A quick tensioning lever for my Craftsman 12 ” Bandsaw. I pull the lever and insert wedge to lock, when detensioned the wedge hangs by blade as a reminder to tension.
their is a lot of tension on the spring your compressing.
mine is built from hickory, handle must be tough, steel would also be a good choice.
this has the potential to be a real knuckle buster!
