Sounds li,e err like you needed something bigger Tom, my 14” with extension is doing all I need it to do and more, my next toy is going to be the x-carve CNC.

It took 5 minutes to cut a piece of black walnut that was 8 inches high and a foot long. Good luck with a cnc Randy.

Thanks for checking this out. :<)

Talk about rich .I know a guy who has a whole bunch of walnut named Grixzz! LOL! The money from the Saw I sold went toward the new saw and made it reasonable to do.

Thanks for stopping by, And hang in the my friend.

Congrats on the new bandsaw Tom. What blade are you using on it for re-sawing, i.e., TPI, blade width, etc.?

Lee,

Thanks for checking in. Different blades for different work. I’m looking at Lenox bimtal blades for the new saw. I had pretty good luck on the old one with them. I bought a TimberWolf blade 3 tpi 3/4 inch that I plan to use on the wood that has been air drying for awhile.

I will also get a 1/4 inch blade and 1/2 inch for curvy cuts. LOL!

Nice new toy, me I am still trying to find somewhere else to put my 14” JET so I can get the bigger lathe from Grizzly in the place I want. Without opening up a wall and making another extension to the shop. Of course winning the lottery or discovering I inherited a ton of money from a rich relative would help alot!!!

Tom, nothing like walking in the shop with a big new tool staring at you. Makes the shop look cleaner too. Haha. Maybe Murphy will be jealous and leave for awhile.

- DocSavage45

How about considering the TimberWolf 3/4in 2-3tpi blade? When I switched from the 3/4 3tpi to the 3/4 2-3tpi I saw a great improvement in my resaw cuts. The 2-3tpi really keeps the saw cut clear of dust and no clogging. Just a thought…

Sorry if there are not any pictures it did not happen :) Great saw. I have the original thats 13 years old and still going.

I’m going to send you a PM on the laguna resaw king and how to get a big discount on them. I use my 513 now just for resaw. (I have a 14” 1934 delta for other uses).

Sorry about the original picture. Tried to do a short cut when I first posted

Fred, Phil, and bonesbr594 it’s not your computer. This bandsaw is what I should have originally purchased, but my GO 555 is/was a great saw. The price on this machine with my sale of the 14 inch saw made it doable. And it’s like the car people buy when they retire? LOL!

I was going to stop my psych practice , but as my wife said “It pays for your woodworking.” That is true, and I plan to put more effort into the woodworking business this year. Hoping that this saw will make my resawing more efficient and require less time and effort. As they said on Tool Time “More Power” LOL!

Mike,

I have considered the 2-3 tpi and the fact fewer teeth is a less stressful cut. The blade I chose is still in the box, and after a little practice with the new saw and it’s quirks I will put the New TW blade on the machine. The recomendations I have read is using a thicker blade for green wood cuts and the TW bimetal blade for dried wood.

Thanks for your input.

I’m still a cheap guy and looking for deals and the place where I bought my Lennox blades is pretty reasonable.

Bought the TW blade on Amazon becuse I have some gift cards that reduce the price and I’m a prime customer.

Just heard about the decision re: SawStop and Bosch re: patent. But they can sell in Canada. Plan your new shop well my friend. Mine is helter-skelter Murphy inspired. Any new furniture?

Grizzman I feel your pain. I bought the same saw back in August of 2016. Set it up and started working 12 hour shift 6 days a week. For almost two months I just looked at it. Finally got into the shop, but now back at the long shift again. All this overtime, I’m thinking I need a new planner.

Tom, thanks for sharing!
Suggestion if your going to do a fair amount of re-sawing.
You can another virtual 1/2hp to your saw by investing in a carbide blade as wide as your saw will accept.
I have the Rikon 18” BS and that blade (1” wide) made me smile. Faster and cleaner\better results.

Enjoy the new toy!

welcome to LumberJocks! I have checked out the carbide blades as Matt Cremona had mentioned it was expensive but cost effective in the long run. It’s on my shopping list but first I have to get familiar with Papa Bear! LOL!

Maybe make your own blades and repair the broken ones also. Get some band saw blade coil stock
and learn to braze them together. Or solder them, which ever is the correct term and procedure.
