If regrinding is not a viable option then I would use them in cedar, or if you have that "suspect" log that just has to be sawn and the odds are decent of finding hidden treasure then open them up with a band that has no real other value to you, nothing to loose if by chance you do strike gold, or iron, steel, ceramic, etc.

25 thou would be fine for a start, that's about where I set all of mine.  You can go more, you can go less, but .025" per side works fine.

Take steps to save steps.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyíre burned, and you canít fix them.  Donít burn the cookies.
