EZ40 Blades
« on: May 07, 2021, 10:12:55 AM »
So I've noticed that all blades minus the timberwolfs I bought with the sawmill ride about an 1/8in back off the bandwheel. That causes them to ride the back of my blade guides/rollers. I feel like its dulling those blades quicker due to the heat. Should I adjust the blade guides back or try to adjust the alignment?

Also how ? I had a Frontier sawmill and had to play with alignment a lot but have never adjusted anything on this one yet.

This is a bandwheel tracking issue, i believe, adjustment for this is outlined in the paperwork that came with the mill. 
Mine had the same issue recently, i figure i would do more harm than good trying to write out directions.
I do know it took little actual adjustment, less than 1 full turn of the nut, also you may notice a slight difference in how the band tracks when it is "warmed up" from being tensioned and ran for a bit. 
If in doubt, i would suggest giving them a call at the company, helpful folks there.

Oh, and as far as frequency of adjustments on these mills - mine has around 120 hours on it with about the last 40 or so of those hours using woodmizer blades and i made that first minor tracking adjustment around 10 hours ago.

I will try looking through what he sent along. I thought it was only the engine manual but may have been another sheet. Thanks!
