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.
In the case of woodworking bandsaws variable speed is not usually an issue. However when cutting hard plastic or metal having a lower speed available can be a good feature. Additional Features All bandsaws have tables. The table is the large flat surface that supports the wood when you are using the saw. The table should be cast-iron steel or aluminum alloy and ideally should be capable of tilting generally up to 45-degrees for angled cuts. In many instances the table will measure about 16" square and in the best of all possible worlds would have a miter track as part of its standard equipment. Maintenance Issues Because there are so many moving parts in a bandsaw it is important to keep those parts as clean as possible for smooth movement and accuracy.

The bench mounted units being smaller are something a woodworking hobbiest is more likely to have. The floor stand models with larger motors and more options are also generally better built much heavier and sturdier. With bandsaws the heavier and sturdier frame will definitely lead to more accurate consistent cuts. Believe me with a bandsaw vibration is NOT your friend. Cutting Capability In reference to cutting size the two issues to consider with a specific model are: The DEPTH of the cut (the distance from the table to the upper blade guides) The Saws THROAT depth (distance from the blade itself to the vertical frame section of the body of the saw) The DEPTH of the cut determines the thickness of stock that can be cut using that bandsaw.
