Band saw
« on: August 07, 2012, 03:20:59 AM »
Tried to use the band saw tonight, turns out the belt drive was disconnected from the shaft.  I took the front plate off, and started fiddling with it.  Looks like the only thing it needs is to have the belt put back on it, and a screw the correct size matched up with the pulley and thrown back on.  Was it purposely disabled for some reason?


Anyways, as soon as I can get a match for the nut, I'll throw the pulley back on there and get it up and running again.  Do we know where the crank shaft went for it (for setting the angle of the blade)?

Myself and Dave Woods adjusted and fixed a few mis-aligned parts on Thursday or Friday and I can tell you that it was in awesome shape when he was done fiddling.
I like colors.

Bought a 5/16 screw tonight, pulley is reinstalled with the belt set for the low(er) speed.  Works like a charm again.  My guess is that the old set screw vibrated out and caused the pulley to become disengaged.

Thanks Thantik, John, and Dave for fixing it. I don't even know how to use it, and you guys are over there fixing all the things. :)
