Bmt 250 setter
« on: February 20, 2019, 05:25:28 PM »
Got my bmt 250 in a month or so ago and just got around to setting it up.   What a tedious process.   Anyway finally got it going and is setting consistently.  Iíve set two blades with it now the power is intermittent.  Holding the jog button down it will go on and off.  Called woodmizer and I think we are on the right track towards getting it fixed.   Think the power transformer is bad.   Just my luck.  Anyway looks like Iím gonna like it but it is very tricky getting it set just right. 

It came with a brand new 9/16 wrench in the box and I donít know why.   Not saying I donít want it just wondered what it was in there for.  I used a lot of tools setting it up but a 9/16 wrench was not one of them. 

Also got the bms250 sharpener with the turbo 7 wheel and it does a great job.   Very pleased with it and it was a lot simpler to get going than the setter. 
Never sharpened or set a blade before and the sharpened one performs just as good as new.  It only took me a week to set these two machines up and get two blades sharpened.  ;)

I need to call Woodmizer and demand my wrench. Lol. I think there may be someone in Indianapolis looking for his wrench.

For the recreational saw filler the best tool I have used lately for sharpening my bandsaw blades is a small flat diamond whetstone, works better than pink wheel, Dremel wheel, small diamond wheel or small metal file, a close second is just a plain old small whetstone it will put a razor edge on the teeth. Please note I only sharpen 1-2 blades by hand and it takes about 10minutes each, but it saved me about $1,000.  I made a very good blade holder which is the key also.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the 9/16 wrench also. 
My new mill came with 10's and I was not impressed, yet on the old mill I swore by 10's 
I am going to order a box of turbo's and the stone to go with them.

If youíve got the hp to pull it you will never look back once you get the turboís.   Iíve only got 27hp and I would not want to be much lower than that.  I push them as hard as I can without choking the motor down.   The harder you push them the smoother they cut.

Turbos and Carbide 7's are the only profiles I have for both mills now.

SS are you sharpening the carbides? Do you set the carbides?
What wheel are you using?
