No offense intended to those who already
have woodworking completely figured out,
but sometimes my experience has yielded
different views.

I’ve had a few saw with fussy tracking where
I was never able to just crank on the tension
and adjust the tracking after. I never made
a scientific study of the issue but I have
read on a book on band saws before. There
are lots of things that can be a little off on
a band saw and even saws in apparently good
condition, particularly smaller ones, can have
little quirks.

Creeping up on the tension while tweaking the
tilt knob has worked for me in some of these
tracking situations.

I’m getting tired of being anitpicked here by for
having an opinion that differs from some
expert-du-jour with YouTube channel.

I’m sorry to see the forum go this way, but that’s
what I see and I’m probably going to stop
participating much.
