Well, I finally got my dream bandsaw. A MiniMax MM16. I finished wiring it last night and now have a question about the european blade guides before making some saw dust. The machine I bought was a floor model so all the protectant that is normally on the new machines was removed prior to me buying. The blade guides are different than my previous 14" Delta and I wonder if all the protectant was removed as they rotate kinda easily when moved with a finger but don't spin freely like you might expect sealed bearings to do. Just want to find out if this is how they should behave or if I needed to do something to help them operate properly.
Oh yeah, here is a picture of my beast in the garage.
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
