We are using a Baker two head bandmill to cut Western Red Cedar.We have found the Lenox Woodmaster3 to give the most consistant performance of any 1 1/4" band. "Wavey" wood comes from either of two sources 1. The alignment of the mill and guide systems causing the saw to deviate from a straight cut. The wave occurs when the front edge of the saw becomes longer than the back or 2.The saw is resharpened without checking the front to back relationship. For more information,find a band saw repair shop and look at a back gauge. It should be simple for you to construct a back gauge once you have seen one.

In regards to your cracking problem on you resaw. I don't know what gauge your saws are or if you are running Stellite but one thing I have had to do on some bandmills in the past is peen the gullets on the saws everytime they come off. For some reason running Stellite I have had to stress relief the gullets. I know it is a big pain in the butt , but it's better than welding cracks.
