Blade drift is normal on any bandsaw. Thats why bandsaw fences are supposed to have an adjustable angle to account for blade drift. Another option is to set up a resaw post that acts as a pivoting point so you can angle the stock and account for drift as you cut.

Even the best bandsaw will have blade drift. And every blade you put on it will have a different drift angle depending on the set of the teeth, width of the blade, etc.

-- Happy woodworking!
