    I follow these two rules religiously. And I am not joking.

    Yes, do that. And browse eBay. You will end up in the doghouse, but luckily your doghouse will be full of quality woodworking tools.

    +1 on the Powermatic. Love mine. And I just might have to try the carbide tipped blades too.

    Can you post a photo of what is happening?
    I am not sure what you mean by the wood buckling.

    I spend a little time cutting wood so I thought if I could see exactly what you are talking about I might be able to help come up with a solution.
    The saws we use here range from 50+ year old Butcher Boy meat cutting bandsaws to Grizzlie and Jets.
    So as you probably guessed I have had a little experience improvising to make things work.

    I don't have any of the screw ups to shoot a picture of but maybe I can explain it. Imagine when cutting a 1" block in half (for scales) the outside "scale" is turning outward away from the blade. In some cases it's only this outer piece that gets curled but in other cases both curl but the inside always a lot less.

    What I end up with is the middles touching but not the ends and if flipped outside-in I get the ends touching and not the middle.

    Does that make any sense?

    Sounds like a wood issue, more than a saw issue.

    Might be an inadequate tension in the blade.
