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. They require more professional attention. This Professional attention is at a large expense. Want to understand why many people are still big believers in bandsaw mills? Lets explore the subject. In the past do-it-yourselfers who were unsatisfied with the lumber they found at the big box stores or their local sawmill would have had few options. However those days are gone. These days its possible to find a portable sawmill that you can set up and work yourself. But with over 200 companies currently offering these mills how do you find the one that best fits your needs? The right mill for you will depend on how much milling you intend to do and will take into consideration such things as the size of the logs. Also running a portable sawmill is a demanding job and youll need to consider how much effort from you is required to run the machine.
Invest the time to do your research and make a wise decision. A bandsaw is more versatile than it appears at first glance. The bandsaw is one of those specialty power tools that does a job that no other tool can do as well. In the case of the bandsaw that job happens to be cutting detailed and accurate curves in wood or metal. The fact of the matter is a good bandsaw has more uses than simply cutting curves. In a home shop it can be used for: resawing thin strips from larger pieces of wood ripping small pieces of stock even cutting tenons and some rabbets However once you start looking at the options you realize that there are a variety of styles and sizes available. So... how to choose the best model for your needs? Bandsaw Type These saws fall into two main categories: floor stand models (also called cabinet models) and bench top models. The floor stand models generally larger in size are what you would probably find in professional shops.

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.
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.
