Andy, you are one of many band saw owners happy with their purchase of a Laguna 1412 band saw and Laguna Resaw King Carbide Blade. Like you say nothing finer when comes to re-sawing exotic woods. Laguna used to put that blade on sale often from their web site. They also offer other re-saw blades without carbide tips too. Cannot find your blade at the web site.

Lot of Carbide tip and Bi-metal band saw blades on the market selling for less or more than Laguna blades. Not sure everyone will fit a Laguna 1412 saw due to thickness of the blades meant for saws with larger wheels.

Original Poster a man on a budget might appreciate less expensive band saw blade. Carbon steel hard or flex back band saw blades the most economical.

Like mot all owners happy with their Rikon and Laguna 14” band saws. Most of the problems easy to over come. Little scoop on Laguna 1312:

I am interested in a Laguna 1412 band saw too, but do mostly wood turning have no need for a 3/4” blade. Would like to do a few band saw boxes so interested in smaller blades, have never been very successful with one yet.
