Well i had to stick my bandsaw back together quicker than i wanted but its all in once piece and cutting but i got an issue thats got me puzzled.
Just to recap this is after i changed to new bearings sorted out the spacer washers etc and have bedded down vibration of the base.
When i turned it on with the 1/4 inch pretty new blade i have used before with no blade guides etc in contact boy was it sweet.
I want to recommend to anyone with a bandsaw to do this and listen. If you hear all the rumbling change those bearings you will be delighted with the smoothness. Larry those bearings were definitely shot.
Ok but now i think i got an issue with the tires or something just not sure or could be the blade is bent.
Will be taking it apart again today to give it the once over but thought someone might have had the same issue.
The blade is wobbling at the cutting point. I got it tracking in the middle of the upper wheel. But when it cuts its cutting a zig zag cut.
I have never seen anything like it before.
I will try changing the blade first and see if the issue goes but any other ideas out there? I hope i have not introduced some other gremlin.
Did not have time to debug when i discovered it, i had to get the column base project done and just sanded the edges smooth.
I am figuring the blade got bent badly somewhere in all the clean up dont see how since i had it hanging up but i aint the only one that goes in that shop there are two other characters that i have to take into account.
Any ideas? I know i need to do some more diagnostics before you docs can say anything but while i am at the puter i thought i would throw this out there.
