      Hello Mark,

      Here is what our expert had to say regarding your question:

      “Run the bandsaw with the guides set wide open; not touching the blade. Loosen the blade until the blade flutters slightly. Then slowly tighten it up until it stops fluttering. Then, turn the knob one more rotation, and your tension should be optimal.
      Paul”

    Hi George Tim, From Madison. In my opinion from working on a band saw 40 hours a week in a furniture factory, the band saw is the most dangerous Machine But most People don’t use one that often. Sharp Blades are the Key.

    I just bought my first drum sander. I have tried to final sand some walnut. I keep getting burn marks and or course is trashes up the sand paper too. What am I doing wrong? Feeding too fast, too slow. I’ve tried to take 1/64th per pass.

    Should fresh cut logs be sealed if they are not going to be milled immediately
