I've almost assembled a Grizzly G1010 $200 bandsaw, but have two problems. I've read the $200 bandsaw FAQ.
- For the mechanical saw stop, it looks like there's a black, "z" shaped piece of metal which should make contact with a large hex head bolt (the height of this bolt is changed to adjust the stopping height of the blade). I can't figure out what to attach the "z" shaped piece to. Without the piece, the bolt will hit the wheel cover.
- There is a 5/16" bolt for tensioning the motor belt. The head of the bolt has a small hexagonal shaped handle for hand operation. The handle interferes with the gear box. Should I just replace the bolt with a shorter conventional bolt with a smaller head or is there a better way to fix this?
Thanks for any help.
