    Dave,
    If you need any wood cut while you are getting things figured out, I will be happy to cut whatever you need done.
    Let me know if you need my mailing address. For me it would be a chance to return a favor.

    PS:
    One other thing to look at.
    If you take your bandsaw blade and lay it on a table with the spine of the blade against the table, is the width of the blade square to the tabletop? or does it lean. A crooked weld would cause it to lean and not cut correctly.

    I can do the cutting too. I am a bit closer than Mark. And yes, it would be a rush job.

    Dave, if you're able to, you may want to adjust your trunnions and make sure that your wheels are coplanar. Also, if your band saw has poly or rubber wheels/ tires make sure that they aren't worn or warped, if so, you may need to purchase replacements. Hope this helps.

    You guys are too cool to offer to help me on the cutting. I also received a couple of PM's for this too. I'm hoping not to have to take anyone up on this but if things don;t change soon I just might. I REALLY appreciate this!

    Also, thanks for the advice, I'm trying everything suggested.

    It's a 12" Craftsman which I think is actually a Rikon

    Dave do you have a model number? You may be having the same issue that my neighbor had not too long ago. With his, it turned out that the wheels were not coplanar and he had issues with the arbor being bent slightly.
