Ripping/Re-Sawing

For ripping/re-sawing thicker stock a coarse tooth pitch is generally used with 1.3tpi, 2tpi and 3tpi being the most popular.

The 1.3tpi and 2tpi are very aggressive blades so are only suitable for very thick stock and for bandsaws that can cope with the amount of tension they require.
1.3tpi is suitable for cutting wood from 100mm thick and above, 2tpi for wood from 50mm thick and above and 3tpi from 25mm thick and above.

For straight cutting, wider blades are usually used but if your bandsaw struggles to tension wide blades, narrower ones can also be used and there’s no reason why a properly tensioned 3/8” blade won’t give accurate straight cuts in thick stock.

For seasoned wood the SuperTuff Fastcut and SuperTuff Premium Vari-Tooth can also be used with the advantage of producing less waste than other coarse tooth pitched blades. 

For cutting green and seasoned wood the following ranges are suitable: SuperTuff Sabrecut, SuperTuff Premium, SuperTuff Carbon, M42.
