The blade should only be on a slow speed, for intricate work.
(To make sure that whatever you're cutting, doesn't get too excited.)
Otherwise, it should generally be on the fastest setting.
Thats it, oh except, be carefull and mindfull of what this baby can do;)

I have found i my years of carpentry, you cut as fast as the lumber will allow. This means that, with at sharp blade, the lumber will tell you how fast you should be cutting. Don't force the saw through the wood, just keep and even pressure while pushing through the cut

Slows down and stops when trying to cut hardwood


You just do not have a saw that has enough power, the blade is dull or both. Change your blade and push the wood through slower or get a more powerful saw for the hard woods.

Cuts are bowed


I heard that the rod that it rides on, may be bent. This is the rod, that you normally adjust, to get your straight cut, parallel to the blade. One mans solution was to turn the rods, so the bend of the rod, was vertical, rather than horizontal. You may want to look into ordering new , hopefully straight rods, from QEP too.

check the blade, it sounds like it is burning the wood instead of cutting it. I would recommend using a carbide tipped blade for the hardwood. Let me know if you need more assistnace.

Replacement blade


Use a 10" blade. As for the number of teeth...the more teeth the finer the cut will be. The only drawback is a a finer toothed blade will cut slow. For your purposes I'd suggest a fine toothed blade.

Reduce bandsaw speed to cut metal


My old delta has the transmission on the back for cutting metal, and it is geared way down for power, 1140 would be way to fast, It is more like 40 rpm. I don't know if even a set of step pulleys would slow you down enough. Depends on the metal. I have the step pulleys too, but never bother to change them. The transmission, you just pull out the lock in the center of the pulley and it throws it into back gears. real nice, has an oil filled gear box on the bottom. Everybody wants my band saw!

I'm feeding 8/4 alder through the powermatic strait line saw


Sounds like the power feeder is not holding it secure at the end of the pass. Is the outfeed table running level to the saw table?
Just a wild guess, I'm afraid. I haven't used one myself.
The only time I've seen blades wobble like that was when they were light plates, undersized for heavy duty ripping operations. It's truly frightening to watch them overheat and turn to butter like that. I'd recommend getting a heavier plated saw blade if there's any question about yours.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Blade Types


remember to match the blade width to the type of cutting you are doing. Also keep in mind: * Narrow Blades can make much tighter radius cuts, but tend to twist and wander when making long straight cuts. * Wide Blades can't make the tight turns that narrow ones can, but they hold a straighter line than their narrow counterparts. * The tpi determines the speed with which the blade cuts through stock. Blades with high tpi cut slower but leave a very smooth edge. They are best for detail work on thin stock. Blades with low tpi cut quickly and leave a slightly rough edge. They are great for resawing or long rip cuts. * Steel Blades are inexpensive and work well for cutting softwood. Steel blades, however, dull quickly in hardwood. * Bimetal Blades are made of high-speed steel and can cut thin metal or wood. * Carbide Blades are for wood cutting only. They are more expensive than other blades but stay sharper longer than steel or high-speed steel.

High-Speed Steel Blades are harder than steel blades and stay sharp longer. Carbide-Tipped Blades are more expensive than other blades, but they stay sharp much longer than steel or high-speed steel.
