    I am having a problem with my bandsaw cutting on an angle….What will be causing this? The blade is tracking to the rear, bushing are in the right spot and I am using a 1/4 blade. So why is the blade not cutting straight!!!!!….Need help

      Hi, Mark! There could be a couple causes for this. Check the blade tension. If it doesn’t have enough tension it can flex under cutting pressure, and it won’t cut straight. Make sure the blade is sharp. A dull blade flexes away from the cut, resulting in cuts that aren’t straight. Make sure you’re using the right tooth count. Most bandsaw work on 3/4″ or thicker wood can be done with a 4 tpi blade. If the blade is too fine it won’t cut well. As you make the cuts, be sure you’re allowing the saw to do its job. Don’t push the wood too hard.
