Chain needs sharpening is one cause ,chain too loose on bar is another cause and the bar havinging exesive wear in the chain groove is the last thing it can be. if you push the chain up into the groove from below ,and youcan still move the chain from side to side ,the bar is ex esivly worn ,you can turn the bar over and try that, if that does not help with a sharp chain ,then you will have to replace the bar . this is a normal maintainance thing ,and not unusual . youdoit

When cutting a bevel across skirting board,I get a curved cut across.

Your piece is not square to the cutting blade and is moving during the cutting process. The direction of the curve tells you which way the piece is moving.

How tight is tight when adjusting your blade? My blade bends when cutting curves. Thank you

maybe you need to slow down when going around corners, most of the uneven grass cutting around corners is from the lean to the outside of corners

When cutting 18mm ply wood using a straight edge after a few centimetres the cut curves under the material even with a new blade. thank you

Unfortunately that is just to thick of material to cut with a jig saw blade. Plywood is made up of several layers and your blade is trying to follow the grain on one of them. You can try a metal blade and high motor speed low travel rate, but it will quickly heat up the blade and warp it making your problem worse if you don't stop often. If you are trying to make straight and curved cuts, I have the best luck with a rotary cutter such as the roto zip, but plywood easily snaps the bits.

Orientation cutting blade fitting, curve ends up or down please ?

Down. if the blade is up it just pushes the grass over and doesn't actually cut it.

What can be done with a scoll saw, table legs?, what uses is the scroll saw for

Scroll saws use a small thin blade that runs up and down very fast. It is used to cut curved designs out of flat wood. Table legs are made on a lathe, it spins a square or round piece of wood to make legs, baseball bats.

Saw will not cut curves

Tighter curves have to be cut by cutting tangentally; that is, when the blade will not follow the line any further, you cut away from the material line that you are trying to follow, and begin again by bringing the material back to the blade.
Best regards,

I purchased the new Ridgid tile saw named " The Beast". Initially it looked like a great saw buy after cutting a few ceramic tiles I began to notice that it cuts with a slight curve. I could not find any...

Its either the speed of the blade ( mine came with its speed at half rate), or its the crappy blade they give you with the saw. If a cut is bowing your blade is having a tough time with material. This often happens with tough porcelain tiles and not using a porcelain blade.

Blade misalignment

The 1590, like several Bosch jigsaws, has a selector switch to choose the type of cutting action. You have to choose the appropriate cutting action, either straight or oscillating, to accommodate the material you cut and the blade you cut with. For instance, if using a very slender blade for clean curved cuts in wood, a slight oscillating motion ( setting II or III) reduces friction on the blade. 
If you choose the straight cutting action you get maximum accuracy, but drastically increase the friction because the blade is held firmly to the roller bearing.  A slender blade can handle that for brief periods, (say... less than thirty seconds) in soft, thin wood with a straight cut. In hard woods or engineered wood products ( plywood, MDF etc.) the thin blade will heat up and bend. 
You can reduce friction by choosing an oscillating cutting motion, or you can use a larger, sturdier blade. The "Aggressor" blades do not cut as smoothly as the "clean" blades, but they cut faster and are stronger. To cut thick wood ( 4x4 ) or a long cut in engineered material, that is the blade I use. Select number III or number II for 'type-of-cut' and use a bigger blade. See if that stops the "bucking."
Good luck!

Blade width usage

Blade Width is important when purchasing a band saw. Most saws accept narrow 1/8" blades for cutting detailed designs and tight curves. Better saws also accept wider blades. Wide blades don’t flex as much as narrow ones, but they make accurate straight cuts in thick stock quicker. There are also some wide blades available that can cut metal.
