Free cuts will always be straight… well as straight as the operator can push it anyway :-) It sounds like you have a tracking issue. Maybe the blade changed position on the wheels for some reason? You don’t say how your sled is made but, if it rides in the miter slot, you probably need to adjust your table or if it rides on the fence you probably need to adjust that. Good luck with it. Bandsaws are great when they cooperate but they can be frustrating buggers too…
