Worth the expense
A great blade worth the cost. Really enhances the quality of cut especially since I use my bandsaw as a replacement for a tablesaw (about 95%)
I wish I would have bought much earlier
I have had mixed results with various blades in re-sawing woods for my guitars and ukuleles. This blade seems to have eliminated all of my previous problems/failures. In my first test, I sliced a 3/32" slab from a 4 inch piece of walnut. I then moved the fence in and cut a 1/32' slice. That is all I needed to convince myself I had found the blade I always wanted.
I almost exclusively use "exotic" species, Rosewoods, ebony, bubinga, etc. Bandsaw blades don't last long with these materials, and often left a rough surface which required hours of work with scrapers and sandpaper to polish smooth again. I ended up wasting a fair amount of these expensive and rare woods just to smooth the surface. No more. This blade cuts through all woods like butter with an incredibly smooth surface. I just finished milling a piece of snakewood which barely heated up at all and developed NO CRACKS. Was able to rough out a cane handle of snakewood very easily. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH IT. Apparently it can also be resharpened several times.
Wow. What a smooth cut! This thing glides through 12" thick material easily. Used on a powerful saw with great Carter guides all I need to do is sand the piece after re-sawing. Truly amazing.
Purchased for my Rikon 14" bandsaw (my saw is a little underpowered) to see if it could help. Does a great job on thick material. I have only used about 2 dz. times hope it lasts a long time, as the price is not cheap.
A very nice blade ... worth investing
Because it lasts so long, you should seriously consider cleaning the blade occasionally.
