@LORENZOJOSE …by funny coincidence, I just happened upon an upholsterer’s comment that he cuts thick foam on his bandsaw. I just tried 4″ high density foam on my saw, which happened to have a 3/4″ resaw blade mounted (3-4 tpi). It worked beautifully. Other than lung protection, I cannot think of any safety issues (but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any.) It isn’t fibrous, so I can’t pull out fibers that would snag a finger. It doesn’t seem to act in a grabby way that could cause it to suddenly be sucked down into the blade along with a hand. Not sure, but it seems okay. If so, this is the route I’m going to take. Beautiful, clean cuts.
