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.
A board with one square edge and side is necessary. Problem is most woodworkers dont have a clue how to do this. Successful resawing calls for nothing more complicated than appropriate blade selection adequate tension setting the fence and proper stock control. Blade Selection: As you saw through very thick stock you put a lot of pressure on every part of the blade engaged in the cut. Each saw tooth shaves out waste. Blades with 3 teeth per inch (tpi) have large gullets which have room for a lot of waste. Thrust bearings support the blade above and below. During the actual cut only the blades stiffness or "beam strength" will keep the cut proceeding straight and free of wander. Its my experience that a quality 1/2" 3-tooth blade gives good results. I tried wider blades with no increase in efficiency.

This is why there is a time-tested and woodworker-specialized method for safely uncoiling your bandsaw blades. Said method is as follows: throw the blade on the ground. Well more specifically if your blade is packaged or tied carefully unpackage or untie it while maintaining its coil. With a firm grip on the blade throw it away from your body and into an open space. The blade will violently uncoil and fall to the floor from where you can peacefully collect it. You may also wear gloves during this process - they will eliminate the possibility of cut hands and fingers. Installing Your New Blade: Thread the new blade back through the slots on the saw table and situate the blade around and running through the center of the upper and lower blade-wheels.
