It's arrived!

Recommended Posts

Be careful when you set the wheels, I had a slight mishap that could have been a lot worse.

The manual says something along the lines of tension the blade to xx, back off the tension lever one full turn, track the blade, and then put the full xx tension back on and then rotate the wheels by hand, this I did and the blade sprung off the front of the wheels catching me on my forearm and the bridge of my nose puncturing both.

The worrying thing is that the puncture on my nose could easily have been my eye!

In the end the only way I could get the blade to stay on at full tension was to track it at full tension which makes more sense logically then the method in the manual.
