Good morning all.
I bought a used 14" band saw with a riser block last year and am wondering if I can take the riser block back off. It cuts nice and straight through thick or thin hardwood. Cutting curves seems to be the problem. I cannot get a nice curve on it, no matter what I do. I’ve reset up the machine so many times now I could probably do it in my sleep. Tied more tension, less tension, more teeth, less teeth. about the only thing I haven’t replaced are the wheels themselves. I’ve replaced the tires, guide blocks (a few times). It will do tight curves and large curves, but they all come out bumpy for lack of better term. Sure do have to sand a lot. Is it me or just the saw. It’s a King Canada 14". Or should I just try to unload it on some poor soul and buy a new one. Very frustrated. My table saw and band saw are the main tools in my little garage shop.
