I’d expect to have to take it pretty easy resawing with 1/2 HP on a 14” saw.

My 14” Delta bandsaw has a 1-1/2 HP motor and I still need to take it slow and easy when resawing some wood of much thickness. I do a lot of resawing and my setup works fine but if I rush it I can still bog it down fairly easily. I don’t think I’d be happy with 1/2 HP on my saw.
