I am going to post the Alex Snodgrass video, and he will tell you at exactly the 6 minute mark NOT to adjust the wheels on a bandsaw, because the manufacturer put them where they wanted them to be. Moving or changing them will mess you up.

So look at the video, and when you are satisfied this guy who travels the country, and will walk up to the bandsaw you brought in, and use it after only a minute of fiddling. That bandsaw will be said to cut as well as the best bandsaw on the planet. He’s got the chops. Only question is will you believe him, and call the manufacturer for instructions of setting your wheels, which is what needs to be done.

6 minute mark. The entire video will help you a lot, but not until you get the angle of your wheels fixed.

Good luck.
