All right, now that I'm going to put a US blade in my saw thanks to Larry, I plan to tune it really fine and here is the question.
Acording to "The Bandsaw book" the wheels must be aligned and one way of checking that is using a straight stick and placing it against the wheels and it should touch both wheels at the same tine so that both are turning in the same plane.
However, I noticed that in my saw the previous blade didn't stay on the same part of the lower wheel than in the top one. On the lower wheel is always a bit backward (in the cutting direction).
Due to that I have the feeling that the wheels are not well aligned. Am I right? or it is normal?
Moreover, as the upper wheel is the one that we tilt to adjust the position of the blade on the wheel I guess that to check if both wheels are aligned I should first put the top one plumb (vertical) and check the alignment with the lower one. Is that so? Then I could move the lower wheel backwards for the same displacement that the blade has.
I hope I have explained well what I'm trying to convey.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I do want to start fidling around without knowing if what I'm doing is right
