WM Resaw attachment
« on: June 17, 2014, 05:56:18 PM »
Has anyone here used the resaw attachment?  I have an LT40 hydraulic.  A customer just called, he wants some 2in. cherry resawed to in for some Shaker boxes he is making.  He will then plane them to 3/8 in.
I am not seriously looking to spend $2500 at this time, but was wondering if anyone on FF has experience with it. It can also cut lapped siding and shingles apparently.  Thanks

Sounds like you want to build an Arky Resaw Jig

Seems like it'd work fine to do what you want to do and be a lot cheaper...

John:
Are you sure about the dimensions you mentioned?
I have sawed some cherry for Shaker boxes and the customer wanted 5/32" for the sides and 5/16" for the tops and bottoms.
As an FYI the resaws attachement and the SLR are two different accessories.
I have an SLR which I used to cut shakes and can be used to cut sideing.  I do not have a resaws attachment and I do not know if you can cut siding or shakes with one of those.
Yes sawing 5/32" thick with a 3/32" kerf make a lot of sawdust.

I have the resaw attachment and it does a decent job. I would not want to do resawing on a regular basis with it but for what I bought it for it does fine. You can do lap siding with it, all you have to do is tilt the bed and you will be making two pieces at a time.
Two LT70s and to much other support equipment to mention.

If the job pays for the 30 odd minutes to set it up and put away then it does a really good job.I have used mine to turn cants into weather boards, cut shingles,[same as weather boards but much thinner and then docked to length], and recently to cut 6mm [1/4"] for a laminated serpentine hand rail. Mine came with the WM when i bought it 2nd hand. I dont think I would pay too much to buy one as an extra unless you got a lot of resaw jobs to do.

What type blades might one consider when doing a resaw job?

How about hard dry wood vs non-dried wood?

What about the quality of the saw tracks?

Because I sharpen and reset my own blades I only keep 1 profile and that is WM 10 degree 1 1/2  doublehards and a couple of stellite tipped.The double hards saw almost every thing I saw and if they dont [and thats rare] then stellite does.
