Question about Dewalt dw3988 14tpi portable band saw blade - 44-7/8", .025" - 3 pack
Can you turn it 180 degrees so the slot faces the other direction?
If not, (because of the notch), you'll need to readjust your guides...You probably should anyway..
Begin by backing off the bearing behind the blade that keeps the blade from riding farther back into the outfeed table. Then loosen the guide blocks and adjust the upper wheel so that when the blade tracks on the tire, the cutting edge is just forward of the center of the tire, (where the cutting edge of the narrow blade tracked). Once you have the blade running smoothly, bring the guide blocks in close to the sides, and adjust the back bearing so it just barely spins when the blade is freewheeling, and provides support when a cut is made.
You may have to adjust these instructions slightly to account for what's available with your saw, but that's basically the method for making the blade track in the center of the knockout.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
