    I like your tilting head vertical bandsaw and ironworker. They are the cat's a$$! Did you sand the paint off the pads and chains before bolting them together? The wear on the rails looks excessive for 200 hours. I wonder if the rails and rollers have to be a matched set from the same manufacturer?
