How much down pressure on the guides. I would set the guide to just touch the guide,  no down deflection.

FEDX say's they ship to Canada.
Suffolk would be loosing more than they know if they can't figure out how to ship to the same continent.

How are you sharpening/setting blades?

I do have a bit of deflection in the guides, not quite 1/8". Maybe will try setting even with wheels.
Not sure why these companies won't deal up here but Suffolk isn't the only one. Tried to get in touch with Kenne Saw and 21 Saw shop but no-one has replied to my inquiries. A while back when I first phoned Suffolk, I was told it was a licensing thing ???.

I sharpen and set with a Dino auto sharpener and setter.

With our mail order business, we tried to ship to Canada.   There was one dealer that got a shipping address in Michigan. He would drive there and cross back with his boxes.
  Seems that there are 2 reasons for the problem. One is cheap buyers that don't want to pay the duty on what they buy. The other is the duty and arrest of items so the canadian govt can see if the duty was actually paid. If an item is produced in Canada, and then returned for service, the govt. arrests the item and does the search. That CAN take a couple of weeks.

 We had that problem when we bought out Barringer's Magnetometer Division. ::) ::)
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
