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

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.

Can anyone help please ive just got hold of a black and decker DN339 band saw and want to cut max 50mm soft wood with the grain using the fence to slide against, only the blade is tilting towards the fence...


That is usually an indication that the blade is blunt and one side has lost its edge more than the other. The blade will wander towards the sharper side. You will have to replace the blade. For soft wood you need about 4-6 tpi. and a cutting speed of about 1000 - 1500 ft/min.

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.

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.

What makes a rip cut on the table saw to end up concave instead of perfectly straight? Does that mean the rip fence is concave from end to end too?


It is doubtful that the fence is concave but this can be checked with a straight-edge. More likely this is caused by the blade having hit a nail on one side and the teeth on that side of the blade are damaged. Hope this helps you.

Cutting straight


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