Well-- I've never really had trouble with the alignment of them-- they've stayed pretty good. I have replaced the rollers (bearings) as needed but the holders for them seem to stay lined up pretty well. Let's ask a few questions.

1. Do you know if the person you bought it from was the original owner?
2. Do you know if the mill has been modified in any way? (mine has a few mods)
3. Do you know how old it is?
4. Did you receive a manual with it?
5. Does it have any hydraulics or power movement features (such as power up/down)?
6. Have you talked to the factory yet?

Ours is somewhere around 10-12 years old. The phone number for the manufacturer is decalled on our mill and I have called them several times in the last year and a half. If it is not on your mill, you can get it from their website. Or I can dig it up for you. The manual probably has a section on the roller bearing wheels, but like I said I have not had to look at that section. All in all, it is a fairly good mill, and you can get most of the parts locally from off-the-shelf suppliers.

1. Yes, original owner.
2. No mods that I've found besides the throttle cable, which I've replaced more like the original.
3. Approx. 8 years.
4. Seller could not find it, promised to mail it to me if he finds it.
5. All manual.
6. I emailed Turner yesterday inquiring about an owners manual, haven't heard back from them yet.

I'm sure I'll be able to figure out the guide rollers, can't be that different from a shop bandsaw, just larger. The other thing I  was going to ask was about tire pressure on the blade wheels?

I'm exhausted from a very exciting day. Heading off to the sack, I'll check back tomorrow.

Good Night All.

Jack.

About the tire pressure, mine have stayed up pretty good and I have never changed the pressure. So, having not had to deal with the issue, I suggest going with the recommended pressure printed on the side of the tire.
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.

I checked the pressure on the tires today. The drive wheel was at 6 psi, and the other barely registered......... :o
They're rated up to 60psi. I'll fill them to 45 and work from there. Ordered some blades from Cooks today. They said they would ship Wed or Thurs next week......Ugh!!! I'll be spending all day tomorrow wire brushing - priming and painting. I know that it works fine as it is, but I hate getting covered in rust, and it doesn't look good to prospective customers.

You could end up needing to get some new tires.  Shouldn't break the bank too bad.  You can probably get them already mounted on the rims just as cheap as you could buy just the tires and have them mounted. Unless you are capable of mounting them yourself.
