  • RESAWING Specifications

    I would like to see some pics ,from some of you who resaw ,Hawailad ,mentioned resawing 8' planks .I was going to P.M him than I thought others would also be interested in what modification ,you have to make and how to handle and control input and out put ,so could any of you who have mastered resawing ,advise what is needed to handle logs and long planks that are real tippy and difficult to handle.
    Thanks in advance ,

    Carl, I really have not done as much re-sawing as you might think...but I will be happy to explain how I do it. When I have chunks of wood to thick you cut up on the table saw, I set the fence on my 14" Delta to the thickness I want to end up with ( I always add a little in case I mess up ). I have already installed the 1/2" 10 teeth per inch onto the saw. I start cutting very slow and lightly feed the board into the blade. If you have made sure your fence is straight to the blade...front and back and you slowly feed the wood into the blade, you should have the piece you wanted. As for logs, I built a sled to attach to log to so it does not try to roll when you are cutting. I no longer have the design for the sled, but I know it around on the net somewhere...it might even be on the site.

    Hopes this helps,

      Carl, check this page out from highlandwoodworking. To the right is a video which is very good.
      I have one of these blades on my Delta 14" and it works wonders.

        Thanks for the link Eric.
        For the longer boards use an out feed roller to support the work.

            I think a 10 tooth per inch blade is a bit small for resawing. I use a 1/2", 3 tooth per inch myself. The reason for the fewer teeeth per inch is demonstrated in the attached video.

              I can't seem to get a definitive answer as to which side of the wood do you make your slices. In the above video the thin slices he is cutting is to the left of the blade. I have seen many videos where it's to the right of the blade. The only thing I don't like about that is if the blade wanders slightly it could exit out of the wood. Not sure if there is a right or wrong way or is it just a matter of preference. Any pros or cons to doing this either way?

                I think you are right it makes perfect sense ,I have been working making 4'
                roller conveyor for the outside edge of my bandsaw w/ mini rollers real close all the way in the 4' the whole assembly would be about 20 " wide sled about 12" wide to attach log to fastened the right side of the log bottom and edge,while free handing first cut then go to corrected fence and cut desired thickness's ,I was hoping to see what others have done ,or hear from someone who does it ,Iv'e seem several posts about resawing on the sight,but no explaination s or real details ,don't want to reinvent the wheel any details good or bad would be helpful,And I think you are also right about T.P.I. I bought timberwolf 3/4" and 1/2" blades 3 tpi works great resawing blocks or slabs ,logs present a totally different chalange. Any help would be appreciated and I am sure help others too!

                        Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                        Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                        Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                        Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                        I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                        Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
