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.

My Delta Band Saw blade is to tight. I need less tension, because it is actually burning the wood....what to do?

What is your band saw machine? What type of blade are you using?
One of the methods that I've tried in applying right tension on my blade is by using Phil Thien's method . Another method is to tighten the blade and then pluck it like a guitar. The blade should produce a clear tone of a specific pitch, rather than a dull thud.
Check . Hope that helps.

I just purchased the ryobi 9 inch bandsaw, used it once or twice and have noticed that the teeth on the blade are crooked. is that a typical problem, is it a problem at all?

If you mean that the teeth alternate sides in which they point, this is normal. This aids in the blade clearing cut material from the path of the blade making sure it does not clog. Almost all saws for wood have this tooth pattern. If you have doubts look at a new replacement blade for the saw.

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, the saw and the blades will last longer! Be safe!

Proper blade tension to speed tips

If you are like most people, (from your description you probably are), you might be feeding too fast. I did the same thing, and many other people I know did also. I learned by trial and error, and using scrap, watched from the side as I fed. Sure enough, when that little blade bent just a little too far...SNAP. It is much slower sawing than I imagined, even with the coarsest blade. I learned the best and broke the fewest with spiral blades. I always set the tension by sound. Again, trial and error. Take your sweet time! Have fun!!
