Purely because I like wasting my time on stuff like this.
A 1/32” slice of 8/4 lumber is equal to 0.005208 bdft per lineal foot. Therefore, you need to rip 192’ of lumber to save 1 bdft. Assuming a $10/bdft (which pricey, but not super pricey) you would need to rip 3072’ to save $160. Assuming the typical rip cut is 4’ long, that’s 768 cuts. Assuming you make 10 cuts/day, that’s 77 days, or a 2.5 months. Not that bad.

The question I have, just for information purposes, is what is a typical kerf for a bandsaw blade?
