First, I have read the pros and cons of de-tensioning the band saw blade, and go with those who say you should do it. My neighbor doesn’t … when he starts up his band saw, the tires are in such bad shape it sounds like a corn sheller and vibrates all over the place.

I have the Carter system on my Jet 14”, and it is great … I find myself using the band saw now more than before I installed the Carter, and it does make blade changes a lot faster. My band saw purrs like a kitten.
