Mr Unix, great post for that video, very educational. I never knew that the teeth should be centered on the tire, I was always taught the entire blade should be centered. I got the 3/4” resaw blade thinking that would provide a straighter cut and stand up to higher tension, but if that video is accurate then a 1/2” blade is the max this saw can take.

I’ve pulled the upper wheel and the tracking arm seems fine. No cracks, doesn’t look bent. I did notice that the upper axle had a little bit of wiggle in it, but in removing the arm I see that the axle isn’t really firmly attached so maybe this is normal?

Thanks all for the help, this has been super educational.
