Blades don’t really ‘wobble’ as they are not round, but linear. Do you mean the blade moves from side to side as you face it? As in there is not enough tension and /or blade guides not being adjusted correctly? Or do you mean the whole machine shakes like the wheels are not running true? That can mean that they aren’t coplanar as suggested and one wheel needs to be shimmed out with a thin washer. Or it could mean that the bearings are worn. There are two bearings for each wheel. Push and pull up and down and side to side (with the blade off) on the wheel and see if there is any play. You need to describe the problem a bit better.
