Hey guys, newbie here. My first band saw. I installed a new blade 1/4". That went ok as far as I can tell. I started to cut some pretty heavy wood. I notice some black stuff coming from the blade. It was the plastic guide that I was cutting into. Does that mean my blade is not tight or that Ian pushing the material to fast threw the blade? Now I have to find where can I buy the replacement guides for this band saw. I cut into the plastic guide itself. Any ideas would help.
