  1. Gullet on the crown works great for me. But I have a question and a comment. First the question, since the back edge of the blade (assuming it is wide enough to have a back edge hanging off the other side of the crown — this prompts second question) can waggle a bit, does this have a noticeable effect on kerf width? I don’t have ultra-thin blades or minimal set blades on my bandsaw so I doubt I’d see or notice anything.

    As a comment, I’ve discovered that the eccentric guides on my bandsaw have “spacers” that are a little too thick and make it difficult to pull the side guide bearings back far enough when the gullet is on the crown. I can do it but it took a little creative filing. I’d have the same problem mounting a 3/16″ blade in the “normal” fashion too. Not a show-stopper, just something to be prepared for the first time.
