Band Saw Tune-Up

You can turn your band saw into an all-purpose, precision workhorse. All you need are some simple tools and a few minutes of time.

A well-tuned band saw can slice thin veneers, make intricate scroll cuts and even cut accurate joints. This article takes you step-by-step through the complete procedure to make sure you get the most out of this versatile tool. We’ll show you how to align the wheels, check the tires, set the blade tension and adjust the tracking. Properly set guides and thrust bearings will keep the blade running straight and true, and squaring up the table to the blade insures square cuts.
