So I bought a new Olson Flexback 1/2 bandsaw blade, and I can see a slight bend in 1 small area of the blade. When running it kind of jumps forward the tinest bit…. so is there a way to fix this? Is the blade faulty? Is the tenson to much/ too little?

I check the alignment of the wheels, the guides, and the blade is tracking correctly. The only thing that has not been changed out on the saw are the tires, they are stock, but I assume they would not bend a blade…

Thoughts? I have not really even used the blade, since it is not working properly.

The bend looks to be about 3-4 inches of the blade.
