I have a Delta 52-965 14-inch bandsaw that needs some help. Its
impossible to move the lower guide carriage with the adjustment knob. I
removed it from the saw, and other than some dirt and surface rust on
the guide bar, it looks OK. I was able to get the carriage off of the
guide bar with a rubber mallet. I cleaned up the guide bar, and checked
the carriage, wedges and springs and it all looks OK. The guide bar does
not appear to be bent. But even after cleaning, its really stiff.
What else should I look for? Is there a lubricant that I should use on
the guide bar?
