ¾” x 3 tpi x .025 blades are made of Swedish Silicon Steel. The teeth are induction hardened, milled for true tracking and produce a thin kerf (the total overall set is .048”). These blades run under a little lower tension which is better for your band saw. Our welds are warranted. This ¾” x 3 tpi blade is generally used for straight-line cutting 3”-10” hardwoods and 3”-8” softwoods. It is an excellent blade for cutting veneers and resawing expensive woods. It leaves a very nice finish.

I used the 3/4" 2-3 tpi for sawing mesquite logs, up to 11" thick, into slabs for drying & further use. It cut very smoothly and left a nice finish which will reduce the amount to be planed when I use them, in a year or 2.
Given the thickness of the logs, there was absolutely no drift or problems with the cut.
I use a Jet 14" with built in 12" height. 1.25 hp motor.
