Creating bowl blanks from green wood on the bandsaw can be taxing for standard blades. Many of our customers, happy with our Wood Slicer® Resawing Blade when cutting kiln-dried lumber, have asked us for a worthy blade to handle the difficulties bandsawing green wood.
Our 3/8″ wide WoodTurner’s Bandsaw Blade, with its 3 TPI, alternate set w/raker tooth pattern & stout band thickness of .032″, is just the blade for the task. The significant tooth set of this blade provides ample room to keep the blade zipping along through dripping wet, kerf-closing, growth-tensioned logs. The deep, rounded, hook-toothed gullets allow chips to be easily removed from the kerf enabling quick, aggressive cuts. The hardened teeth (RC64-65) stand up to dulling bark & log grime (we recommend removing as much grit as possible from your stock before cutting with any blade). The 3/8″ wide band allows a cutting radius as small as 1-1/2″.
