It’s difficult to believe band saw manufacturers haven’t figured out how to send their machines out the door with co-planer wheels after decades of building theme, in the course of competing with each other for sales.

My PM wheels aren’t co-planer and never will be, unless whoever gets it after me tampers with it.

My fence will not adjust for drift without a lot of work. It locks at the front and back. If I had to tweak the fence each time I swapped blades, it, probably, wouldn’t get used for anything other than scroll work.

My fence is nothing to write home about, but it will give me veneer or whatever I ask of it. All I have to do is get the gullet on center and the tension right.
