Band Saw: Not cutting straight

If the band saw cuts crooked, use the rip fence to guide your work piece when making straight cuts. Don't push the work piece too fast when cutting. A dull or damaged blade won't track well; replace the blade if necessary.

These repairs may help solve your Band Saw problem:

Replace the band saw blade

The band saw blade becomes dull with use. Cutting hard wood or metal hastens blade dulling. The band saw blade is dull when you must apply significantly more than normal force to push the piece you’re cutting through the blade. Replace the band saw blade when it's dull or damaged.
