These can cut 6" deep timber without any trouble and will resaw up to 12" deep but this would mean pushing maximum capacity. While these machines come with plenty of added features such as rack and pinion table tilt rack and pinion table tilt look for quick release blade tension levers. This is a very useful feature. It allows you to simply knock off the bandsaw to detension when you pack it in at the end of a long day and then swing it back to regain the same tension it was left at previously. This makes it much easier to properly maintain the machine. Woodworkers have so many options to choose from these days. Consider your present and future needs when deciding which bandsaw to buy. Saving money in the short term by buying too small a machine will cost you if you want to do quality work in the long run.
Bandsaw Set up This is one of those tools that must be carefully set up and adjusted before using. Read the manual carefully and follow them closely. This is a job that can take time (even a couple of hours) but it is worth it in the long run. There are many fine adjustments that need to be made in order for a bandsaw to operate smoothly and properly. These tasks include setting the blade tension properly as well as setting the blade guides the thrust bearing and the side bearings. Failure to make these adjustments may result in decreased performance as well as making it more likely that the blades will break. Anyone that owns a bandsaw will tell you that properly used and maintained a bandsaw is the perfect addition to any workshop. A bandsaw will quickly take center stage and do the tasks of many of your other power tools. As is such being able to recognize and understand various types of bandsaw blades is as important to your workshop as a good bandsaw itself.

It is only when the prescribed amount is exceeded that it becomes distorted and loses strength. Think of valve springs in a gas/diesel engine. They operate within their ability to extend compress and return every time and run almost forever under harsh conditions. They do not exceed their steels ability to stretch and return. A good understanding of the above two paragraphs is very important to understand an accurate comparison between the swage tooth band and the set tooth that we will discuss below. Now let us look at a set tooth band of .042 thickness: The Kerf of a set tooth band is also two times the thickness. Usually .084 (sometimes more sometimes less). The difference is the set tooth shares the tooth load between 3 teeth. Each tooth is only .042 on the top or the leading edge. The most any tooth can cut is.042 wide. The average that the 3 teeth cut is only .028. The right and left tooth only cut the set amount beyond the body width. Only 2 of the teeth cut on the side and they only have 1 side to create side load which is very minimum. It is so small that I do not consider it to have a side load.
