Tonight I put my new riser block kit on my 14” bandsaw. After getting it all put together, tensioned, etc. I ran it for a few minutes. It threw the blade, so I tried to adjust the tracking.
I put the blade back on, put some tension on, and started turning the upper wheel band hand to get the tracking to adjust a little better. I noticed that the tracking was no longer doing anything, not moving the upper wheel in or out. Even under tension the upper wheel is angled in at the bottom. I can rock the upper wheel back and forth by hand, but can’t get the tracking knob to do anything.
Now I’m at a loss.
Thought I’d ask for help here before I tear anything apart.
Does this sound like a bearing issue?
The upper wheel and the back tension mechanism still move together.
Any advice/ideas are greatly appreciated.
