    Did a little resawing tonight

    I know, Im incredibly slow
    I started on the cabinet back of my bookcase/elephant display cabinet tonight, (in the background of pic 3).
    Its hard to believe that all that came out of one 8/4 X 11 X 8 board of QS white oak.
    Ill tell you what, the MM with 1 Lennox Tri-Master is kick-butt at resawing!

    Looks good!

    How do you like them Gripper things for feather boards on the bandsaw?

    I've been thinking of getting some for Big Blue.

    Cheers!

    Stu, the Grippers work great on the bandsaw, jointer, and tablesaw. They have incredible holding power. A worth while investment.

    Thanks Bruce.

    The only thing they would work on is Big blue, and the Green Meanie MDF and laminate table on the Phoenix, and an aluminum fence/table on the DeWalt TS. Still, they are on my list.

    Cheers!

    Boy, isn't it nice to have the "Right Tool" for the job? Looks like it worked really well. Sure wish I could power up my "20". Oh well, one of these days.

    How thick did you cut the pieces ?

    I have the Laguna version of that saw with TriMaster and 4 1/2 hp motor.

    It is really amazing what a really great piece of equipment can do.

    Tell us more about how you are going to assemble the back.

    Can we get a better view of that holder/gripper/guide thingy?
    BTW, great results. What blade did you use?

    Bartee, they ended up about 9/16 off the saw. Hopefully they will clean up at or thereabouts. I dont use the MM everyday or even every week but it sure is nice when you need it.

    Frank, I used the Lennox Tri-Master carbide tipped, 3tpi.
    The gripper is really called a Grip-Tite, you can find more info here:
