I understand your concern. It s valid. I m just saying you need to weigh the costs. How many 1/32” savings from cuts you make will pay for that blade? That was the crux of my ebony comment.

It ll take a load of cuts of woods that are even average in cost, like cherry, walnut, to pay for that blade.

This would be a great challenge for LJers. How many linear feet of, say, walnut, would you have to cut to pay for a $160 saw blade? Pick a $/bf and run with it.

I can’t figure out that math problem right now. It’ll take me time to the point where this thread is dead :). But I do see what your saying.

Other than the blade possibly squeezing out one more piece for me, it can help by not having to buy more boards which obviously reduces the BF.
