14” is the size of your wheels. From blade to frame on the left probably measure something around 13 1/2 inches. It’s a 14” saw because it can cut something almost 14” wide, but not something 14” tall. 6” cut height sounds about right for that saw. My previous saw, Craftsman 14” saw! Would cut 8” height. My current 17” saw will cut 12” tall.

Look for a YouTube video by Alex Snodgrass on bandsaw tuning. It helped me a lot with bandsaw tuning and use. If you’ve used the saw at that tension and didn’t break the blade or the saw, it’s not too tight.

Bill’s got it on the size. Nothing to do with resaw height, just the wheel size.

For tension, forget the gauge. 1/8” movement when you push on it sounds about right. Another way to set it is by “flutter”. Loosen tension (keep enough to avoid blade slippage) and turn the saw on. You’ll be able to see the blade fluttering due to vibration. Gradually tighten the tension until it stops fluttering then give it a little more.

Thanks guys!

Another question:
Does anyone know the screw size for the 4 screws on the sides of the table where you mount a fence too?

EDIT: Found out its a 1/4” x 28.. 1 1/4”..

Have your say...
