3 phase bandsaw
It is my opinion that a good set tooth band with correct curvature that is 1-1/2 wide will outperform dollar for yield a band twice the width at 3 inches that has a full tooth. It is easier to keep the tooth load down on a set tooth band and it is easier to maintain a set tooth band. Full tooth bands require a lot of attention because of the larger tooth load.

Tension: Adequate blade tension reduces the blades tendency to lead erratically under thrust. I have found that the standard tension gauge is not accurate. It is better to use a little more tension than indicated. You can check it by opening up the thrust bearings and lateral guides. Back off both above and below the table so they do not contact the blade. Crank the tension gauge to the desired setting. Give the blade a sideways nudge about halfway between the upper and lower wheels. The blade will deflect easily for a short distance. This sideways movement should be 1/4". If you push harder it will bend farther but there is a distinct point where it quits deflecting easily. If you can deflect more than 1/4" then add tension until this deflection is 1/4".
