I always raise the head at the end of the cut,its tempting if you have a simple scale and pointer to leave it set but it will get you sooner or later.At the end of the cut I make a mental note where the pointer is for resetting to the next cut.A soft material glued to the inside of the bandwheel covers will save teeth when a band does come off.
