Ok
I got a problem with the bandsaw
It has to do with the tracking mechanism
I took good pics
Problem is the bracket that holds the wheel shaft and adjusting is hitting the wheel spikes and for the life of me I cannot figure out why
I know it’s simple but not seeing it and calling customer service they told me that it was the upper part of the bracket has two pins and they must be broken and allowing the bracket to drop and rub

Not the case no broken parts everything is as it should be as far as I can tell but ?

Andy came by the other day and we ground a little off the bracket to make it clear but it just stated rubbing again ?

Also rubbed the inside of the case

I do not see a washer or spacer in the diagram to hold it out of the way

Pictures of wheel would help. My guess is the bearing on the upper wheel is bad or going bad.

The arbor for the wheel looks bent. So does the bracket. Did your bearings have an extended inner race?

I hate to ask but is the hub longer on one side that would make it stick out farther? Or top and bottom wheels flip flopped?

Cast aluminum can bend. Once.

That arbor and bracket are supposed to be at 90deg.

Ok ok

Dang it again!

I disassembled the unit to find that the bracket being bent will not allow me to remove it *%¥|£<•\%|%^|¥\¥\

You should be able to pull the screws out that hold the cover and blade guard. After that it should slide up and out easily.

I know about bending mainly because of an OWWM rule that goes something like this: zinc, cast aluminum, pot metal, zamack will bend once. After that. It will break.

I discovered this rule a little too late :)

Most of the 14” saws are clones anyway. There’s gotta be something out there that will work.

No. It needs to be replaced.
