Post: RE: Rikon Bandsaw Drive Belt Problem

I have that bandsaw but I've never had that issue. That being said, it sounds like maybe the belt just needs to have the tension adjusted.

Post: RE: Washing Machine Standpipes Questions

Your issue might be caused by a lint buildup in the p-trap or discharge piping. If you are not already using one, a mesh lint trap may help, https://www.menards.com/main/plumbing/plumbing-installatio...
