      Scotia for sawing wet turning blanks, you would be better/best off with the ½” band and 3 teeth per inch, I many others use the “turners band” it has a bit wider set and works best with wet wood, just for your information, hope it will help when you do need it.

      Have fun and take care

        Do you really think he can tension a 1/2'' blade sufficiently to rip 8'' thick on that plastic wheel machine?

          i have my doubts on that too. i would contact tuff tooth and ask them about a 1/4 blade maybe 3/8 at the most

            Thanks! No doubt it doesnt cut corners at all... But its fine for me

            And i cranked the tension on, nothings wobbling or warping and its cutting great

            i will order your blade recomendations, i know it will corner alot better

            i didnt have a bandsaw till now so its a 100% improvement for me

            when i finish the motor mount i can post a video of the wheels and blade while its resawing 8 inch oak.

                All the tension you apply is load on the bushings in the plastic wheel. At least with a 10'' throat it is less likely to compress the frame than a 14''.
