Picked up the Rikon 14” Deluxe and have so far been pretty impressed. One thing keeps popping up and I was wondering if anyone out there could help me.
The tracking on the machine seems to be waaaaay off. I adjusted the bearing guides for the stock 5/8” blade and gave the wheels a spin by hand first. The blade immediately went to the far right of the wheel and would not come back no matter what adjustment I made. It actually jumped off the wheel while being turned manually (glad it didn’t happen under full power). Well, I was planning on taking that blade off anyway so I removed it and put on a 3/16” blade.
No matter what I try, I can’t get the blade to the center of the wheel. I can get it to ride to the right one third of the wheel but can’t get it back to the center.
Any suggestions from the other RIkon owners out there? Thanks for taking a look and I appreciate any help.
