When you have ‘set’ on your blade, it needs to be perfectly balanced in order to achieve a straight and accurate cut. Any inconsistencies to the set will cause the blade to lead left or right in the cut, creating an uneven, wavy finish. A reliable bandsaw blade set checker is needed.

Check the tooth set
Tooth set amount is the extent a tooth is bent away from the blade width to make the cut a little wider than the blade itself. Set makes it easier for the operator to pivot the work-piece around the blade when contour cutting.
If your blade has uneven set, from left to right, you will be unable to cut a straight line in your material.
