Not sure where I should ask this so I will start here...
I have a Grizzly 555LX 14" bandsaw. I enjoy making bandsaw boxs so I make a lot of tight corner cuts in 4" thick wood. I was using a Timberwolf 1/8" 14TPI blade. It is very hard to get the tracking right with the crowned wheels on the bandsaw. When I added the Carter Stabilzer in an attempt to get a better cut, I had a heck of a time keeping the 1/8" blade on the wheel. Carter suggests moving the blade farther back on the wheel and then adding the 1/8" of tension using the stabilzer. As soon as I add the tension with the stabilzer the blade goes all the way across the wheel and off. I had to add blade tension on the saw and move the blade all the way to the back of the wheels. I did this in fine increments until the blade stayed on the wheel. Needles to say the blade broke after a few cuts.
Anyone have any tips? I need the 1/8" blade to make tight curves. Should I just forget about the Carter Stabilzer. Anyone have any experience with bandsaw boxes and 1/8" blades?
Thank you in advance.
