This reader just loaded a 1/8″ blade on his newband saw and can’t keep it centered on the wheels. Is the blade supposed to run on the front of the wheel or should it be centered?
Michael Dresdner: It should be centered, but some band saw guides don’t have enough adjustment to accommodate a 1/8″ blade centered on the wheel. You might have to modify the thrust-bearing stem or reposition the guides. Otherwise, if the wheels are aligned, the blade should track.
