All he's doing is ruining a good thread. We're short on good posts around here as it is.
Maybe a mod could do some cleanup in here.


SM, the ol' saw is looking good.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine. If the OP had taken the advice offered by me and others here, this thread would probably be over by now. Calling it like it is never ruined anything as I see it. 

If you think the board is short of "good posts" (I don't) offer one up.

There are cheaper guides but probably retrofitting them would be a bit more work and time and they may not spin the largest blade that saw can handle.

As for tracking, as long as the wheels are coplanar, then it all depends on the crown of the tire.  How good are those tires?Th
The tires are in good shape. To change the belt, I had to loosen the centering bolts on the lower wheel (Couldn't pull the wheel off even with a puller) and pull the whole wheel and shaft out. So when I put it back in, I adjusted the co-planer to the top wheel. Tracks wonderfully.
I did get the carters (through sawblade.com) they are well made; but very finicky to adjust! I think they could make some of the Allen head machine screws the same size, instead of needing 4 Allen keys to put them on and adjust them. by going through sawblade.com, I saved almost 70.00!
Now where is that chisel

"I'm sure there are other band saws that use that same trunnion; randomly searching parts diagrams isn't in my fun list!"

Best of luck with that plywood and epoxy. BTW, attempting to patronize me is also not one of your long suits.

Being an 18B in the Army for 17 years. I sort of have a talent for seeing an instigator when they are in a crowd. The comment about not wanting to search through hundreds of parts lists was a humorous attempt at comic relief which failed miserably. I appreciate the help; even if said with sarcasm.

18b - Weapons Sargent, company grade. 

I was only in the Army 6 years, but spent an entire professional career in sales, administration and management. In my field "calling them like you see them" was always encouraged, rather than being called an "instigator." My statement still stands - this thread would probably be over had you taken the advice offered.
