Thanks everyone for the replies, but here is the problem. I have done literally everything suggested, except buy new blades. The blade in the saw now is new and clean and sharp. The problem first started with a different, also fairly new and clean blade.

One thing I have noted is that when the top bearings are lowered to just an inch or so it will cut straight, but anything higher than that and it deflects the instant the blade hits the wood. I can’t adjust one side bearing any closer, and it is about 3/32 away from the blade, on the side that the blade deflects to. Again, with a straight-on cut I would not think this would matter. Resawing is one of the big reasons I got a band saw.

Do I need new guides?
