    Default Delta 12í 28-190 blade guides

    Hi all,
    Picked up a 2nd BS as per subject line, not too small and not too big, so far works for exactly I need it for.

    Question about the blade guides. Iíve seen on YouTube that this particular model has a thrust bearing, and two sliding friction bearings.
    My BS has been changed to have the 2 friction bearings and the thrust bearing is removed and a grooves mini pulley type wheel is fitted . The rear of the blade rides in this groove.

    Now my questions are:
    1. is the thrust bearing better than the grooved pulley type or visa versa? With the grooves pulley type, the blade is nowhere near the friction bearings.
    2. Is this a problem? There is a bit of sideways blade movement and i have had the blade jump off the groove.

    Thanks for your input

    Looks like your blade guides aren't doing anything

    No they are not, hence the post to see if the set up is correct with the new grooved wheel

    Looking at it I'd say there's nothing actually wrong with the setup other than it just won't work.

    Personally I'd be looking at setting it up as designed with the thrust & friction.
