Hi Again All,
I just got some new bands from Suffolk and am noticing something odd
about them, or more likely my bandsaw. I am running a 17" General,
which I have been happy with in the past, and have never noticed this
So I mounted a 3/4" 6TPI band today, and started to follow there
tensioning guidelines, when I noticed a flutter in the path of the band
parallel to the width of the blade. Meaning if I were to hold a piece
of stock in front of the band it would engage and pull out of the cut.
It was pretty dramatic, maybe 3/16" or so. I played with all the roller
guides, tension, etc and it remained. I then mounted a 3/4" 2TPI blade
and didn't notice the problem at all. So I remounted the 6TPI, and
while the tick is still there it's much less now, say around 1/32". Is
this a case of some small fluke that I should worry about, or does
anyone have any knowledge they can share as to what might be going on?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts,
