The reason there is not a side load is the angle of the side of the tooth. The tooth is bent or set at such a sharp angle on the side that only the top corner of about.010 touches the wood fiber. Of course if you run your band excessively dull it does take on more side load. Now compare the gullet stretch per tooth. Remember both band bodies are .042. The set tooth has the total kerf stress divided between 3 teeth. The swaged full tooth carries the entire kerf stress per tooth plus the side load on 2 sides per tooth. It is easy to understand that the full tooth carries twice the load just because of the top width of .084. Then add the 2 sides of load and we have at least 3 times more tooth load per square inch than the set tooth bands have. What does this mean? From my experience the set tooth pound for pound will perform 2 to 3 times better than a full tooth of the same band width and thickness. This is true even if a special steel is welded to from the full tooth. Let me talk about the body of the band for a bit here. I have spoken of the distortion and how it changes the middle portion of the band to dish on the log side.
The hook tooth blade cuts a 10º rake angle that is highly priced by bandsaw users around the world. (c) Skip Tooth - These are the perfect blades for softer and easier types of materials. This is considered a perfect all-purpose blade. This is also highly prized because it is an excellent blade for resawing. This skip tooth blade cuts a 0º rake angle making it perfect for the average user. These blades are probably the most used by bandsaw users. What It All Means The more teeth your blade has per inch the smoother the cut by the blade you will get. However the smoother the cut the slower the operation actually takes. Most bandsaw users recommend having at least 3 teeth in your material at every turn of the blade. This gives added security to your project keeping you safe from harm.

These are merely approximate indicators so start by moderately tightening the blade which has been placed on the wheels. 2. Tracking the Blade Before you start to plug in the machine make sure the guide blocks and thrust bearings are totally clear of the blade. Rotate the blade wheels by hand. CAUTION: Dont place your finger through the spokes of the wheel. You could severely damage or lose a finger. As it is rotated the blade should move to the center of the rubber tire on the top and hopefully the bottom wheels. If the blade does not seem to center you have to adjust the "top wheel tilt knob" while you hand-turn the wheel. Turn the wheel until you get it tracking on the center of the rubber tires or as close as possible. You may need a bit more tension on the blade but dont overly compress the rubber tires. 3. Adjusting the Guide Blocks/Pins Move the top guide blocks/pins back or forward so the front edges will be right behind the blade teeth.
