What's wrong with my bandsaw? Answered
I bought a Craftsman 10-inch bandsaw (http://www.amazon.com/Craftsman-10-in-Band-Saw/dp/B001TQPOG4/ref=pd_sxp_f_pt) 4 months ago. At first, it fuctioned normally and cut at a fast rate. But now, it can barely cut through anything; it took me a minute to cut through 3 inches of 1/2 particle board, and the blade nearly came to a stop while I was doing it. Even 1/8 acrylic can slow down the wheels to a crawl. The bandsaw is tuned correctly, it has enough power, nothing is clogged with dust (as far as I can tell), the blade feels sharp (I could be wrong) and there is no visible external damage. What could be the problem?
(I have a 2 year warranty on it, so if it's broken, then I can get a new one. And if you need pictures of anything, just ask.)
