I ordered a Jet 16" bandsaw locally so in the mean time till it comes is
there a bandsaw bible book out there that you can recommend to me? A book
that might show how to tune up the bandsaw and do interesting cuts...stuff
like that and maintain the beast over the years...TIA
Duginske's "Bandsaw Handbook".

Goes a bit deeper than Lonnie Bird's IMHO.
Plan to buy a good range of blades (the book advises). Any bandsaw is
only a machine for moving the blade around, so it pays to have the right
sort on hand.
Here's a differing, also humble opinion:
I think Lonnie Bird's book has all the same information, but is much
easier to read.
Also, there was a Fine Woodworking article recently in which Mike
Dunbar said to just use a 3 tpi blade for everything. I've been using
a 4 tpi, bi-metal blade for everything and I think he's right.
In the meantime buy an Olsen Pro or Iturra's Promaster blades.
Call for a free 218 pages 2005 Catalog from Iturra. The catalog
itself contain alot of useful information about bandsaw.
