Resaw King or WoodMaster CT

  Re: Resaw King or WoodMaster CT by jussi (I picked up a Laguna...)
I am on my second 1” CT Woodmaster. The previous one lasted about 3 years having re-sawn a lot of hard hard wood. I would sharpen it myself. Not hard to do. It gave up the ghost after about 5 sharpenings.

Derek, how did you go about sharpening your CT?

John, I use a Dremel with a diamond wheel. The latter are very cheap and available on eBay.

All you need do is touch the back of the blade to remove the wear. I do this freehand. A blade for my Hammer N4400 (18”) takes about 30 minutes.

There are a number of videos on YouTube illustrating this process.

Interesting.  I have done this on cheap blades I use for cutting dirty turning blanks... it's quick and easy and I was never too picky on blades that would be significantly dulled after just a few minutes of use.  If my resaw king ever gets dull, I'll try this before sending it out for sharpening.

Thanks for all the replies. I think I’ve decided to go with resaw king since many places that carry it offer free shipping which offsets much of the savings from the wood master.

My saw says the max width is 1-1/4” and the guy from laguna I emailed suggested that as well but I notice many here go with 1”. Is there any reason I shouldn’t go with the 1 1/4”. As I understand it larger width equals better resaw results. Again I have a laguna LT 16HD with 4.5HP motor.

I would stick with the 1" blade.  It will do everything you want and your saw will likely be able to apply 25 ksi tension to it.  It might not be able to with a 1-1/4" blade.  If you are set on the 1-1/4" blade I would verify it can tension a blade that wide before spending the money.  But again, the 1" blade will do anything you want.

Thanks John.  I'll order the 1".

Any recommendations on tension gauge.  Alot of them are pretty pricey and I'm not looking to spend a few hundred on one.

You don't need a tension gauge. All you need is a set of calipers; digital or dial. Measure the strain rate and you can convert to stress based on Young's Modulus.

I used this method to correlate the gauge on my MM16 and it's pretty close. I use 1-1/4 Lenox Woodmaster C carbon blades and it will tension them easily to 25 ksi.

agree with the 1" blade vs the 1.25. i use an iturra tension gauge to set a 1" resaw king to 29k psi on my mm16 without a problem -
