Very sharp and very tough. Made quick work of some oak and elm.
This is a great blade for re-sawing, its just what I'd hope it would be. Works great in my grizzly 17 inch band saw.
Blade is super sharp with a f fairly thin kerf works great for re-sawing. Best band saw blade I have ever used.
I am used to cutting my boards 3/16 inch thicker than what I need for my finished project. I needed to do that with other blades to sand out the imperfections from the cut. I make jewelry boxes and like my boards around 1/4 inch thick. This blade felt hungry for the wood I was feeding it seemed to want it faster. I took my boards to the thickness sander and they came out clean and ready with very minimal sanding but to thick for my project. With this blade now I am cutting my boards 5/16 and sanding them with a hand sander. I resaw cherry, maple, oak, and walnut. If you want good clean cut this is the blade you want. If you want easy ordering and fast delivery this is the company to buy from.
I followed the tensioning instructions on the package (which, by the way, are clearer than the instructions on the website) and without further ado had a perfectly straight rip, both freehand and with the fence.
I needed the blade for a small project, it worked. I’m really not in a position to review this but I will say that previous other blades have great. (3/16 & 1/4)
I’m ripping hundreds of feet of kiln dried lumber, from 1” to nearly 4” thick. This blade is producing the best results I’ve had from any blades I’ve used. It is exactly the right combination of tpi and hook in a blade that is not too thick. PS Wood Machines website is easy to order from, and I really appreciate the suggestions on uses for each type of blade. I’ll be back!
It all starts with your web site. Easy to navigate, so you can order the correct band saw blade. Items ordered, arrived promptly. I quickly installed and used band saw blade to cut up raw material. Worked perfect !
Bought two of these so I'd have one for a back up just in case. My laguna re-saw blade broke after a few years of use. I'd been purchasing other timber wolfe blades from PS Wood so I thought I'd give the re-saw blade a try especially since it's less expensive. I set up my blades using the Snodgrass method and did the flutter test. I was making 1/4" sapele edge-banding. Blade work fantastic and probably even better than my old Laguna Re-saw blade. Very happy with blade performance and customer service. Aloha
