Fine Woodworking jst sent out a video on bandsaw resawing:

http://www.finewoodworking.com/2007/01/05/set-up-your-bandsaw-for-resawing?source=w1722enl&tp=i-H43-BC-5H1-GjkS7-1o-R2Jn-1c-GjXdP-ucFOS&sourcekey=w1722enl&utm_campaign=fine-woodworking-eletter&utm_source=eletter&utm_medium=eletter&utm_content=fw_eletter&cid=20275&mid=247324703

If you have wondered about doing your own resawing, this is a good primer

For some reason, the forum only allows one URL per message

Gary makes it look easy, which it is not. Having sold wood for over 30 years and resawn many thousands of linear feet of hardwood, my best advice is to practice on scrap and know the limitations of your saw. Good results on small saws are difficult. Don't start out on your best wood. Don't cheap out on blades. Use carbide if your saw is big enough and can handle larger blades. That pays off big time with small straight kerfs.

Like Bob I too have done a good bit of resawing.
Here are a few things that you have to do to help achieve success
A square up the face for the fence and the table
B GOOD BLADE
I use the Lennox 1 2/3 tooth . Too many teeth will not help you

If the saw is not set up well you will be in trouble so do all your basics .

like anything else you have to start somewhere . Take your time but learn your feed cut rate for the blade you are using
Bob has helped me a lot in learning how to resaw

I've had some good success and some not so good success. I have learned that a new/newer blade makes a huge difference. Feed rate for sure makes a difference, and having some help with the 10" tall x 48" long billets is very helpfull too. Not all wood saws the same either.
I will probably never resaw enough to get really good at it, but I have fun when I do it, and try to not be disappointed when my yield is not what I was hoping for.
