The wonders of Harbor Freight….

         After getting a new band saw, I needed a way to balance the two wheels.  Being a small amount off-balance will make the table vibrate, making it hard to complete precise cuts.  One way of balancing the wheels without having to take them off, uses a dial indicator.  Dial indicators can be used to show small amounts of change in distance.  The local hardware store had a set for $79.  Thinking that was too much, I checked Harbor Freight….there was the same set for $29.  Maybe not the best quality, but it would work perfect for what I am doing.
