General International’s 90-170B, in addition to all six of such analyze saws, did a fine career of common rip- and curve-cutting having a 1/4″ blade. But, a saw designed for tall resawing in addition to general slicing must fulfill three major standards for me personally: the blade manuals needs to be easy to adapt (since you’ll wish to change to and fro between large resaw or thin cutting blades) the rip fence and has should aid in resawing and the motor must be gutsy enough to maintain the blade rotating through wide carry.
