!/2” blade is too big for 12” wheels. 3/8” will work better and resaw fine. Go to Fine Woodworking and look up the article”Five Tips To Better Bandsawing” by Michael Fortune, set up your saw EXACTLY AS HE SAYS, make sure you have a sharp blade, and go to work. Blades don’t last forever, so go to for sharpening tips and tons of info on anything to do with wood. Don’t change tires, untill you have eliminated other problems. You will save much grief. You will find that tension doesn’t need to be that high.
Read, learn, enjoy.
