I was having problems setting up with sloppy rotating blade side discs. Turned up some some lignum vitae dowels to fit. Works a treat in resaw and veneer mode.

A very nice man had already replacd the guide blocks on my BS with LV. Works a treat.

If anyone needs some small pieces of LV I have quite a lot and would be happy to share.
