Re-Saw Bandsaw

In an effort to further conserve resources and save time, Grain has just purchased a new Jet Bandsaw. This saw enables us to re-saw 1/4″ planks from a 6″ wide board. In the past, we would have to rip the board lengthwise in order to get a 3″ wide plank. We could then re-saw it on the tablesaw. This new tool will save us sawing time because we eliminate a cut, saves us wood because the blades kerf, or thickness, is much less then the tablesaw blade, and in the end, will help us to build a better board by eliminating some glue joints.
