Fine-Tune Your Bandsaw

If you have a workshop you probably have a bandsaw, (if you don't, sell your table saw and buy a bandsaw, ha, ha, I'm joking). I have read arguments that puts the bandsaw ahead of all other machines when equipping a workshop and depending on the type of work you do, some of the most accurate cuts required are made on the bandsaw, in addition if you have a steady free hand it gets much more use than the table saw, mine does.

Keeping your bandsaw well tuned up will insure trouble free cutting and longer blade and guide life. Here is one of the better articles on tuning up your bandsaw that I have found. The article was in the 1997 May/June Fine Woodworking magazine and is well worth a read.
