See any improvement Goose?
I am trying not to be critical but the pictures that Kb posted above of his blade guides may be fine for a hobby sawmill but with no way to adjust horizontal or vertical tilt, production sawing would be compromised.
I really like the way they press down slightly on the band.
Hey all, Im looking to upgrade my Woodland 126 with a set of cooks rollers. Im trying to see how other owners have upgraded their mills with these but my searches in this forum as well as on the google machine have only shown the same model built in other years that are not assembled the same way as mine. The ones other members have done and posted photos I could find are not built the same way mine is. Mine built in 2014 does not have adjustable cutting width and the current guides are mounted to the mill on a 1" shaft with single set screw off a vertical welded steel tube. Anyone have any experience with installing cooks guides on this model and type? Im fully capable of welding up any brackets needed but would like some suggestions or inspiration on what already works rather than starting to cut parts off the saw in order to fabricate my own jig. Thanks, Danny
Dannyland, did you ever get them Cooks guides installed on your Woodland 126 mill? If you did I would like to see how you mounted them. I bought a set of them and they showed up in the mailbox last night so am going to try to find some time to install them this weekend. It looks like I am going to have to cut off a couple inches of the tube that the old blocks are mounted to and make a reversed looking C out of 1 1/2" square tubing to get the roller in the correct location to ride on the band correctly. I have the same problems as you did, wavy cuts and bearings going out. Hopefully this will take care of the problems, also I am on my second drive belt because it was scrubbing one side of the belt off. Got to looking at it and when the old one got bad I thought it was just a cheap belt so I bought a good Gates belt installed it and after 30hrs it started doing the same. Well when I installed the new belt and tightened it up that one bolt that slides the engine to tighten the belt it doesn't pull the engine square so the clutch pulley wasn't aligned with the drive pulley so it started to scrub that side of the belt off again. So when you tighten your drive belt make sure the clutch pulley is running true to your drive pulley or you will just tear up your new belt.
...that flat plate suppose to mount under the blade. ...
Any ideas of why this would be getting warm?
...when you grabbed it by hand to turn it, it would just slip and not turn the blade with it so it wasn't making must contact with the blade.
