    Dayton bandage help

    I just bought this saw used on Craigslist and I'm having trouble setting up the blade on it.

    Does anyone have a manual for this model?

    I think the roller guides may be incorrect, but I'm new to the band saw scene. It seems like the rollers are so tight that the blade cannot move through them, but there isn't any adjustment to the guide mechanisms. Is my blade too thick? I'm getting 0.0175 thickness but I calculated 0.0085 between the rollers.

    Check and see if the rollers have a nut on top to tighten them. Loosen that then turn the rollers. That may change the gap. I say this since the housing for the rollers on my Wellsaw are elliptical and I can widen or lessen the gap that way.

    I just noticed that... Lol hours of frustration, I post for help, then another few minutes of tinkering and bam.

    That said, thank you!! I probably wouldn't have figured it out if you didn't post.

    I am glad it was an easy fix. Make sure you spray some lube onto the bearings or rollers and do not over tighten them against the blade. I will open up the rollers when I need to change the blade or check the tension of the rollers on the blade every coupme of months.

    If you have the 4" x 6" Metal-Cutting Bandsaw, it may be similar to the Grizzly G0622 - 4" x 6" Metal-Cutting Bandsaw .

    If so you can get the manual for the Grizzly bandsaw here:

    http://cdn0.grizzly.com/manuals/g0622_m.pdf

    Page 36 has the info on the blade guide bearings.

    Do you use oil or something special on the rollers?

    Thanks for being so helpful guys! My saw seems to be different than the Grizzly/Chinese clones but you all have helped me take my first step up from abrasive saw.

    I appreciate your willingness to help!!

    Probably not, there just isn't one available.
