How co-planer is co-planer on the wheels? Is their room for error? Using a straight edge I can’t get four points of contact. I’m off by 1/32” to 1/16”.

Mine is the same way, so, I call co-planar on my machine when the wheel that’s not in contact with the straightedge has an even offset on the top and bottom of it. From there, I deal with the blade tracking slightly off from the center of one wheel, and consider that I have relatively co-planar wheels. I’ve had no problems with that.

That is probably close enough for me, but for others maybe not so much. The error in those bandsaws is almost entirely due to the risers, so thats likely where you’ll make the most correction.
