blade clarification

Of course *PIC* ()

The blades I get from Misenheimer (Lenox I think or maybe Starret) are 1" x 0.032 3/4 tpi. They told me they weld them up for Woodmiser saws and that is the blade I see on a nearby mill. You apparently use a larger blade which I agree will not fit on a band saw anyone is likely to own. I know little about small mills and erroneously assumed they all used the 0.032" blade. I should have been more specific.

I don't know what saws are common to wood turners but any saw larger than 14" will likely accommodate the blade I use. The tooth pattern is fast and the deep gullets make sawing thick stuff both fast and accurate, the point I intended to make.

I whack 24" lengths from poplar trees, split them with a chain saw, then quarter saw these billets into drawer sides stock. I have sawed hundreds. This blade is so much faster than any other I have used I thought turners might like to know about it.
