Hi.Delmer here,I am new to this forum and new at milling.
Was wondering if there was anyone that could help me set my blade on the saw (LT50 Super), I am doing something  wrong and don't know what to do. I live in the Hawkins,TX area.

Thanks Delmer

Hi Delmer. Welcome to the Forum. I can't help you with the blade, but I'm sure someone will before too long. I'm sure that one thing that will be suggested is to put your location in your profile. It's easier to find it there than in the message.

I'm thinking some of the more knowledgeable folks will want to know what symptoms you are struggling with. How do you know it the blade? Give them some more details. There is a lot of knowledge here.  Good luck taking it all in. And, with the blade problem. Don

If for an LT 70 and the hardware on a 50 is a little different now.  The idea is the same.

hello Delmar.  Are you putting a blade on the mill, or sharpening and setting the tooth on the blade?  Or setting an adjustment on the blade tracking?

If you are sharpening and setting the Woodmizer Blade Handbook is a really good resource.  

An internet search will find it.

Did you put the band on backwards?  I have heard that they will make a really strange noise when that happens. Like I said, I have heard that, from a friend, yea that's what happened.  ffcheesy

What do you mean by set the blade on the sawmill? "Set" usually means the distance a tooth is bent out to the side or to bend a tooth out to the slide of the band.
