    Thank s for that info I was understood that Jet came from Germany. Certainly would be cheaper to fit stronger hardware. appreciate your comment. jh

    Good news, as I suspected the tracking adjustment changing in use.

    Good luck trying to find a current Jet/Powermatic dealer or new machine or parts support in Australia.

    IF you are going to purchase a new saw insist that the vendor can prove that they hold current stock of the "consumable" parts, items like guides, bearings etc. Australian wood workers / turners are really in a poor position when it comes to service / support for machinery, particularly with the "grey import" / "parallel import" of clone machines.

    So the blade is walking of coming off towards the user, and not being pushed off the back of the wheel.?
    If so likely the lower wheel jacking bolts need adjustment.
    Moving the shaft north will make the blade track on the rear of the wheel.
