Tips and How-To

Genuine Wood Mizer Bandsaw Blades

Always choose genuine Wood Mizer bandsaw blades for the best cutting results. We manufacture a full range of bandsaw blades that are proven across Africa.

How To Fold a Blade

Folding and unfolding bandsaw blades needs to be done correctly. New and used blades have sharp edges that can cause injury.

Correct Drive Belt Tensioning

It is essential to ensure that the belt is tensioned correctly due to the belt driving the wheel on which the blade runs.

Blade Cleaning and Maintenance

Flat spots on the rollers start when the blade's deflection is wrong, whereas the correct deflection pushes the rollers down on the blade.

Correct Blade Guide Roller Alignment

When the alignment is set correctly the sawmill will cut like intended. The wrong alignment will slow the mill down while cutting causing it to feel like the mill doesn’t have power even with a sharp blade.
