I need help with my bandsaw. it's an old department store type put out
by busy bee.Three wheels.Old fashioned threaded blade guides. I got it
second hand. It worked fine till the original blade broke. I think it
worked fine with the new one. But lately it won't cut straight. Soon
after starting into the piece, the blade curves to the right and cuts
a curving cut in the that direction.
I had the same problem with my Grizzly 14" saw. It worked fine for a
VERY few cuts and then started giving me the same trouble. After
switching to a Timberwolf blade it not only cuts straight again, it cuts
After looking at the Timberwolf web sight I wonder if I can sue them for
false advertising...they work much better than advertised :)
If the blade was cutting OK and now isn't, one side of the blade is
probably worn. If it's a new blade, it could have a larger than normal
burr on one side. Also check the tension of the blade and make sure
it's tight enough.
