Default Bandsaw blade problem

Bought a Timberwolf blade 1/4" 10 teeth per inch at Woodcraft for $23.99. Installed it on my bandsaw. The problem is that it leaves some really rough cuts on the sides of the wood. It's a low tension silicon carbide blade. You would think this blade would at least leave a smoother cut on the wood. My Craftsman blades with 6 teeth per inch leave smoother cuts on the wood. Anyone have any ideas?

The only things I can come up with is either your guides are not adjusted correctly after the blade change or the tension is not set correctly. Did you set the tension as directed on the back of the blade package? If so, other than the guides, I can't think of anything else. I use Timberwolf blades and they work great for me. Oh! One more thing. Is the blade tracking straight?

You know I have had that same issue.

The blade with 10 teeth does not cut near as nice as my blade with 3 teeth.

I have no idea why. I can only guess it is a combination of a bad blade and the specific wood being used.

I do know that it is best to use a 3 or 4 tpi blade when re-sawing. The reason being that they clear the sawdust out of the cut better thus allowing a faster/smoother cut. Maybe that is the problem. How thick is the piece you are cutting?
