Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw craftsman 14inch

I had to recently change my blade so I went with a 1/2 inch since I am mostly using this saw for resawing smaller pieces …. now im getting a rhythmic banging noise …plus yesterday I was using it cutting 1/4 inch off 3inch by 3inch red oak and it caught and through the rear of the piece up into the air …..now my question is if I get carter upgrade kit am I gonna have the same problem adjusting the lower bearings as I did when I changed the blade oh I do not need to watch Snodgrass as I am dealing with the real world machine I never seen a setup like this in my whole life

Just for the heck of it, did you reinstall the old blade and check for the banging noise? Sounds like there may be a problem with the new blade- kink, teist or bad weld.

Hi Tony, my band saw looks remarkably similar to yours except I have a double row of bearings for each side of the blade.
Firstly check your blade clearance on each side of the blade then check to see if the new blade has a thickening where it is joined. It sounds like your blade clearance to the bearings might be a little tight and this is causing the rhythmic banging sound.
I found with my saw the bearing mounting block were badly machined so I pulled them out and cleaned up the rough bits to make everything work in proper alignment. Make sure your bearings are working correctly as well I got mine replaced under warranty.
It works much better than when I first bought it home but still not really easy to adjust.
Hope this helps.
