Hi Stephen, welcome to the forum.

With a new bandsaw to look after, you may, or may not be aware that all bandsaws need to be 'tuned' to get the best out of them. In addition, there is a huge difference in the performance of the bandsaw when the wrong make of blade is chosen and these DO affect results. The best blade in the UK are undoubtedly made by Ian Black of Tuffsaw.

However, getting the bandsaw running smoothly takes time each and every time you change blades. If you haven't already seen it, the following may help.

THE BEST FROM A BANDSAW 'Alex Snodgrass of Carter Industries has an excellent video on a tune up method that works well, but if you want to get the best use of your bandsaw on an ongoing basis, then the Steve Maskery DVD's will show you far more and they are a real investment. '.

For checking the tension of your blade - A Flutter test Video -

I hope this all helps you to get the very best from your latest equipment and if you need help, please shout up.
