this is a great video. Lots of good information and well taught. I have the same Laguna Bandsaw and use Laguna blades. The saw has a gauge in side the upper wheel housing that is used for tensioning. I wonder if other bandsaws have the same blade. Why does George use the blades he uses?
Hello Richard. George and I have both had good luck with Timberwolf blades. I have also used Laguna blades and have had a good experience with those as well. You can’t go wrong with either one of those.

what is a good cleaner to use on the blade and rubber on the wheel?
what is a plastic blanking block on a Laguna 14-12
what would the problem BE WITH CUTTING THE VENEER BETWEEN THE BLADE AND THE FENCE?
There is an article detailing construction of the single point contact fence on the site here. https://www.wwgoa.com/article/easy-resawing/
Hello from Waco, Texas. Thanks for the good content! I’m ready to make skinny boards!
I have a 14″ Powermatic band saw that does not have the quick relief and blade tighten bar on the back. Is it possible to by an aftermarket bar for my bandsaw?
why is it important to have veneer on outside – you will have to re-adjust every cut. if feed on inside then no re-adjusting necessary…but I am sure I am missing something!
You are working with short boards. What tips/tricks would you recommend if you wanted to work with (say) 6 foot boards?
What type push took are you using? Does it have a hook?
why do bandsaws not have a riving knife like a table saw?
If you measured that board just cut after the angle was adjusted would the two ends be equal.?? Thanks
who makes that fence?
When re-sawing, would using a magnetic fingerboard to hold the bottom of the board next to the fence make any difference over not using one?

Watching someone resaw the right way is always better then trial and error!
Should you take the tension off of the blade when not using the saw? Watching from Holtwood, Pa
how many differnt bandsaw blades are there?
I have a new Laguna 14″ bandsaw and for the life of me I can’t correct my resawing problems. I use a 5/8″ 4 TPI blade. I have corrected for drift and tried using both single point or the fence. I can get it to work with soft woods like pine. But when cutting maple or walnut it drifts off center or I get a curve (is that a barrel cut?).
Blade drift is a problem

Larry from West Bend WI How do you sharpen the pin on a marking gauge
I had to cut my walnut tree down and I want to cut some of the smaller limbs into short planks. Can I do that on a band saw? I have not gotten one yet and would also ask which saw would be the best for that and other work like that?
I’m from Iowa and always enjoy these informative programs.
No comment other than looking forward to learning
what is the issue indicated by the symptom of the Timber wolf blade bending and making a curved cut (top to bottom)
Good morning from Thailand
If you do not see any drift with your blade and saw, is there any reason/need for a single-contact fence?
Looking forward to it.
Good timely subject
observing from PA.
Where on the tire do you prefere the blade or teeth?
I have an old Shop Smith Mark 5 with 11 inch band saw, use it all the time but likely needs a good cleaning and greasing

I”m from South Pasadena California
do you re sharpen your own blades?
Can you discuss blade tension?
How thin can you reasonable expect to resaw using a band saw? Does this vary by wood species or height of the cut?
Do you prefer to cut the piece on the inside next to the fence or outside away from the fence?
Looking forward to it as usual.
Learning more about a bandsaw
looking forward to this class, need help
Vt again, have re-sawn a lot lately, but I always learn more from your video’s
Are you able to resaw with a 10″ band saw (I have a Rikon 70-305)?
Interested in your technique
Hi from Iowa
Enjoy watching a professional.

I’ll be there.
Can you resaw dimensional flat dawn lumber to create 1/4 sawn material? Or is table saw better?
Assuming a budget of $3,000 what would be your choice of a bandsaw? It would be for resaw and other shop duties.
Looking forward hope this clears up all the different videos that seem to counerdict each other
how do I get to see and hear the live program – which was supposed to start at 7:00pm?
We start at 7 PM CST – central time – which is in about 45 minutes.
after building my glide for the bansaw my wife thought it was a corner shelf for her.. tks gorge for all the tips.
Since I won’t be able to attend but can see that recordings remain available, I’ll add my one question. Namely, recommended tips when going from raw logs? I recently cut a log into slabs and have much more width variation than I expected. My plan is to plane before completing the split of the slabs further.
Will this be available as a recording afterwards? I planned to attend but am called away to something more urgent.
Thank you for your tutorials and the knowledge sharred that makes my woodworking experience so enjoyable. I look forward to todays live web event.

I have a 17inc bansaw that is 110 or 220 , I have been using it as a 110, but I fell like if I try to cut anything 3ft long or taller then 10″ I’m going to pop the 110 converter.. .. I plane on using it to re-saw big pieces and smaller one. and I have 4 different blades for other work. should I just convert it to the 220?if so will it be harder to cut smaller pieces?
When do you know you are over loading the saw?
Looking forward to the class
I am learning so, so much since becoming a member!
would like to see a plan for sawing a circle on the band saw. If no plan available, give dimensions on the air.
Thank you and hope to able to watch
Hope to view it
Looking forward to it.
What is the minimum size blade and tooth count for resawing?
