    Bandsaw Vibration

    Check the clearance on the guide blocks / bearings. The weld could be causing a slight stopage each time it passes between them. If the weld is rough, a couple swipes with a Dremel will take care of that. Because it's happening with more than one blade, I suspect it's in the wheels. Take the...

    Table saw maintenance

    If you can hear them, then it's time. They aren't going to get any better on their own. Most likely you have 6203 2RS bearings which are a little under three bucks each at Fastenal. Yeah, they are Chinese, but my daughter's Honda Civic has one in the belt tension pulley that has over 300K miles...

    Carter BS quick realease

    The USA made Delta 14" bandsaws are pretty generic. Parts from the 1937 model, fit the 1994 models. Only the color, and how the door is mounted (hinged, or studs and knobs) have changed. Stands and motors have changed, but basic saw is the same. Get a copy of Loius Ittura's catalogue. It's the...

    Bandsaw Tire Check

    A new set of tires is in order. Do both, as they are the same age. The smelling of burning rubber is probably the lower (driven) slipping on the wheel. Online, check and see if "Blue Max" has tires to fit.
