I just started to resaw my first piece.on a Jet 18" Band saw with a
Timberwolf Resaw Blade. It is a 6" wide x 17"long x 2" thick
piece of white oak. I am trying to resaw this into two 1" thick pieces of
stock. My problem is approx 4" into the cut the saw kerf collapsed on the
blade - end of operation. What do you recommend for material, tools or
techniques to keep the kerf open behind the blade?? A googe search on the
group and the web doesn't turn up any useful info.
Thank You in advance for your help.
I like thin cardboard, like the kind used for cereal boxes. It'll go bottom
to top in the kerf even at full depth, which a simple wedge won't. Double
it, stuff and go.
Which begs the issue on your oak, which is apparently badly case-hardened,
and my not be suitable in any case after resawing.
