Thread: New Subscription Freebies
28/06/2009 21:48:33
I have just received an e-mail adressing me as an "ex-subscriber" to MEW, and inviting me to take out a subscription (with free gift).  As I subscribe by Direct Debit there is no logic in this, it is irksome and worrying (has my subscription stopped for some reason?).  
  I don't agree with Locked areas for subscribers only, unless non-subscribers are allowed a couple of visits to see what they're missing.  I'm not sure about it then anyway, it's the old  "clique" thing again.
Thread: Transfers

I have had transfer paper from, but I bought it via EBay.
Different types available, comes with complete instructions, price I think about £1.50 a sheet.

Thread: Band saw blade comming off pulley

Hi Paul,  you may be able to adjust the blade tracking, as I can on my old Warco bandsaw.    On the outside of the saw in line with and inboard from the two bolts that hold the idler wheel/blade tensioner is a grub screw buried in the casting. This should adjust the tracking by "tilting" the idler wheel. It's the same principle on all bandsaws,whether wood or metal cutting, though much easier to adjust on a woodcutting saw as it's vertical.  Trial and error is the only way, using small adjustments.  You can stand the saw in its vertical cutting position, open the blade guard and adjust it while turning the saw by hand, when you can see what is happening to the tracking,   Blade must be fully tensioned of course, and stout gloves are essential.
This is how I do the woodcutting saws we have.
Of course, sometimes the blade comes off for no good reason, like mine did today,just because I haven't used the saw for ages!
