rikon 10-325 tension spring assembly movement? - 2 replies
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

Been using my jointer on a make-do roll around dolly since I bought it last summer but it sat about 6” higher than it should have, not good for a short- legged guy.

Hey guys, 1st time poster. I’ve been enjoying this forum for a few months now and thought I would share my latest project and get some constructive criticism as well.
