Bandsaw blade wheels

4x6 metal bandsaw blade wheels

After testing both blade wheels for running off-center, I found the blade contact surface to be very irregular.

For the bandsaw blade to run without vibration, wheels surfaces shouldn't be irregular. So, both blade wheels were trued outside, solving a quite small off-center and a not so small problem of irregular wheels surfaces.

A spring mounted on the tensioning knob helps when loosening the blade.
