Planning the Cut
Frequently, the accurate cutting location for working a band saw is to facet the blade. However, you can operate it by standing to the right-hand side or the back of the saw if it places you in a better position to see and control the labor. Be aware that if the blade breaks and is thrown from the saw, it has a tendency to whip to the right-hand side as you face the band saw. Make sure you retain a well balanced stance. Think around your body position at the beginning point of the cut as well as at the finish point of the cut to avoid overreaching.
Before the saw is turned on, the upper guides have to be adjusted for the height of the wood being cut. A good rule is to set the guide around 1/4″ above the top edge of the inventory. Retain in mind that the upper and lower guides are not guards, but are guides. The function of these guides is to support the blade and to help it run true. They also retain the blade from drifting and deflecting during the cut.
When the labor is so huge or heavy that it causes you to pay more attention to supporting it than cutting it, an extra hand or support procedure would be a good idea. Always let the machine build up to full speed before beginning.
