I have a Craftsman 10" bandsaw. It has never really worked very well. Even after a very detailed "setup." I know it's probably a given for the veteran builders, but recently, I purchased a Timberwolf 3/8" blade for hardwood and it has turned my crappy, can't cut a straight line through cardboard bandsaw, into an uber-bandsaw! So if you have a small bandsaw with it's original factory blade and want an easy but significant upgrade, get a really good saw blade.
