Hi All,

I am new to band saw, i have a band saw power plus 180, but i cannot set it to work. I have tried everything, from videos to tutorials....

It does not cut not straight either band saw box. The blade is turning as i tried to turn the wood.

Is very frustrated and i want to make band saw boxes. Is my blade wide? What i need to do?

Thanks in advance:thumbsup:


where's my table saw?

not enough power

Yes, your blade may be too wide or the motor is too small for thick material and very tight curves. A 1/4" wide OR .025" or 6mm wide blade is the widest I would use. But according to the specs the motor is very small at 350 watts.

If you really want better results with less frustration, return it for a larger machine... JMO.
