Model 310 Heartwood bandsaw counter
« on: February 20, 2012, 09:43:09 PM »
I am new to this forum, actually 1st time to even be on a forum. I need some help. Hoping someone may already figured out a solution. On a model 310 Heartwood bandsaw portable diesel. It has a PTL computer setworks. The counter h7br was discontinued.  It needed replaced, so the h7bx was installed. Problem is I can not get the auto lower head and preset buttons to work.  It just continues all the way to the bottom when pushed.

I can't help you with your problem, but can offer you a welcome! Never heard of a Heartwood, had to look them up. Nice mill 80HP diesel, huh? Do you have the double cut? Of course, we need to see some photos!

Thanks. Yes, it is 80hp diesel double cut. No pictures available yet too stressed trying to get going. I will work on that maybe would help to see panel I'm dealing with.

Solution found in 2 parts.
1   The replacement h7bx counter does not do the same job. It will not work for us.
2.  The preset button used with the auto lower head was not set properly. The instructions were not as clear and we misinterpreted them.
So at least some is good news. Knowledge is great anyway. Thanks for the welcome.

welcome to the forum, I can't help with any of the problems that you are having.  I'm just drooling over some of the specs on your saw.  I'm really curious how a blade guide would work on a double cut saw.  Do I understand it right, are there teeth on both sids of your 6" wide blade?  Are you sure you have enough hp? (yah, I'm kidding).  It looks like you've chosen some amazing epuipment.  I bet your offbearers are in great shape trying to keep up with ya.
I cut it twice and it's still too short
