Topic tags/keywords: grizzly go555p with 6 riser kit tensioner way way out bandsaw blade moves in and outfront to backwhen running i would swear the top wheel is way out of round dial gauge set on 0 went from -5 thousents to 5 thousents

Hi everyone,if this has been before,Im sorry,as im new today…I was reading Matt Schnurbusch great article on his problems with the riser kit,I was hoping he still had the PDF grizzly sent him to adjust the tension block,and would forward a copy to me,as I called grizzly and they had no idea what paperwork I was talking about….also when I pull the tension lever down,the whold head(where the bearings are around the blade)pulls to the left,towards on/off switch,and thats with both top and bottom bearings out of the saw,so nothing is touching the blade,1/2” blade installed.Ive done everything I can think of,even pulling most of the saw apart,and rebuilding it,just on the chanch its a factory screw up,and its tough for me as I am handicapped,but im at the point I want to just sell it and get something else,problem is money,single parent on disability…..........due to accident,I live in more pain than any human should,and the wood working helps me relax.Any help would be really welcomed and thank you all,if I repeated a thread
THANK U

Hey stormin, read your post and then when searching for the original article by Matt. In his article he states if anyone has questions to email him. He may have the pdf file still, why not just email him and ask…ablehands@nc.rr.com

Hello Norman, I tried to reach Matt for you and got the message that my email couldn’t go through, well we tried. Reading his article again, seems that the solution was for him to readjust every time he put a new blade on, maybe I missed something, worse comes to worse maybe you can get by without the riser kit.

Clarkie,THANK YOU SO MUCH,for trying…..all I am looking for is a sheet that grizzly sent him in PDF for on how to adjust tension block when u use a riser kit….........Building the guitars,I use quilted maple,flamed maple and other exotic woods for the tops,and sometimes the backs that are very expensive,and I needed the riser kit so I could bookmatch them.Your a heck of a guy to go out of your way for me,and if I can EVER do anything for you,e-mail me at stormin349@comcast.net or just give me a call(home)617-786-8353
THANK YOU,so much for your time,Have a great day and my best to you and yours,I have torn down the entire saw at 3AM and took the riser out for now,Just about done putting it all back together,Thanks Again
Your Friend,Norman Brown
