While doing a tuneup on my 10-325, I noticed the upper wheel had a 1/8” wobble front to back. Looking further, it is actually the sping assembly the wheel bolts into , moving. Is this normal with the blade removed and the tension released? Doesnt seem right to me but I’m no bandsaw tech. Any info would be welcome.

Thanks Dave

Yep, it’s normal. Mine does the same thing. I thought there was a problem with it till I called Rikon.
