One of the nuisance things about bandsaws is the factory supplied insert. Often it will be too low in the table, so workpieces catch on the edge of the casting and the blade slot is massive to allow for tilting the table, but it then traps wedges of wood. There are different ways of dealing with this. One is to fit a sub-table over the cast table, made from kitchen worktop it has more 'slip' than cast iron. The other is to either rout a new insert using a homemade inboard trammel or my quick method shown here.
