Question about Carter Products Rikon 14" Sears 14" Professional Guide Conversion Kit
The Guide assembly will not ride true to the blade causing me to readjust the guide bearings every time I have to move it. I have removed every part to see if there were any obstructions in the way of the guide assembly, but there were none. as I looked at the saw I noticed that the front of the saw was not square so I fixed that, but it had little effect on the problem. this model has a folded steel frame and not a cast steel frame. I can not see any way to adjust this guide bar and correct the swaying back and forth of the guide assembly. I am shure it is supposed to run true to the blade as it travels from the bottom to top and top to bottom of its travel. Is this an inherent problem with this type of saw or is there some way to adjust the assembly?

Check this blog first. Are you installing a new blade? If the blade is running backwards, you just have to reverse it, turn inside out. Try watching the Alex Snodgrass' Youtube video Band Saw Tune Up .
