This video was posted as an answer to where your blade should be in the top wheel of your saw. In the video The speaker tells you new saws are not meant to be coplanar. He also teaches you the proper way to set up your band saw  So take a few minutes and watch the video it is vital information. I will be using these methods to tune my band saw and i will continue to blog about how it works and wither or not it cures your band saw woes. Be sure to post your comments If this becomes a good topic I will follow it up with a full story on the band saw.

I was born in Fresno California 1961 and began woodworking at age 7 with my grandfather. He taught me many basics, specializing in hand tool work. At age 13 I began woodworking in shop class at Fort Miller Junior High School in Fresno, CA where I made many projects. My shop teachers told me I was by far more advanced and they were going to let me build projects to my level. I continued taking shop classes including wood and metal through high school.
In 1979 I joined the United States Marine Corps and did several tours of duty including some overseas in the Philippine Islands and in Iran. I was trained as a jet mechanic in the Marine Corps and enjoyed working with my hands. In the early 90s I was able to afford lots of tools to begin my workshop and with my friend Daniel Carter I formed This Old Workshop.com offering several tool reviews, and have increased the focus on tool reviews over the years. Since I have a background in mechanics I understand tool quality, and with my background in woodworking and metallurgy I was very well-qualified to do these reviews. Today, This Old Workshop is the oldest tool review website for the home woodshop user on the internet. I am very proud of the site Daniel and I have built and we are now expanding into a community and a podcast on woodworking.

    He is a very talented guy I really want the saw guide he used on the video it lets the saw cut corners with ease I just don't know if this means I need a second band saw. I am not big on band saw boxes but it is a pretty cool project
