Post: RE: Resawing on bandsaw

That suggestion makes me want to go try it right now! Resawing has always felt clumsy to me, even with good result. Time to reread Duginske’s book too. Thanks. Earl

It’s a cousin to the Ryobi BT-3000. Sliding table was pretty cool, but no miter slot. Still has a loyal following, and many home-brew jigs have been designed for it. I think the user forum is now S...
