Wood-Mizer is not the only blade out there, frankly, I wonder why folks still hold so fast to this.  These blades broke on a constant cycle when I used them, they work, they just break, at least on my mill.  Kasco blades if possible to obtain for those in search would be well worth trying,.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Dejan, I overlooked the fact that you have an LT20.  My apology, as I have no experience with the LT20. 

I have not experienced the blade breakage problem that drobertson commented on in the above reply.  Many years ago I had an entire box of blades to break in the weld and the problem was isolated to a particular welder.  They were all replaced under warranty.

Thanks  for the information you gave. I installed new rollers on both sides, new blade and replaced the main belt. One problem. Set the blade pressure at 2400lbs and the inside roller has pressure on it and rolls with the blade all the time. The outside roller doesn't roll at all. Is there a distance from the roller that the blade has to be set with a feeler gauge? The WM manual doesn't say anything about it at all.

The blade guides on most sawmills are set " below the bandwheels.

 I think your blade is not level with the bunks, with the blade tensioned back the guide rollers off the blade so they're not touching then measure from the blade to the deck (measure several bunks to make sure one isn't bent ), I think WM recommends the blade should be 1/16 higher on the outside, then adjust  both guide rollers to push the blade down 1/4". Also how is the round rail that the head rides on?  I've seen one that was half wore off in the middle which I think would make the head tilt different in the middle where the most wear was. Steve
