I have a 14" Rockwell band saw. I recently tried to resaw some 4" kiln-dried red oak and the blade wandered way off-center.
I'm using a 93 1/2", 3/8" X 6 tpi. The blade speed on this saw seems pretty slow but it's running with the original motor and isn't overloading at all.
I had the blade pretty tight - even tighter than the gauge indicated for a 3/8" blade. The guides are set according to the owners manual.
Would a 1/2" X 4 blade work better for resawing?
Is this saw capable of such resaw work?
