It seems that no matter how well I tune up my bandsaw, I occasionally have to fight drift when ripping or resawing. The blade tends to wander off the cut line.
ADJUSTABLE. To correct for blade drift, the angle of the bandsaw fence shown above can be adjusted. The drawings below show how it goes together.
I started by fastening aluminium angle rails to the saw’s table. I made an extension to fill in the space between the table and riser.
The fence consists of a base, braces, clamps and a face. The base has a pair of trenches used to locate and secure the clamps. A pair of braces supports the face of the fence. They’re attached with screws. The clamps are made from two layers of plywood as shown below. They’re fastened with knobs and threaded inserts.
Finally, glue the face to the base. Slide the fence over the rails and tighten the clamps. It can be skewed to account for blade drift.
