I have a brand new 9” ryobi band saw, nothing special, just for cutting small things, and I’ve tuned this thing 10 times and it does the same thing you’re describing. I can’t cut a straight line in 1/4” pine with the upper guides right on top of the stock. If I try to cut anything thicker, forget it. The blade ends up snaking its way through the board and stops! I’m thinking the blade itself is screwy. I hear the weld every time it goes by. Any thoughts?????
