I believe this will help you. Check if the blade is correctly installed and tensioned . Do you have
a good blade? It might be also blade issue. I got Haltbar blades of sawblade.com , no issue at all. Worn out tires can
also mess up the tracking. Please also check the coplanarity of the wheels.

Difficulty slipping lionel train 6-12754 tie channel into pier trestle


make sure track is not in a "bind" as this will make it difficult to fit track into holders (and they do fit tight) also not all plastics that are new have been "deflashed" this is sometimes a tiny bit of excess plastic that OOzes out in the wrong place of a casting , a tiny x-acto blade fixes that in seconds

Why does my blade keep jumping off track on my black and decker 7 1/2 band saw


There are few reasons why blade jumps off, you may have a poor weld on the blade. Tension could be too tight or too loose. Make sure that the blade tracks properly. I advise you to watch videos about tuning up a band saw or check some informative blogs on bandsawblog.com. I purchased my blades on sawblade.com , check them out if you need any.

Difficulty shaving Spanish Water Dog


The biggest issue with clipping animals (except sheep which use completely different clippers) is that once you have sharpened blades, you need to go slow and keep then blades oiled and cooled. The KOOL spray by oster works great and the clippers you are using are a good reliable brand and model. When clipping my cocker/schnauzer cross, I have a 1/2 inch guard on it (have to use a 30 or 40 blade with the guards) and it takes about an hour. I stop every 10 minutes or so to let them cool down, spray and oil them.

I have a Craftsman 10 inch band saw. The blade keeps coming off. I can't find my manual. How do I adjust the alignment on it?


the blade tension shaft in the rear top of the saw should also have a tracking adjustment knob that tilts the top wheel. Open the top guard and spin the top wheel by hand and adjust the tracking knob until the blade atays on. Better unplug the saw until you get this done, then you can power the saw back up and fine tune the tracking while running until it is perfect. hope this helps you.

Having trouble getting new blade to install.


You have to release the blade tensioning device to allow the blade to slip over the drums, then re-establish the blade tension. It should be firm enough to prevent the blade from slipping on the drums. If the blade wants to track toward one side, either the upper drum bearing is bad, the track adjustment is incorrect, or the drum drive surfaces are badly worn. Good luck!

Ryobi Bench Grinder with Linisher tracking difficulty.


It sounds like the pulley is not adjusted correctly. This is causing the belt to move on you. Carefully inspect and adjust the pulley so it is square and flat. Use a straight edge.

Bandsaw blade keeps coming off Rexon BS 10


Unplug the saw and take the covers off the wheels. See if any of them show excessive end play or deflections when gently racking them from side to side. You may need to shim the wheels. Ideally, you want them all to track in the same plane, and you can check this with a straightedge.
There should be a tracking thumbscrew locked with a wing nut or some such on the back of the upper wheel. Put the blade on so it rides in the center of the tire, (move the guides out of the way if need be until you get the blade to track correctly), and turn the wheel by hand to see how the blade rides. That way you can make adjustments before it pops all the way off. By moving the bolt on the back of that upper wheel in or out you adjust the pitch of that wheel and change the way the blade tracks...
After you get the blade tracking smoothly under tension, you can move the guides back into position to support your blade during cuts.

My 16" Delta band saw blade is drifting how can I fix it?


The blade guides are not intended to prevent your blade from drifting they are there to ensure proper blade path while cutting forces are being applied. There is a tracking adjustment for the upper wheel. Unplug the saw. Start with light blade tension. Turn the upper wheel by hand while adjusting the tracking knob. When the tracking is close set proper blade tension and check tracking again. You can make fine adjustments to tracking with the machine running.
