Handsome is as does. It might just be a visual flaw. Run something you
have good control of and see what happens.
Are you saying that this shop is not part of an IA program during the day?
If there's day work going on, the splitter's probably OK. If not, time to
get with the instructor and tune the machine. The folks at the wood hobby
shop on base used to love it when the co-pilot and I would bring in a mess
of wood to prepare, because we left the planer, jointer and bandsaw in
adjustment and with sharp blades.
At school the "advanced" woods class performed most standard maintenance. I
checked their work. Rather imagine that's the case where you are.
Bring it to the attention of the shop teacher. It should be an easy
matter to align it properly.
I would not rip timber without a splitter. Having a cut close up on the
back of the blade can make for an exciting time.
