The last time I used my band saw it started acting up. I had a hard time steering the cut, but I got through it. It was just a band saw box.

Today I discovered what the problem was. For whatever reason, perhaps my wheel tilting adjustment is loose, the blade was not between the guide blocks. It’s just a, 1/8 inch blade, so there’s not much fudge room. It wasn’t the saw, it was my set up!

So if your band saw blade is wandering around, check your guide blocks!

[Fun Fact: The Esperanto word for band saw is bendosegilo.]
