I have a Porter Cable 14 inch band saw. I am getting a loud clicking sound. I have checked everything and cannot find the problem. can anyone give me some guidance. I have a felling that it is the bearing in my bottom wheel.

The P-C is a copy of sorts of the old Delta 14. When my blade is ready to go (weld about to snap) I get the same sound. Try a new blade before you did into it any deeper
