I had a similar noise and found that changing the blade eliminated it. What blade are you using?
Just put on a woodslicer .5" about 2 months ago. The grizzly one that came with it was horribleI had a similar noise and found that changing the blade eliminated it. What blade are you using?
when i took off the tire to be replaced i checked all bearings, and found that they were all good and spinning freely. I will check again when i get home.check your lower thrust bearing and blade guide adjustment. The blade is probably being forced past the thrust bearing.
Thanks, but with what i already had to deal with this saw I dont feel comfortable/safe putting a piece of wood through it with no guides. When I first got it the urethane tires wouldnt even stay on the saw. I would turn it on, and in like 10 seconds the tires and blade would come shooting off the wheelsThat sure does sound like the blade thrust bearing doing some chirping.
A good saw will be able to run the blade with the blade guide hardware completely removed. I d do that and see if the sound is still there.
Cool bandsaw action cam footage!
Sorry I meant "make sure they were spinning freely"Thrust bearing (the one behind the blade). Go to a bearing supply house for replacement bearings that are SEALED, NOT SHIELDED.
What did you mean by "not spinning freely"?

Did you ever get a resolution on this? I am having the same noise when i use my 1" resew blade on the same saw.So I went and video taped the bottom thrust bearing and it appears to be working fine. Heres the video:
Bottom Thrust Bearing
I did order new ones which should be here today. Ill put one on and see what happens and update
That's the guide bearings chirping. They all will do that some. I learned to adjust my blade better, and I don't get it like I used to.Britztopher, any resolution on this? I was out using my G0513P today and noticed the exact same noise. I pulled the lower wheel off (after loosening the belt) and the bearings inside the cast aluminum wheel are both good. It almost sounds like the noise is coming from the electrical motor…. I currently have the 3/8" blade installed.
