I placed my pre-order some months ago for Mark Duginske's new band saw book. I just received the book last week and have read most of it. It is clearly written and not embellished with too many words . . . to the point. It includes a good section on blade selection. He addresses blade tensioning by asserting that the tension scales on the machines are an adequate means of determining proper tension. Excellent illustrations and up-close photos showing good detail.
At the time I placed my order at Amazon, the book's price was about $13.00 - well worth the few bucks for another insight to using what for me is a primary shop machine. I find, like others on this forum, that the bandsaw is a great way to do my rip cuts.
