Now that I finally bought a good band saw I’ve decided to treat it better than my old one. It’s recommended that the blade tension should be released when it’s no in use. My solution was to make a knod that would be easy to adjust. This knob has a recess that fits the tension knob on the machine. I placed a reference mark on the edge of the knob. To release the tension I rotate the knob counterclockwise 4 revolutions and clockwise 4 revolutions to retension the blade. It works fine.
