All manufacturers have differing ideas and guidelines for properly setting up the bandsaw. I suggest you thoroughly read those instructions. If you got yours used and they did not have instructions contacting the manufacturer will usually get you a free set. Well What Sizes Do Bandsaws Come In? Bandsaws are measured by the radius of the blade. Most bandsaws start at 9 inches and get bigger from there. Most 9 inch bandsaws are simply a heavy machine you connect securely to your preexisting worktable. There are 12 inch and 16 inch bandsaw tables as well but the grandpappy of them all is the 24 inch bandsaw table. This big boy is a table unto itself. The larger the bandsaw the more you will be able to do with that bandsaw. In addition as the bandsaw gets bigger the price has a strange way of increasing as well. I Have Heard That They Are Dangerous A firearm is dangerous sin the wrong hands. A bandsaw can be dangerous even in the right hands.
See that the fence as well the blade are at 90-degree to table. Choose a section of straight wood of up to three feet length. Draw a line in the center. Cut by hand down the line while maintaining the cut along the center line. Keep feeding at the usual speed. Once you get it straight clutch the wooden peace on the table. Switch off the machine. You already got the desired lead angle of this blade! Using a pencil draw a line straight on the table of bandsaw along the length of wood. With the help of a wrench loosen the bolts on the fence. Adjust angle on the fence alongside the pencil mark of the cut. Tighten the bolts. Now the fence is ready for the right lead angle of your blade. It delivers straight cuts. Fix it once once and keep going.

However the mid-range bandsaw is more of a workhorse that can potentially re-saw up to its maximum capacity. Build quality is an important factor to look out for. Also think about the longevity and repair work. It is preferable to choose a machine that is capable of taking replacement parts by various manufacturers or you would be asking for trouble if spares are no longer available when the model is discontinued. Most 14" bandsaws have ground cast iron tables and many manufacturers now provide oversize rectangular tables. If your bandsaw comes with this table make sure it is accompanied by robust trunnions (table supports/mounting brackets) to compensate for the extra weight. Large sized bandsaws are for more professional woodworkers and are in the range of 17" 19" 21" and 24" models for the professional workshop. 17" bandsaws are popular due to the reasonable pricing. These machines will do fine curve work and are really suitable for resawing.
The full tooth has three cutting edges. It has the top or leading edge and the two sides. The tooth load is created by all edges that cut wood. The tooth width on these type blades are usually twice the width of the body. For instance if the body is.042 then the tooth is usually created to be at least.084. So each tooth is cutting a kerf (path) through the log at least.084. The sides of the tooth are also cutting and adding tooth load. All of the cutting load is distributed into the gullet and most of the stress is at the narrowest place of the band which is the deepest part of the gullet. The body is pulling the tooth through the cut and the tooth is under load and is pried backward in micro amounts and the steel molecules at the narrowest part of the gullet are being stretched and being put under great stress. The bandsaw steel is for basic understanding a spring or spring steel. I say this because it has the ability to stretch a certain distance and return to its original shape.
