Subject:
Accurately sawing large wood blanks?

JL
I need some 45 degree cuts on large glued up wood blanks. By large, I mean 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 15" blanks.

I have a 14" Delta band saw w/ a 1/4" blade, a 12" CMS and a 10" Cabinet saw - not to mention numerous hand tools. I tried using my large band saw but there was a bit too much drift in the cut (maybe I should tighten the blade more?).
