I've almost assembled a Grizzly G1010 $200 bandsaw, but have two problems.
I've read the $200 bandsaw FAQ.
1. 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.
2. 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.
