Crap, I would love to join but I am working, and we are having a major release this weekend so I know I am going to be crushed.  However, I might get lucky and all will go smooth, and I will be able to join.  I just bout the Laguna 1412, and have a question about re-sawing, and also some opinions on blade types (not brands).

Hi Comp,

Although I wasn't on line and didn't notice this until it was too late I do have a question you may be able to answer for me?

I am actually building a wooden band saw at the moment (From Matthias Wandels plans) and am looking on line for a 105 inch blade. 

Below are a few I have found on line. I am in Ireland but seems that I will be ordering from USA as I cant find much over here that is suitable.  I'm looking for two blades one for ripping and the other for fine scrolling work. I haven't figured out what "6h" "10r" "6 skip" "14r" etc means? For example I believe "6h" means 6 teeth per inch but I do not know what the H stands for?

do you reckon any of the below are suitable? what do you think of the brands? im pretty lost when it come to band saws so is there anything else i could be missing?

Details about  All Pro Band Saw Blade 105" x 1/4" x .025" x 6H

Details about  All Pro Band Saw Blade 105" x 3/16" x .025" x 10R

Details about  Olson Saw 14505 Band Saw Blade, 105" 6 skip

Details about  All Pro Band Saw Blade 105" x 1/8" x .025" x 14R

 

Thanks, Jack.

can't say anything about the blades as I have never used the brand yes some call it a the hook or TPI I would suggest getting blades local if possible especially the 1/8" one's as they can break on welded area easy and can be rewelded or replaced.

Maybe you can catch up with the ones that couldn't make it with this thread... As for myself, I've used a Delta bandsaw that my brother, my dad and I split three ways buying it, but I haven't used it in 10 years probably, couldn't even tell you how to turn it on, I know next to nothing about them. Also, my son insisted we go outside and throw rocks in the creek, so that's what we did, and I will admit I would choose that over a chat any day.
