Poor blade design.
I Bought one of these to resaw a very expensive piece of 8" wide ebony. The blade cut pretty nice, but when I got about halfway throught he boad the blade cut therough the side of the board. The blade was defective and caused a serious belly cut which ruined a $275 special board that was to be the back and sides of an acoustic guitar. Laguna said there was a bad batch of blades and they would gladly replace the blade, but would do nothing about reimbursing me for the wood their blade ruined. I did a test cut on a piece of cedar before cutting the ebony, but the problem didn't present itself on the softer wood. I will never use a Laguna product again. The cheap Timberwolf blades I usually use cut great, a blade costing six times as much shouldn't have been so dissapointing.
I put this blade on a 14" Powermatic band saw which is a good saw but tends to drift when resawing thick hardwood with a 1/2" steel blade. With other blades, the saw would have to be tuned exactly in order to cut straight. With the 3/4" carbide Laguna blade, it cuts as straight as a table saw. I have ALREADY recommended this blade to a friend. So far (5 months), no sign that the blade strains the motor.
for resawing very smooth cut and very smooth running
This blade is amazing
This blade rips through wood that barely fit through my 17" band saw. It cut like "Butta"
very little waste on resawing expensive exotic hardwoods
