A question for @woodtechs or other experienced people:
I have some big 50mm boards of ash that I need to rip down in ~10mm strips. The table saw barely copes; the belt slips or the motor stalls, or it cuts so slowly the wood burns. Meanwhile I lose 3mm of material for every cut. I think the bandsaw is the better tool for the job, but I don’t want to drag the wood down if we don’t have an appropriate blade. I think I’d ideally want as wide a blade as possible, and coarser than 4tpi? But honestly I just don’t know.
So, will the current blade on the bandsaw handle this job?
If not, do we have a ripping blade?
If so, can anyone help me fit it?
If not, can we get one?
Thanks in advance
