I am currently working on a pair of solid body guitars. The body designs on these guitars require that I “bookmatch” several pieces for joining and lamination.
So a test cut showed the blade was cutting even on top and bottom. However as progress reached the center of the board, the blade suddenly appeared right out of the side of the board. The cut was tracking perfectly on the top and bottom. Upon inspection the board was scooped gradually starting 2” into the cut.
Neither of us has ever seen this before. We brought up the blade tension (approaching maximum) and ran another small piece (cherry) it also scooped.
Is there an adjustment we can make to avoid this? This is only the second use of the blade, so it should be plenty sharp. His saw is a Delta 14 bandsaw Model #28 475x (with a 6” throat expander)
I appreciate your help!
