The subject tells it all. These blades aren't all that expensive but
rather that doing trial and error and I am looking for a recommendation
from one of you who has used a thin stock tight curve blade with good
results. My go to blade is a 1/2" wood slicer but it isn't great for
I have not.
I mostly use the no name brands that Laguna tossed in with the sale, the
Laguna Resaw King and Timberwolf. They all perform well, on that saw.
They did not do well as a group on previous saws, Craftsman and Rokon.
If you can buy the brand you are using in the size you want I would say
buy that brand.
Not knowing which saw you have makes the recommendation hard. It has
been my experience that saw blade brand does not matter with better
Laguna, Minimax, older Deltas, etc saws.
Copy cat Asian clone saws tend to be finicky with blade brand and what
works on xyz brand saw may not work well with the same but different xyz
My favorite blade is a 3/16 3 tooth hooked blade. I originally bought
one years ago when I was selling name plaques out of 2x stock and had to
cut out tight curves. Naturally I was too lazy to change blades when
using it for other things and too my delight, this narrow blade worked
fine on about everything I did, even re-sawing. I now have I a 3/8th 3
tooth hooked blade that works fine. Fewer teeth means much faster cuts,
albeit also rougher. You pretty much are going to sand/shape any bs
edges anyway, so the speed and ease of cut is well worth a bit more
roughness. I doubt brand name is all that important, but mine come from
a local saw company and are good quality.
