Well, I got my Powermatic 14" bandsaw set up....wasn,t to much trouble. But,
I waited 2 months to get the saw, back-order; then it didn,t have the
tensioner bar n knob with it. Dealer said they had a production run problem,
I will get it soon, ....I hope.
Anyway, I tensioned the blade by hand n fired it up......wow....what
a difference from my old Sear`s 14" bandsaw. Diffently think i,m gonna like
this one. I got a HTC mobile base for it, and a Wood Slicer blade for
re-sawing from Highland Hardware...I don,t do a lotta re-sawing though. I
still have a brade new Sear`s 1/2" blade also. I don,t know how good the
blade is that it came with, cuts okay in pine. I set the tension for a 3/8
blade, seems a lil loose, may tighten that up after I use it a lil.
Anyway, wanna say thanks for the help you gave me along the way in
set-up and other info. This saw has a nice finish to it. I used to run my
cool blocks closer than these bearing are.....think they,ll be okay.....I,ll
let you know when i start another project.
Okay, gotta go.......(got all my stationary tools on wheels
now...easier for clean-up....later.....George..
