Get yourself a zero clearance plate also (or make one of thin door skin). This will keep those small pieces from falling into the guides.

If your lower guides are the roller variety and they look like they are, that is your problem. a “wedge” shaped piece of wood gets wedged in between the blade and roller and clamps onto the blade causing it to snap. Replace the lower guides with cool blocks if the guide will accept them.

Well, that was the second time it happened. The first time nothing fell through the hole I was re-sawing. I suspect its that bottom roller too but its never happened before and I’ve had that band saw for three years.

Ron, are talking about these?

Ocean, where are you in the Keys?? Im in Marathon.
