    If you can find bandrollers to fit your particular saw, they are a good idea. Mine is an old Craftsman 12" and I was able to find Cool Blocks to fit and got them.

    There are also some books out there on "fine tuning" and the use of a bandsaw. That was probably the biggest surprise to me, just how versatile this tool really is.

    What brand is your saw, the BS1400 by Ridgid?

    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

      A newbie to bandsawing I am, but not a newbie to woodworking. I read good reports on Timberwolf blades and have used a 3/4" for re-sawing on the BS14002. It's superb. Talk to the folks who make/sell them and they'll steer you in the right direction for what you want to do.
      Good luck.
