An additional point not covered in the video is that different blades have different purposes.  DO NOT CUT CURVES WITH THE THICK BLADE (5/8" or 3/4").  It is for straight line cuts and resawing.  Here is a handy chart for what thickness blades can be used for cutting what curves:

Because we have lots of members who use the bandsaw for quick walk-up cuts, please make sure the 1/4" blade is the one that stays on the saw.  If you need to use another blade to do fine scroll work or resaw, CHANGE IT BACK WHEN DONE.  the 1/4" x 6 TPI blades we have are good general purpose blades for 90% of what our bandsaw gets used for at Hive13.  Thus, It should be the one to stay on the saw.

It is every member's responsibility to make sure the bandsaw is adjusted before using it, even if you are not the one who changed the blade.  If anyone needs an in-person demo to make sure you have the process down, please don't hesitate to ask for help. I have warden hours tomorrow evening or can meet you whenever is convenient.
