How do you prevent chain wrapping? My machine never had this issue before, but has sat fallow for a few months. It happened on the left side, so I went through calibration again, and retired the cut on the ruined price. Now it happened on the right.
this is usually caused by the chain angles, but if it was working and now it’s
not, it could be that the chains need to be lubricated. I would suggest a
graphite or silicoln chain lub (something that won’t have sawdust sticking to
I would agree that it is probably an issue with the bands getting weak from setting with tension on them for a while. When you stopped using it, did you leave any tension on the bands or did you unhook them?
If it was not for the door that is right there, I would have suggested going over the top of the sprockets and using a 2l bottle full of water instead of the bands.
I played with the bands initially but quickly went with the “gravity assist” method. I have not had a chain wrap or skip since (other than the time I forgot to hang the bottle bottles back on the chains).
