Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw blade drift

I saw or read somewhere an article on combatting bandsaw cutting drift by adjusting the blade tracking, as opposed to the industry-accepted method of adjusting the fence. I have searched but I can’t seem to find that article. If someone knows the article I’m talking about, could you point me to it please? It would be much appreciated. Thank you.

It seems like I remember Scott Phillips, of Amer. Woodshop, talk about that…

IIRC, he said if you have the blade IN THE CENTER of the tires, and a good blade, it should not drift.

... and he liked Delta blades… (yeah, I know…)

Thanks Joe. Turns out it was Michael Fortune (Thanks Fussy). It was also mentioned in Stefang's blog
