I bought this blade when I first got my bandsaw and never took it out before today. Gave it a test run and wow, am I impressed. Super clean thin cuts even on a tiny saw you really wouldn’t consider a resawing workhorse.

I have a small box to cut the lid off of and had been dreading doing it end for end on the table saw. Now I have a great alternative.

Agree. I was contemplating purchasing a new bandsaw because I needed resaw capability and my old 14” Grizzly just wasn’t doing the job. I figured I may as well give one of these a try before plunking down all that money and wow, what a difference! It cut through 6” cherry and walnut like butter. I was able to slice a piece less that 1mm off the slab. Pretty cool.

I have one on my Rikon 10” and it’s been well worth it. I’ve resawn cherry, birdseye maple, and like you, I’ve used it to cut small boxes into two pieces. I go slow and let the blade do its job without bogging the motor down.

I assume this is the Highland Woodworking blade you are discussing, and if so, I agree 100%. I just used my saw today with this blade and it went through some very hard air dried cherry like it was cheese. It’s a great blade, and the price is very reasonable.
