To be fair, Raccoon, companies are peopled by, well, people, so errors are sure to occur. I worked with engineers at Keyport Naval Torpedo Station, a/k/a the Naval Underwater Warfare Engineering Station [NUWES], and Banger Sub Base. Complex equipment, programs and so forth often, had bug that weren’t caught and needed to be worked out.

On the Delta, people had a right to get what they expect, so the company should have (may have) provided fixes for the problems.

I was at the bottom of the food chain, with regard to the engineers, and I, often, caught things, some little, some big, that had escaped their attention.

I think what Snodgrass was trying to get across was, band saws have been being produced for a lot of years (decades) and, for example, if the lower tire needed to be co-planar to the top, one of them would have adjusted assembly for it by now.

My tires are anything but co-planar, but I get veneer cuts, with the right blade, it sharp, proper tension and centering the gullets of the blade on tire.

Of course, there are lemons. Go read a few Amazon and other reviews on various saws and that’s clear.
