To do that job (it's called re-sawing or deep ripping) you need a very coarse blade, no more than 3 TPI. This is because the gullets need to carry away a lot of sawdust, so they need to be big. If you try to do the job with a finer blade, the (small) gullets get clogged and cutting stalls.thetyreman":38cgpcah said:do you think it would cope with say a 120mm wide piece that's 19mm thick? I want to cut it down into two 7 or 8 mm thick pieces, but keep that width? from what you are saying it sounds like it might be ok, I am still wondering if this is a worthwhile purchase for me.
