Question about Carter Products Rikon 14" Sears 14" Professional Guide Conversion Kit
The guide assembly on my Sears model number 124.32607 14" Band Saw will not move true or parallel to the blade. when I turn the assembly up towards the top of its travel there is a 1/4" movement from left to right, of the assembly and then the reverse action coming back down its travel by the blade. this problem should be an easy fix except the frame if folded steel and not cast steel and there does not seem any way to adjust the action of this assembly other than retooling it. Is this an inherent problem with this saw, or is there something that I am missing?
Sounds like something's bent. You might need some replacement parts. 14" band saws, regardless of brand, are generally made with Chinese parts that are knockoff Delta-Rockwell parts from many years ago. Grizzly sells most of these parts at reasonable prices. Check the exploded views of their saws to see if the parts match. Craftsman parts are expensive, even though they're the same part.
