Are you using a new blades? If not, try using new or different blade. Make sure that you're feeding the material just nice and slow and you have enough water so that you will not stress the blade too much.

SOURCE: Porta Band saw blade jumps off

I had this problem on a used model 725 that I bought. Apparently the rubber tires on the drive wheels develop a bit of a memory after sitting for a while with tension on the blade. I tried cleaning the tires to no avail. Then I removed both tires, flipped them over and re-installed. Still not fixed. Then I put only one back to the original position and the problem was solved. Other than the frustration of trying several times, I was out nothing and I got quite proficient at taking the blade in and out. The saw has worked fine ever since. I hope this simple (and free) solution works for you.

SOURCE: Band saw blade wanders.

cut freehand. A bandsaw blade will always run off to one side or the other, even using a fence.

The rip fence is intended for re-sawing only, and very thin strips

Cant see m to cut in a straight line. when cutting a wine bottle the top it cutting straight but the bottom it not.


Cutting a glass on band saw is like cutting a metal. You have to make sure that you set up the band saw correctly, get a good quality blade, run on right speed, enough coolant and feed the material nicely.

Dose not cut in a straight line wonders


First question: What are you cutting? Are you cutting wood? If you're using fence, I need you to make adjustments on it . The nature of the band saw is to drift either left or right being parallel with the band saw fence. Is the blade tension too tight or insufficient? Check your manual for correct tension or you can just see in the tension gauge on your saw. Please this blog on how to check the correct blade tension . What is your feed and speed rate? Make sure the you're not feeding the wood too slow or too fast. Are you using new blade? Your blade is may be dull or low quality. I purchased my blades on www.sawblade.com . Their Haltbar 201 Series works great on general wood cutting.
Last question, have you taken up time to tune up your saw? See this blog for your reference.

I can't get this saw to cut straight or square I


Band saws pull to one side on straight cuts, it's a function of the blade torque. My 14" saw pulls to the right. There's nothing you can do to stop this, you have to be aware of it so you account for it on free cuts and know to put your fence on that side so the wood pulls into the fence instead of away from it. Squaring the blade to the table is easier. Do not go by the tilt angle guide. First make absoutely sure all of your blade guides and bearings are properly alligned so they aren't pushing the blade out of line. Use a square to get it close then: using a 4" x 4" block of wood, make a light cut in the wood only deep enough to mark the wood from top to bottom. Turn the block over 180 and try to make a cut in the previous cut mark. If the cuts line up you're there. If you get a V or X you have to make adjustments to the table making sure you tighten the trunion locks tight. I had one of these, it's not a high end saw so don't expect a lot from it.

Saw is not cutting true / will not cut a straight line ?


Check blade is on properly. Remove blade and clean area where mounts to shaft. Make sure proper washers are in place. If blade is bent or wobbles replace. If blade is dull replace. Be sure you're getting enough water to saw. Don't force the tile through, let the saw do the work. Nothing helps any kind of saw more than a nice new blade.

Engineered stone (Silestone) quartz double sink vanity. I need to cut it in half. Need help with what kind of saw, technique, etc.


You are going to cut a double bowl vanity top in half and use the 2 sinks? Do you have enough room on each side for the tops to be at least 24" with the bowl in the middle? You need a diamond saw, water cooled, a skilsaw will work with a diamond blade and somebody hold a hose on it while it is cutting, it would be better to find somebody, a granite top maker with a bridge saw to cut it for you, nice and straight. Then polish the cut edges that show. That stone you have is a pretty tough stuff, you can polish it easier than granite, and it cuts easier, but you still need the diamond, I wouldn't use a dry blade or a carborundum blade. Hope this helps.

Not cutting straight


All band saws do this to some extent, but here are some things to consider
1. The tension may be too low, so that it deflects excessively when you put a little pressure on it.
2. You may be using a blade with too fine teeth for the thickness of material you are cutting. The more teeth that are cutting at the same time, the harder you have to push to get them to cut.
3. You may have a dull or poor quality blade.

Useing my band saw i get burn marks


You are applying too much pressure to the saw blade...let the blade do its work...slow down a bit...the burn marks indicate too much heat is building up...the blade is not cooling nearly enough as it goes around, from too much pressure in the cut, or the band blade may be dull, too. When the blade overheats, it loses its strength and its ability to cut as well, and it will become dull much faster. Make sure the blade is the proper type---teeth per inch and type of teeth--for the material you are cutting. Take your time...you, the saw and the blades will last longer! Be safe!

Cutting straight


this is usually caused by a dull blade or you need to carefully re-adjust the blade guides
