Help, bandsaw problem
I have a Rockwell 10" bandsaw. Never used, got it in a garage sale.
Read the books and watched the vidios on tuning but have a problem aligning the wheels. Pics of the saw, wheels and the parts blow up and manual are attached.
I put a straight edge on the wheels as described in the material I studied and the wheels are approx. 1/4" out of allignment. The problem is the top wheel has very little play in it and I am not shure if I can mess with the drive wheel on the bottom.
I would need to move the bottom wheel in closer to the pully on the shaft.
The manual mentions nothing about this and I don't want to tear something up.
Also somebody changed the motor mount and I am not shure why. The manual shows it hanging from the bolts that hold the saw to the stand but it is moved down to the shelf. The original bracket is still being used
The last two pic are the wheels. The one with the oiler is the top wheel.
The level is tight agenst the bottom wheel in two places and the top wheel is off about 1/4" top and bottom.
Anybody have this saw or any ideas.
