Hi, I have a minimax pro 32 86inch bandsaw. I'm having a problem when I rip a piece of wood down the lenghth when using the fence. The blade tends to go to the outside and gets pinched against the wood, slows down and doesn't cut straight because it has gone off course. Does anybody know how I can get rid of this problem?

Try investing in a good quality blade,i was having the same problem even with a brand new blade supplied with the machine,got a decent blade and its like a knife through butter.

Tuffsaws. 99% of people on here will recommend Ian and will tell you what a difference having one of his blades will make. Gives excellent advice and will only sell you what you need.
