brantley ,
the upper wheel is able to tilt so it can be adjusted
so the blade can track .
when the blade is on and tightened ,
it keeps the wheel from going up ,
as it pulls down ,
the blade should be tight enough for you to push it sideways
about 1/4 ” , and ’ twang ’ when you play it like a guitar string .
the guide blocks/bearings THEN should be brought to almost touch the blade .
start it after you close all the covers , and see iff it runs good ,
then try it out with some scrap . good luck !
