Question about Northern Industrial Tools Electric Meat Saw/Grinder
There is an adjustment you can make to the top guide wheel to make the blade stay on track. There is a screw with a lock nut just beneath the main bearing for the top wheel that is used to "tilt" that wheel to allow the blade to stay where it is suppose to. This needs adjustment periodically due to normal wear in the bearings or maybe due to a blade which is made a little different than the last one that was on there. Loosen the lock nut, then turn the adjusting screw to tilt the wheel in the direction needed to keep the blade on. Not much adjustment is usually needed. After turning the screw, jog the motor on briefly (with the blade on) and check how it runs. Keep adjusting until you get it running true. Lock the nut and you should be good.
Good Luck. Be Careful while jogging the motor to check the runout, as you will need to do this with the guards out of place.
