Bandsaw resaw fence
Quick and dirty.

Hi LJ’s.
Here a quick and dirty bandsaw resawing fence.

You can read more in the blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/130837


Pictures:
1. Resawing.
2. Simple parts.
3. Fence edge.
4. Putting it together.
5. Fence clamped to bandsaw.
6. Long board resawing.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, even more that it will help you resaw some wood.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Very fine fence, Mads!! I like it being tall like that to keep the cut straight up and down!!!!

Cheers, Jim

Nice job although with what looks like a very nice saw, you likely can get away from a point fence? I used to use one when I had a smaller, cheaper saw but found with a good setup on a decent bandsaw, a regular fence was better. Am I missing something? Thanks

Interesting fence. I’ve been recently looking at building something similar. Most times the standard fence is fine but it seems with some wood I need to direct the cut. Thanks for posting, now I know it works.

I have always found that a bandsaw will not resaw with a blade that has been used for cutting curves. With a brand new sawblade I can cut veneer to 1/8” with no problem. Maybe it is just me.

I’ve never noticed that, at least with the 1/2” 3 TPI blades I normally use as the standard blade on my 17”. Interesting observation though that I’ll keep an eye on. Short of resetting the teeth somehow, I’m not sure how cutting curves would affect resawing at a later time.

Hi,
Yes I knew I would get comments on my lack of ability to resawl laugh.
Still not sure if it’s just the blade quality, I will try and order some better quality blades from Germany or UK and see if it will make a difference. My saw is a medium size and quality saw, so this might also mean something, but it should be fine enough…

Foghorn, wish I could say the same, but sadly I always get drift… But yes this fence is also perfect for curves in tall pieces. As I said it might also just be me… Laugh.

Grumpy, thanks, and a big smile.

madts, perhaps that is the thing, that I should dedicate a fresh blade, I always used the same for everything. Clever you. Thanks.

Ivan, big smile thank you.

Topa, thank you for your kind words.

svirt, Big smile, I love to do that, I have found out, that it is acually the part of wood working, that I like the best, making things, to make things. ;-)

doubleDD, yes it works and it’s easy to build. It is one of those things we push forever and then make in half an hour. Laugh.

Jim, yes also for tall curved cuts. Thanks Jim.

Dutchy, Thanks.

Lew, big smile and a warm thank you.

Thank you all for the comments, I do enjoy to get a wee feed back and especially advice or ideas.

Best thoughts,
Mads
