My friend Joe in Europe sent me the following photograph; it shows the location of the set screws used to adjust the position of the guide post column, and to remove any slop in its movement:
If anyone has a problem adjusting the guide post position after it is moved up or down, use the set screws in your band saw. It is likely to solve any positioning problems you are experiencing. You might have to remove globs of fusion-bonded (or other) paint to get to the set screws.
Thanks, Joe, for following up and sending this photo. I hope it will help someone reading the blog!
