Once you have it straight hold your piece of wood to the table. Turn off the bandsaw. You have found the lead angle for this blade! With a pencil mark a line on the bandsaw table along the piece of wood. Loosen the fences bolts with a wrench. Set the angle of the fence along the pencil line of the test cut. Tighten your bolts. Your fence is now set for the blades correct lead angle. This gives you straight cuts. Set once and cut. What could be simpler? You may want to practice your feed speed. It is a good idea to mark a line on your intended cut for the first several boards. It just gives you faith that the cut is straight. Running a butchery can be challenging especially in terms of the amount of raw meat that you must keep on your premises.
If you want to resaw a piece of material you need an aggressive blade. The wider a blade width is the more stability you will get and the more straight the cut will be. A more narrow blade will give a tighter cut that is perfect for a more detailed project. As a rule of thumb use the widest blade your project can handle. This adds safety to your project. As is obvious safety should always be your first concern. While you want a good and proper job to be done you also need to make sure you use the proper bandsaw blade. Only with the proper bandsaw blade can you be assured of your safety but also the more proper a bandsaw blade is for the task at hand the better the cut. Despite the relative simplicity of changing the blades on our miter and circ saws not all upkeep procedures for our woodworking equipment are created equally.
