I have a grizzly bandsaw that uses 92 1/2 – 93 1/2” blades. I picked up a delta blade 4tpi from lowes, completely destroyed the package getting it out, put it on the wheels and didn’t fit. I already have the tension set to max to accommodate the 3/4” blade, but when I pull the tension handle it is nowhere near tight enough. The wheel bands look fine, I always release the tension when not in use. It’s just tight enough to roll on the wheels when spinning with my finger, but I would not dare turn it on. Has anybody or would it be possible I have a bad blade or do I need to look at getting into the nuts and bolts of the bandsaw? Personally I’m leaning toward the blade because the saw hasn’t been used that much.
