my linebar bandsaw resaw saws wavy and thick lumber from time to time and i was wondering if it could be a band problem or a machine problem? could the bands getting sharpend shaped and swaged improproly? and could feed speed be a problem with some species i try to run a band around 90-105board feet per minute is that ok? and is band strain a factor in whether a band work good or not? if so how high or low should i strain a band up to when running the saw, thanks jim
