Ogam PO-280 multi Rip4/21
I have this machine repaired but after couple of weeks of using it went back to the same problem.
The problem is after ripping, the wood is sometime not straight meaning it slight curving at the end of each piece.
While looking at the gang belt, i can see the belt is not moving straight but curve at one side. I try to see if i can get a video of it.
One side of the belt on the surface is almost not rought, probably being using it for long. Could it because is no more spiky thats why the feed moves?
Please help and advise.
If the top surface of the chain, where the wood contacts it, is worn to the point of not gripping the wood tightly, you are asking for the wood to move on the chain. Dull blades will also cause that, especially if one blade is sharp and others are not. It will drift towards the dull blade. On the sprocket you are pointing to, is there uneven wear between the two sides? You also need to check the rails for wear, the pieces that the chain slide on. If the chain is wore out or flat, and the rails are worn, replace the saw. You probably won't even find parts for that saw anymore. I just went through most of this on my Pinheiro AMA 260 last summer. Was lucky enough to be able to still get parts for mine.
Thank you so much for your reply.
If the top of the chain is worn out, can we apply some epoxy on it so that i can grip the wood of if there is any other options then to replace the chain.
i will check the spocket once lockdown is over here ...
