Anyone know what would cause “ripple-like” cuts? I installed a new Laguna Resaw master on my bandsaw today and it’s producing some really nasty looking ripples on the board. I thought it’d be a tension issue but I’ve increased it considerably and the ripples haven’t gone away. Anyone have any ideas on a solution or what would cause this? It’s running on a JET 18” bandsaw.

I appreciate any help/tips offered.

Can you post a pic of the ripples? Resawing doesn’t give you a smooth surface and some amount of rippling is normal.
