Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw

Hello. I have a new blade I bought, and while my cousin was using it to cut a large cylinder he turned the blade cought the wood and put a bend in the blade. It doesn’t have a dramatic kink in it, just a bend. But while it tracks on the saw, whenever the bent spot rides the wheel it moves foward on the wheel and then back to centre. I am wondering if there is a way to fix the blade so its still usable? Can I just counter bend the spot to try to remove it? Any advice or experience would be appreciated.

Thanks for the advice. I’ll see how the blade works in the saw again. I think I may still be able to use it but like you said, perhaps only for rough work. And if its not usable, then I will use it for a bowsaw.

True, thanks again for the help. I’ve only snapped one blade and it was at school, I remember being shocked but like you said nothing really happened.
