I have a 2 speed bandsaw…
I have only ever used it on the higher speed…
I can’t remember where I got this information, but I recall being told, or reading somewhere, that basically it’s the faster speed for wood, the smaller speed for metal.
It was told as somewhat of a generalisation but it seems to make sense, and work.

If you think about it, you can replicate the slower speed, if you need to, by feeding the wood in slower!.

Good luck,
