I’ve done it the way SteveN suggests, probably me but I didn’t get as good a cut as with a fence.

A good resaw depends on a perfectly set up bandsaw and a sharp, correct blade.

Before you do anything:

1. Start by backing off all the guides and get the blade tensioned up. Don’t go by the guide. @ 6” you should barely get any deflection. Be aware changing the tension can change the tracking on some saws.

2. Check the blade for square to table before you set guides.

3. Set the guides

4. Check the fence for square to table.

5. Adjust the fence for drift.

6. Fence needs to be at least 3/4 the height of the board. Use an auxilary fence if needed.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
