Thank you all

I posted a couple of months ago about bandsaw issues. The tips and books recommended here helped greatly. Tonight, I ran the saw for almost 3 hours cutting material for scenery for my children's school.
Without the help of the people here it would not have been possible. The saw cut wood like it was a stick of butter.

Congrats.
I must (shamefully) admit, my bandsaw took a bite out of my finger tonight. I really do try to be careful. I have lots of good methods for feeding wood safely on all my machines. I was changing the blade to a wide resaw. It was tracking right and was singing on some part of the guide post. I reached in like an idiot to try and tweak the sheet metal while she was in full spin and nick my finger.
I need to remember to be afraid whenever that motor is running not just while I am pushing wood through the blade.
A band-aid and all good now but could have been a lot worse.

Glad it wasn't a table saw (without a Saw-stop...LOL) and minor. Good lesson to slow down and think sometimes. Hope it works for you.
We can be dangerous.

I have a Saw Stop. I guess I need a band-saw stop.

Yeah. That will be coming next if they get their way about it. Need an extra finger for a second chance before it matters.
