The following should help you understand the difference between TPI or the number of teeth per inch:
16 TPI blade has the smallest teeth possible. These small blades are made to cut thin slices of woodland, which cannot be thicker than one-half of an inch. The feed rate is exceedingly slow, too.
12 TPI blade is used for precise cuts, however the woodland cannot be thicker than one inch.
8 TPI blade is what most consider the general purpose blade. You can get a exceedingly silky cut as long as the woodland is no more than two inches thick.
Does this seem like a lot of steps?
Do not worry because now you can go ahead and begin cutting your inventory. Do not forget to observe the safety tips above.
Now, let's research into another reason why operating a band‐saw is useful.
Re-sawing is actually one of the hardest tasks to master, but it is also one of the most useful.
Re-sawing a woodland slice is simply cutting a thick slice of woodland into a thinner slice of woodland. You can become more report for your buck by re-sawing lumber in its place of planning it to the thickness you need.
That seems simple‐enough, right?
Consider the following steps on how to usage a band saw to re-saw:
You will need a 3/4 inch wide blade, however we recommend a wider blade to reduce wandering.
You will need a fence that is (at least) as tall as the woodland slice that you will re-saw. We recommend that the woodland fence is slightly taller to increase stability while re-sawing.
Usage a jig to hold the block safely against the fence. This should create it a lot easier to re-saw.
Usage your strength to hold the woodland slice (that you are re-sawing) on the table and against the fence. Ease the woodland slice through the blade with a steady hand. Do not create the mistake of forcing the woodland slice forward, which can cause you to lose control or damage the blade. The key is to let the blade do the work, and push the woodland slice only when the blade has finished cutting.
Rotate off the machine when you are done cutting through the first slice of woodland you are re-sawing. Eliminate the woodland slice, and clean the work station. Readjust the remaining woodland slice over your table, and adjust the fence to get started again.
