Today I put on the new Timberwolf band saw blade I bought at the woodshow last Saturday. Tensioning it was a bit tricky, but after a few tries and playing around with it i finally got it. I wanted to try making a lock out of a big chunk of walnut that was given to me. I wanted to have a book matched face. So I set my new Kreg fence to just over half inch. The faces finish at 3/8. The new blade cut through the 3” walnut very easy. I was surprised. I have never had a band saw that cut as good as this.

I am glad that it worked out for you. I have really been impressed with their blades. Nothing like a fresh blade on any tool to add to the amazment that it worked as planned.

The timberwolf blades are excellent. They are worth every penny. I have a Powermatic bandsaw and added a Kreg fence and timberwolf blases. What a difference!

I think that you will find the blades are easy to tension.

Start with the setting a little loose and you will see the blade vibrate while the saw is running. Tightening up the blade will eventually cause it to stop. Continue tightening and it will hit a point that it vibrates again. When it starts to vibrate again just back off the tension a little to make it stop and at that point you have it adjusted.

Finish off by setting all the guides according to the blade.
