OK – New member here. I have been watching all of the good thoughts and helpful hints and found myself coming back for more. Question: I have a 12” Jet bandsaw w/ a 1/4”-6 TPI alternating tooth blade. I am trying to crosscut a 3” piece of hard maple w/o success. The blade will bow to my left (as I feed) and I can’t get a straight cut. I have made all of the adjustments per the Jet manual but not sure about tension. New the the bandsaw and looking for tips. – Thanks.

I am sorry I can’t help you with the band saw, as I do not own one, well at least one that works. But I did want to welcome you to LJ’s.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
