TK manual does say check the blade alignment while on the tracks.  Good instruction on what to do in pdf of manual manual. Also watched a bunch of cooks saw videos. Figured take my time and get the blade and guide roller perfect. Did order new cooks guide rollers. Will need to weld them onto the mill when they get here.

Had to use a shaft spacer for the predator motor. 1 inch shaft to 1-1/8 shaft adapter. The mounting holes lined up just right for mounting the engine.

Maybe it should go without saying, but also check your motor alignment with your drive pulley, I have in my hasty to get something going got it “looking pretty good” and not bothering to put a straight edge across them.  That makes for excessive vibrations and belts coming off and prematurely wearing out. Hope it goes well with you.  Banjo

The mill is cutting wood.

First log.  Nice white oak.  Just a little iron in the log.  But missed it.




Finishing the last side of the cant.

Great job!!!  You might want to check the tension on your drive belt.  Maybe it's just the camera but it sure seemed to have a lot of fluctuation in it and that will negatively impact band speed, which will affect cut quality.  It's a regular maintenance thing, usually in the 50 hour range.

TK has a tool for proper drive belt tension.  It does that on the slack side of the drive belt, and some is normal.  it is a spring loaded telescoping force meter.  the belts are heavy duty double wide.

Don't forget this this is a 2007 model of the 1220.  It does not have a spring loaded belt tensioner.  Just the position of the motor.  I do think it could use a tensioner.  The belt is just a single BX88 belt. 91 inches long.   From watching youtube I see the newer mills do have a belt tensioner.  I will have to check with Timberking about tensioner.   I am using a new belt.  Plus I changed out all the fuel hose.

I have noticed with my mill, the more the drive belt is flopping around, the rougher the cut. When the tension is adjusted tight enough so the belt isn't flopping about, I get a much smoother cut (finish). With the drive belt flopping, it's like you have a few teeth with too much set. With your drive belt flopping around, your band speed is fluctuating to the tune of the belt flopping about, which would lead to the blade tension fluctuating in the cut, which would also lead to quicker blade fatigue and failure. A smooth running drive belt means a smooth running band speed which gives a smoother cut.
