I have a Laguna 18BX so we aren’t overly far apart on machine size.

For Resaw, I have the carbide Laguna Resaw King blade and really like it’s cut quality, durability and longevity. My saw is rated for up to a 1-1/4” blade but I generally prefer not working at the upper limits of my equipment so went with a 1” blade, and the saw tensions it well. I got the blades from Laguna and they had the best price.

I also like the bi-metal Lenox Diemaster 2 blades, again for the cut quality, durability and longevity which provides a good value. The 1/4”, 6tpi is my primary go-to blade and usually remains on the machine, but I also have a 1/2” 4tpi blace the performs well. I got the blades from bandsawbladesdirect.com

I have plans to resaw a lot of wood from an old one-room schoolhouse and while I will be doing my best to find any nails or other metal, both visually and with a detector, I am concerned that I could miss something and inadvertently ruin a blade. Until I am relatively comfortable in what I am doing, I would like to add a less expensive blade to my collection so that I won’t be out a lot should I strike something bad.

I have tinkered around with getting a blade smaller than 1/4” and adding the Carter stabilizer for more intricate workings, but haven’t ventured there yet.
