    Abrasives can be just as dangerous as a blade.....and 10 times more painfull.

    Dear Soundman and Bruce Bell,
    Thankyou guys for kindly offering those suggestions re: bandsaw/resaw. Still deliberating cost of Hitachi vs. finding a second-hand Makita. I'm cutting Brazilian Rosewood (dalbergia nigra) for guitar backs and sides so each saw kerf costs me around $50 in sawdust!
    Thanks again.
    Cheers,

    BARRY KERR

    If you are doing musical instrument work I wouldn't fiddle about.
    You will be cutting very thin veneers.
    that need to be regular form relitavely expensive material.
    Buy the best you can get & tune the bugger pitch perfect.

    I gather you are upgrading from a normal band saw?

    If you havn't already seen it there was a realy good article on band saw tuning written by an instrument maker in Fine Wood Working a few years ago.
