I set up the fence a little more carefully this time keeping it parallel to the blade. I cut 3-1/4” thick SYP into 1/4” strips. There was no blade drift. Measurements at one end to the other didn’t vary by more than .003”. Not bad for a Ridgid band saw. I didn’t try resawing anything in the 6 to 10” range because the saw is very under-powered. The only other blade I’ve used was by Lenox and it did have drift.
