Check to see if the bracket behind the upper wheel is not cracked or broken. If you never take the tention off your blade it may have cracked. I had a saw do this to me in the past. Put the blade back on work for a bit and the blade would come off.

I did check and its fine. I let off the tension on the blade every night after I use it. I used the saw all day today with a brand new Timber Wolf blade.. I also moved the blade in some and fiddled with all the rollers and gadgets on there. I noticed the blade was running on the inside of the tire at the top and almost off the tire and the bottom. I got it somewhat co-planer although I know it doesn’t have to be exact. I did tighten it up a bit as well. It ran really good with no issues so far. It cut pretty damn straight. I re-sawed some mahogany and beech with out a hitch. I still cant get to the bottom guide to bring it in some one said above, i guess Ill have to take the table off.
