    Are the tires properly crowned? It would be difficult to get the tires to track properly or stay on the wheels if there was no crown.

    When it came time to replace my blade guides, I just cut some of the lignum vitae that I have, and used that. Good enough for submarine shaft bearings...

    I thought those looked familiar. I visited that museum about 40 years ago, when we lived in Seattle. Ehibits have changed a bit, but the theme is still the same. Great place!

    Yes! I was in there in 1993, and they had a wonderful display of West Coast Indian life and housing. They have made some major changes, and I thought the museum was moving away from information to entertainment. Of course, most museum patrons these days don't have the patience to spend two minutes reading about a display.
    Cheers,

    Glad to hear it, and that you got the guide blocks taken care of.
    For future reference, why wouldn't the blade stay on? What was the fix?

    Since I didn't actually changet anything in the end, it seemed to be a matter of holding my tongue right, and carefully adjusting the top wheel to put it back in its former working condition. Since Ed Thomas was kind enough to drop by yesterday, I have some more things to think about now.
    Cheers,

    I've been wondering if someone has had the upper wheel assembly apart and reassembled it in some strange fashion. That upper wheel is definitely running in the wrong plane.
