Question about Saws
This saw was my fathers, can not find manual for it. Craftsmans web site is a lost cause. The blade will not stay on the thrust bearings. No matter how I adjust them, I only get about 30 seconds until the blade runs off. I figured the manual should have some basic troubleshooting to hopefully ease my pain.
Hi, On all bandsaws, it's the pitch of the wheels that determine the position of the blade. The top wheel should be adjustable for pitch, and blade tightness.
The blade should only contact the thrust bearings when you are cutting, not when it is idling. No sense in wearing out the bearings and blade while idling.
