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.
Similarly you must adjust the upper block guides in their forward-back positions centering them to the center of the blades width. In their left-right positions adjust the guide blocks to only faintly touch the blade. Adjust the lower blade guides in the same manner. Testing: And at that your bandsaw blade removal and reinstallation is almost complete. The last step of the procedure is simply testing the sucker out. Plug-in and engage your bandsaw. Observe the blade - ensure it doesnt vibrate or fall out of center. In the event the blade does vibrate or fall out of center simply re-tension and re-track the blade until it spins properly. Im often asked what sort of blades I use on my bandsaw. And the answer is - it depends.

Next to release the blade loosen each set of the bandsaws blade guides. Making enough space to allow for the simplest reinstallation of your new blade loosen the upper ball bearing guide and the upper block guides. Block guides must be loosened at all four directions - left-right and forward-back. Following this additionally loosen the lower blade guides beneath the saw table. Each blade guide has an adjustment knob to make this step a bit simpler. Next using the tension wheel (knob) release the tension on the blade. Once tension is adequately released you should be able to slide the blade safely from the blade-wheel through the slot in the saw table. Carefully recoil the blade and tie it off to prevent the thing from becoming an explosive blade disaster. Making Friends With Your New Blade: Opening your new bandsaw blade can also become an explosive blade disaster.
So my standard ripping blade is 3TPI Skip tooth. That means the teeth are the size they would be if it were 6TPI but every other one is missing. This means the gullets are easily able to carry away the sawdust and I get a smooth and clean cut. If we are crosscutting however or using much thinner material then 3TPI is simply too coarse to get a smooth cut. Here the sawdust is finer and we can get away with smaller gullets without them getting clogged up. 6 8 or 12 TPI may be more suitable. If cutting sheet metal like brass that TPI count may go up to 24. That would still give us 3 teeth in 1/8" material. I recommend that when buying a new blade buy two the same. There is nothing more frustrating than breaking a blade and having to stop whilst a replacement arrives in the post! So I suggest you start with a ½" 3TPI Skip blade for ripping and a ¼" 6TPI for crosscutting and curved work. That should get you through most of your tasks.
