Problems with my band saw bs100

What happens with my band saw, when it is cut with the saw marks on the wood.

    What type of cuts are you making when you see the saw marks? Are you cross-cutting, or are you ripping material on you Band Saw? Is your rip fence securely in place when rip-cutting material? Does your miter-gage fit properly in the slide chanel? Answer these basic questions, so I know where we are starting at, and we'll go from there.

Look for any gouges in the metal surface that have metal projecting above the milled surface. Also, file or grind away any sharp edges along the miter gauge track. If the cut surface is very irregular, the blade may have overly coarse teeth, or the blade guide rollers may not be holding the blade firmly allowing the blade to wander while cutting. Hope this helps.

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.

Why does the saw cut at an angle?

The table is not perpendicular to the blade travel. Use a small level to make sure the machine is vertical , then set the table. Make sure the blade control guide is working.

Blade does not make straight cut and turns.

it may be the blade is worn out and has lost its edge on one side or it could be its too lose, on the other hand if your pushing the wood through to fast not letting the blade cut it first it wont cut straight

Check and see if one of the guides is out of alignment or if the blade is worn. Either one can cause the problem since you already checked the tension and guides. If the guides are worn they won't hold the blade true.

Delta bs100 runs backwards

It's wired wrong. You'll have to change the wiring at the motor to correct this.
If it's a new saw, I'd exchange it for one that was put together right.
