Bandsaw burning wood

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Anybody know why my band saw likes to burn wood? I am cutting 1 1/2 inch oak. I am using a 1/4 inch blade. Am I using too many teeth? Not sure of the TPI on the blade but I've attached a picture. Never had this problem with re-saw, only cutting a pattern. Any help much appreciated.

the band saw works just like my scroll saw. Change the blade and the burning stops. Then the next blade go with less teeth. Even 1 1/2" is not real thick wood but for that little blade to clear out the saw dust its too thick. Less teeth will have a wider set which will help keep the gap clear.
