Question about Band Saws
Grizzly G0555 14'' bandsaw. Assembled and fit blade with no problem, but installed 6'' riser kit and the blade supplied is much too small. The riser measures 6''. The blade measures 105'' (correct size with riser), but even with top wheel lowered to maximum (minimum tension-- rotated spacers as far up the threaded rod as possible), the blade doesn't fit. The wheels are coplanar. With the tension arm in the ''up'' (tension released) position, I can get the blade on using considerable force. It's much, much too tight. Any solutions?
I lowered the spacer (on the threaded rod) and got enough drop in the upper wheel to fit the blade.
