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?

- isotope

Also would like to note that no one has taken in account that he is going to have to buy a blade anyway, so deduct that from the cost of the infinity and he is only paying what, $80.00 more?

Even though, I agree with Nubs and sawdustdad.
