I am wondering what the height is on the re-saw capacity of the Walker/Turner 16” bandsaw. Appreciate the help given on this forum and know someone will have the information needed, so thank you in advance. I am planning on re-sawing an engine for a ride on train and need 10 and a half inches.

Not entirely sure I understand the question, but most 14” bandsaws have a capacity to re-saw about 6”. I’d be very doubtful that a 16” bandsaw can resaw 10.5”. Bandsaws can have riser kits, which increase the resaw capacity. Can you measure said bandsaw?

Read some where that resaw capacity was close to 11.5 ”?

Which one you are looking at. They made a few different models, and while the old W/T MBN1105 (and BN1135) have 12” re-saw capacity… some other models, like the 3331/3341 only had 8” IIRC.

Probably to get an accurate accounting you will need to choose which of the WT 16” bandsaws. This suggests there are a few. I had a 22-639, and IIRC it was at 9”.
