Hello to all…
From the title of this post you can see what I have for a band saw. It comes with bearing-style guides on both sides of the blade and also one at the back. Almost everything that I’ve read on the web says to keep these bearing guides AWAY from the blade. Some even tell you to use a business card or a dollar bill to gauge the distance the bearing needs to be from the blade. I just read an article on American Woodworker that said that these bearing-style guides are designed to REST AGAINST THE BLADE because it keeps the blade from wandering under pressure. Which is the proper way of positioning these bearing guides?
