I've had my bandsaw (BS1400) since March of 2011. All that time it's had the 3/8" blade that came with the saw. I have grandsons that would like to learn woodworking and so I changed out the blade to a 1/4" to help them make turns easier in 1/2" wood. When I tried tracking the new blade, there was a horrendous scraping sound coming from the upper housing as the blade came to the middle of the upper wheel. When I applied power to try it out, it REALLY sounded bad and I shut it down. Since the only help I get from customer service is to pack it up and haul it 79 miles from my home to have it checked out, I'm sure there's got to be a simpler solution. Has anyone experienced a similar problem that could be fixed without having to haul my bandsaw around the country? Appreciate any help you could offer.
